With Christmas just weeks away, the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion has decided to continue their generous ways by offering two free preliminary bouts on UFC.com to kick-off Saturday’s “UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck 2″ pay-per-view broadcast.
Spike TV typically provides their highly popular “UFC Prelims” special to help ignite last-minute PPV buys, but the “2010 Spike Video Game Awards” forced the Octagon’s official website to step up to plate.
On Saturday, UFC.com will provide a live stream of Joe Doerksen’s middleweight scrap with Dan Miller, as well as the lightweight battle between Dustin Hazelett and Mark Bocek beginning at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
The hour-long lead-in marks the first time UFC.com has offered live streams for any preliminary card fights. There will be no restrictions, so fans worldwide will be able to enjoy the freebie fights.
UFC 124 will be jumping off inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Champion Georges St-Pierre puts his welterweight hardware on the line against Josh Koscheck in the show’s featured contest.
Here is the revised agenda for the UFC’s end of the year extravaganza:
Pat Audinwood vs. John Makdessi
Ricardo Almeida vs. TJ Grant
Matt Riddle vs. Sean Pierson
Jesse Bongfeldt vs. Rafael Natal
