In the promotion’s never-ending quest to bring MMA to the masses, the UFC has announced it will broadcast two otherwise unaired Fight Night 23 bouts for free through the organization’s official Facebook page. The pair of prelims receiving the rub are TUF 9 finalist DaMarques Johnson’s scrap with Mike Guymon and one-of-a-kind Cody McKenzie’s attempt at submitting veteran competitor Yves Edwards for the first time in four years.
“I’m always looking for ways to give fans fights for free and this is just another example of that,” explained Dana White of the decision. “Facebook is such a great tool for people to stay connected and we’re excited to put two live fights on our UFC page for free.”
The stream will begin at 8:00 PM EST.
On top of McKenzie vs. Edwards and Guymon vs. Johnson, Mixed Martial Arts’ enthusiasts can tune in to Saturday night’s “Fight for the Troops” event on Spike TV and also catch heavyweights’ Pat Barry and Joey Beltran facing off, in addition to Matt Mitrione and Tim Hague, as well as Mark Hominick’s bid to become top featherweight contender against George Roop and a headlining clash between heavy-handed Melvin Guillard and 11-1 contender Evan Dunham.
