The Ultimate Fighting Championship will once again utilize Facebook to broadcast live preliminary fights this Saturday, as four undercard bouts from UFC 132 will stream via the social networking site on July 2.

In addition to two bantamweight bouts -- Brian Bowles (Pictured) versus Takeya Mizugaki and Jeff Hougland versus Donny Walker -- the Facebook stream will also include a lightweight tilt between Anthony Njokuani and Andre Winner, and a middleweight scrap pitting Aaron Simpson against Brad Tavares.

The Facebook stream will immediately precede Spike TV’s “UFC Prelims Live” special, which airs one hour prior to the pay-per-view event and features Melvin Guillard against Shane Roller, and George Sotiropoulos versus Rafael dos Anjos.

UFC 132 will be headlined by the promotion’s first bantamweight title fight, as Dominick Cruz defends his belt against the only man to ever beat him, Urijah Faber. Also featured will be a potentially explosive middleweight affair between former Pride Fighting Championships star Wanderlei Silva and heavy-handed Chris Leben.
