5 Prelims from UFC 131 to Stream Live on YouTube
As has become customary for recent events, the
Ultimate Fighting Championship
will stream live preliminary
bouts online from Saturday’s UFC
Sherdog.com reported Tuesday morning that the promotion would
stream the fights exclusively on video-sharing website YouTube.
However, an afternoon tweet from the UFC’s Twitter account stated
that social networking site Facebook will host the June 11
undercard stream as usual.
The UFC’s official YouTube channel still displays a page set up to
stream the bouts Saturday, suggesting that both sites will
carry the fights simultaneously.
Five preliminary contests are scheduled to stream online,
immediately preceding the Spike TV “UFC Prelims Live” special which
leads into the event’s pay-per-view broadcast. The stream will see
Ring take on James Head in
a middleweight affair, while Dustin
Poirier toes the line against Jason Young
at featherweight. Also scheduled at 145 pounds is a battle between
Omigawa and Darren
Elkins. Additionally, Joey
Beltran will face Aaron Rosa at
heavyweight, while Krzysztof
Soszynski locks horns with late replacement Mike
Massenzio at 205 pounds.
Headlined by a crucial heavyweight clash between Junior dos
Santos and Shane
Carwin, UFC 131 will emanate from Rogers Arena in Vancouver,
British Columbia, Canada.
