Two preliminary contests from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 24 will stream live and free of charge on social networking website Facebook, the promotion announced Wednesday.

Popular “Ultimate Fighter 12” participant Alex Caceres will take on World Extreme Cagefighting import Mackens Semerzier at 145 pounds, while H.I.T. Squad product Jon Madsen meets 12-year veteran Mike Russow in a heavyweight tilt. As with previous streams from the organization, fights will be made available to Facebook users who have “liked” the UFC fan page.

UFC Fight Night 24, which goes down March 26 at KeyArena in Seattle, will be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between blue-chip prospect Phil Davis and Pride Fighting Championships veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Known to “TUF” fans as “Bruce Leroy,” Caceres was defeated by eventual runner-up Michael Johnson during the most recent season of the reality show. The 22-year-old was slated to make his official Octagon debut against Nam Phan in December, but injury forced Caceres to withdraw from the contest.

Semerzier (Pictured) looks to bounce back from three consecutive defeats in his UFC debut. The 30-year-old went 0-3 in 2010, ending his WEC career with losses to Deividas Taurosevicius, Javier Vazquez and Cub Swanson.

A powerful wrestler, Madsen has yet to taste defeat in his pro career. The 31-year-old has posted a 4-0 record inside the Octagon following a stint on “TUF 10.” Most recently, Madsen bulldozed Gilbert Yvel at UFC 121 in October, knocking out the Pride veteran in less than two minutes.

Russow began his professional career in 1998, earning a victory in his first MMA appearance. It would take eight years for the Chicago police officer to step back into the cage, but Russow has been beaten only once since his 2006 return. Most recently, Russow knocked out the highly touted Todd Duffee with a heavy right hand in the third round of their UFC 114 contest last May.
