Airing preliminary fights is all the rage with the major MMA promotions these days, and the leaders of the movement, the UFC, are at it again for this Saturday night’s UFC 126 event.

At 8pm Eastern Time on Saturday night fans who ‘like’ the UFC’s official Facebook page can watch the debut of ‘Kid’ Yamamato against promising bantamweight fighter Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson streaming live.

Then at 9pm ET the action moves to Spike TV for their hour long prelim show which features two more quality bouts as Chad Mendes takes on Michihiro Omigawa, and Donald Cerrone goes toe-to-toe with Paul Kelly.

That’s a great set of fights, and yet it’s just an appetizer for the main card on pay-per-view at 10pm ET headlined by Anderson Silva Vs Vitor Belfort along with a terrific supporting cast.

All in all, with this level of access to fights it truly is a great time to be an MMA fan.  Enjoy!
