UFC on Versus 5 Fight Card: All Eight Preliminary Bouts Stream on Facebook


UFC on Versus 5: Hardy vs. Lytle will have all eight of its preliminary fights streamed on Facebook, UFC officials announced recently.

The move to stream the undercard, which begins Sunday, Aug. 14, at 5:45 p.m. ET, gives UFC fans a chance to experience the entire card as if they were in arena themselves. Obviously, being at the arena in-person is an experience all unto itself, but seeing all the fights streamed live on Facebook is surely the next best thing.

While Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle fight in the main event, the rest of the card fills out well. Here is the full card.
