After a rare weekend off, 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 (Feb. 16, 2013), this time with UFC on FUEL TV 7: "Barao vs. McDonald," which will begin around 12:00 p.m. ET with a Flyweight fight of Ulysses Gomez vs. Phil Harris that will air LIVE on Facebook, today's home for the entire UFC on FUEL TV 7 "Prelims" card.
Why such an early start time? Because UFC on FUEL TV 7 takes place from Wembley Arena in London, England, which is several hours ahead on the world clock.
Following the FUEL TV 7 "Prelims" on Facebook, fans can switch over to the FUEL TV network for the main card, headlined by a interim Bantamweight championship battle between titleholder Renan Barao and Michael McDonald, who will look to become the youngest champion in UFC history.
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.
