Just because “UFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson” will be jumping off halfway across the globe doesn’t mean stateside fans won’t be able to watch all of the card’s scraps live.
The event takes place Sunday, February 26th inside Saitama Super Arena in Japan in order to accommodate a live Saturday, February 25th 10PM ET/7PM PT pay-per-view start time in North America.
The UFC’s Facebook page will kick off the festivities by streaming the featherweight affair between Tiequan Zhang and Issei Tamura at 7:30PM ET/4:30PM PT. FX will then air four additional preliminary bouts live beginning at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
