The top post says McDonald v Pace, Pace pulled out of this fight 8 days ago and was replaced by Edwin Figueroa.

I'm pleased there id mor fights on Facebook, Im surprised that Simpson/Miranda has been over looked.

I'm not excited about the news considering the streams never seem to work for me. But at the same time, I'm very pleased to see they are trying to give the fans more free fights.

We should be grateful to get so many fights for free like this. It is really something.

The facebook streams are really poor, I would much rather they added more to tv. Cool that we can see the extra fights though.

Honestly, every time I've watch them I've had perfect, clear streams. The volume is just a little too low.

same here. it irritates me. when they first released the news i thought it was pretty cool. I tried to watch the fights and then i no longer thought it was pretty cool.

The last few times, the Facebook streams have worked great for me. The first few, the streams were pure crap.

Regardless, this is awesome. Free fights are always a plus.

I've never had a problem with the streams. I had to work a few saturdays and watch the facebook streams, and they worked beautifully.

And you do have to love free fights. However, if Spike TV is doing a huge marathon before UFN 24, why not just do like a two hour prelims special (since they are streaming five fights), then two hours for the main card? That would get better ratings and hold more interest than old UFC Unleashed episodes or old UFN's or whatever they are doing.

Maybe simulcast the FB stream for fans outside of the US/Canada/wherever they don't get Spike TV.

I am shocked the Nick Lentz bout isn't going to be broadcast live at all. Hopefully his bout will be broadcast sometime during the PPV. Nick hasn't lost in his last 13 bouts and he has picked off Tyson Griffin, Andre Winner, Rob Emerson, Tractor Oliveira, Drew Fickett and also has a draw with Thiago Tavares. All that and he isn't even on the FB Stream?

They're actually going to show a 15 minute special, on Facebook, about the proper way to boil water instead of showing the Lentz/Lowe fight.

See how happy you are when you get all excited to watch some fights and you get 5 minutes of a static image followed by,"your video will be available shortly" and then for the final act you get the notice that this video is no longer available. I'll try to watch them again and when it doesn't work I'll come back here and cry to anyone who will listen Got to love America where this can be concidered an actual problem

I'm thinking its your computer or internet commection cause they have been great for me. If thats the case its on you not the UFC. there used to be a day that was the pretty much only way you could watch MMA.

I think it's cool that they keep making more fights available so that the fans are not only able to enjoy more MMA, but also catch some fighters you may not normally be able to see. The only unfortunate thing is that it's on facebook and the streaming doesn't always cooperate.

Couldn't agree more with you on Lentz. The times I've seen him fight, it's a snooze-fest.

It might be my computer(its abbout 6 years old) but I've heard the same complaint from a lot of people so I think it's probably a bandwitdth issue as well. In any case I don't blame the UFC or Facebook I just love MMA and hate missing fights. Plus this is an internet forum and we're MMA fans, compianing about trivial things is what we do best!
