The UFC has upped the ante once again for the historic UFC 129 event in Toronto by airing all five preliminary fights on Facebook on April 30.

The promotion announced the news late Wednesday evening.

The five fights airing on Facebook include Daniel Roberts vs. Claude Patrick, Ivan Menjivar vs. Charlie Valencia, Jason MacDonald vs. Ryan Jensen, John Makdessi vs. Kyle Watson and Yves Jabouin vs. Pablo Garza.

Along with the pay-per-view broadcast kicking off at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and the Spike TV preliminary fights kicking off at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, every single fight from UFC 129 will air live in some broadcast form.

The Facebook stream kicks off at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.

To watch the Facebook fights fans need to have a Facebook page, then go to the UFC’s official Facebook page and click ‘like,’ then click on the live video feed and the fights will stream from there.
