The UFC will once again spoil enthusiastic MMA fans this weekend when the promotion fires up their cameras in Pittsburgh at UFC Live 4 on Sunday night thanks to a recent announcement that the entire lot of preliminary pairings will be shown live through the company’s Facebook page.
The possibility of the move to stream the undercard first surfaced early Monday via a report on MMAWeekly and was later confirmed by the UFC itself.
Among the fights being made available for the public to watch starting at approximately 4:55 PM EST are the featherweight debuts of former 155-pound stars Tyson Griffin and Joe Stevenson. Griffin, a well-rounded grappler out of Xtreme Couture, takes on former title-contender Manny Gamburyan while Stevenson will look to get back to the same success earning him a TUF 2 championship with WEC veteran Javier Vazquez standing in the way.
Other fights include Michael Johnson vs. Edward Faaloloto, Rich Attonito vs. Daniel Roberts, Nik Lentz vs. Charles Oliveira, Ricardo Lamas vs. Matt Grice, Charlie Brenneman vs. T.J. Grant, and Joe Lauzon vs. Curt Warburton.
After the prelims viewers can then flip over to Versus at 9:00 PM EST to catch main card action featuring headliners Rick Story and Nate Marquardt mixing it up, as well as Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo and Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft.
