The UFC will return to Facebook yet again for Thursday's UFC Live 3 "Sanchez vs. Kampmann" with two preliminary bouts.

Both the lightweight tilt between former UFC lightweight title contender Joe Stevenson and Danny Castillo, as well as former WEC light heavyweight champion Steve Cantwell battling Cyrille Diabate will air live on Facebook at 8.pm. ET, an hour before the live televised card starts on Versus.

MMAJunkie.com was the first to report the news.

The UFC's Facebook page has recently been used to stream additional undercard bouts, beginning with the UFC's Jan. 22 "Fight for the Troops 2" card, and continuing with UFC 126 and 127.

UFC Live 3 originates from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., headlined by the eponymous welterweight clash between Martin Kampmann and Diego Sanchez.
