Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will once again air an entire fight card TODAY (April 6, 2013), this time with UFC on FUEL TV 9, which will begin around 11 a.m. ET with a Welterweight fight between Papy Abedi an Besam Yousef that will air LIVE on Facebook.com, today's home for the entire mixed martial arts (MMA) event's "Prelims" card.
Why such an early start time? Because UFC on FUEL TV 9 takes place from Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, which is several hours ahead on the world clock.
Following the FUEL TV 9 "Prelims" on Facebook, fans can switch over to the FUEL TV network for the main card, which is headlined by a re-worked, three-round 205-pound bout between former Strikeforce and DREAM champion, Gegard Mousasi, making his Octagon debut against late-replacement Ilir Latifi, who stepped up on super short notice when his training partner, Alexander Gustafsson, was ruled out because of a cut to his eye.
UFC on FUEL TV 9 begins promptly at 2 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 MMA extravaganza. You can even check if it's available to watch on your mobile device through the Android Market.
And always remember the nearest UFC-friendly bar in your area, which you can identify right here.
