Two UFC on Versus 3 Prelims Headed to Facebook Thursday Night


Mark Zuckerberg must be a UFC fan, or he’s quickly becoming one.

The UFC will once again head back to Facebook for the UFC on Versus 3 show airing this Thursday night from Louisville, KY with two preliminary fights shown on the social networking giant.

A lightweight bout between former WEC stand-out Danny Castillo and former “Ultimate Fighter” winner Joe Stevenson highlights the card, kicking off at 8pm ET, an hour before the live broadcast picks up on Versus.

The other bout featured will showcase former WEC champion Steve Cantwell finally return to action after an injury plagued 2010 to face striker Cyrille Diabate in a light heavyweight match-up.

The UFC and Facebook have become fast friends lately with the MMA promotion putting several fights on there recently.

To watch the fights on Facebook, fans must go to the UFC’s fan page and click “like” and then go to live video and wait for the fights to start on Thursday night.
