Saturday night's alright for fighting.

Not only is it alright, it's damn near all night, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will air the entire UFC 129: "St. Pierre vs. Shields" fight card on April 30, 2011, beginning at 6 p.m. ET with a live video stream on Facebook.

For those of you who are still too high and mighty to create a Facebook profile or just happen to reside on the other end of the culture warp, you can still catch a handful of preliminary fights on cable television with the Spike TV "Prelims" starting at 8 p.m. ET.

But Nostradumbass, I'm tethered to my wife/kids/random obligation until the UFC 129 pay-per-view-start time of 9 p.m. ET. What's a Maniac to do?

MMAmania.com to the rescue.
