Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is finally back!
And once again the world's leading mixed martial arts (MMA) league will air an entire fight card TODAY (April 14, 2012), this time with UFC on FUEL TV 2: "Gustafsson vs. Silva," which will begin around 12:30 p.m. ET with the Featherweight fight between Jason Young against Eric Wisely that will air LIVE on Facebook, today's home for the entire UFC on FUEL TV 2 "Prelims" card.
Why such an early start time? Because UFC on FUEL TV 2 takes place from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, which is several hours ahead on the world clock.
Following the FUEL TV 2 "Prelims" on Facebook, fans can switch over to the FUEL TV network for the main card, headlined by a Light Heavyweight battle between Sweden's Alexander Gustafsson, taking on Brazilian bomber Thiago Silva, who returns from his steroid suspension to replace the injured Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
UFC on FUEL TV begins promptly at 3 p.m. ET this afternoon. You can call up your local cable and/or satellite provider or visit them online to find out which channel you should be tuning in to for tonight's mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza. You can even check if it's available to watch on your mobile device through the Android Market.
