The UFC is expanding their live streaming of the preliminary fights for UFC 131, and now it’s YouTube that’s getting in on the business.

YouTube is getting into the fight business as well.

Just hours after the announcement that the UFC would be broadcasting the UFC 131 prelims live on Facebook, the promotion will now also showcase the fights on YouTube as well.

A page has already been set up for the UFC 131 prelims on YouTube, with a note stating to return in 4 days when the show begins.

YouTube has been doing more and more live streaming of events including the popular concert Coachella last month.

The UFC 131 prelims will broadcast starting at 6pm ET on Saturday night and will feature 5 fights from the undercard in Vancouver.

The fights that will be shown on the UFC 131 Facebook stream include Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Mike Massenzio, Nick Ring vs. James Head, Dustin Poirier vs. Jason Young, Joey Beltran vs. Aaron Rosa and Michihiro Omigawa vs. Darren Elkins.
