Sticking with recent tradition, all bouts from Saturday's UFC 131 event will air or stream in some form.

While the main card is slated for pay-per-view and two preliminary-card bouts air on a Spike TV "UFC Prelims" special, the remaining bouts now will be part of a free Facebook stream.

Facebook will stream five of the event's 12 fights.

UFC 131 takes place at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Heavyweights Junior Dos Santos and Shane Carwin meet in the PPV headliner.

The bouts now scheduled for Facebook include light heavyweights Krzysztof Soszynski (25-11-1 MMA, 5-2 UFC) vs. Mike Massenzio (12-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC), middleweights Nick Ring (11-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) vs. James Head (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), featherweights Dustin Poirier (9-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) vs. Jason Young (8-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC), heavyweights Joey Beltran (12-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) vs. Aaron Rosa (16-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC), and featherweights Darren Elkins (12-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) vs. Michihiro Omigawa (12-9-1 MMA, 0-3 UFC).

Ditto. I have a wedding to attend. There's a slight possibility that I'll be home to catch the PPV portion, though.

Going to make work suck even more.

I'm considering getting an iTouch or whatever to try and watch the fights at work, but Idk if it would work for a streaming video.

I'll be at the cottage all weekend. No internet/tv Maybe if we get drunk enough some fights will break out and I'll be able to watch some sort of fighting.
