Yamamoto vs. Johnson to Air on Facebook

UFC® TO STREAM LIVE SPORTING EVENT ON FACEBOOK® THIS SATURDAY
 
BROADCAST-QUALITY STREAM WILL FEATURE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED CLASH BETWEEN DEMETRIOUS ‘MIGHTY MOUSE’ JOHNSON AND KID YAMAMOTO
In a move that further cements it as one of the most savvy social media organizations in all of professional sports, the Ultimate Fighting Championship® announced plans to stream a broadcast-quality live sporting event on Facebook this Saturday.

In this exciting broadcast taking place on Feb. 5 at 8:25 p.m. ET/5:25 p.m. PT, sports fans are invited to watch the highly-anticipated UFC bantamweight clash between Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and Japanese sensation Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto for free at www.facebook.com/ufc.

By simply “liking” the UFC Facebook Page, fans will gain access to the live broadcast of the fight from the sold out Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, home to Saturday’s UFC® 126: SILVA vs. BELFORT Pay-Per-View event.

This ground-breaking technology was introduced by UFC at the Fight for the Troops 2 event on Jan. 22. Thanks to tremendous feedback from fans and increased traffic to the UFC Facebook Page, UFC now takes broadcasting live on Facebook to a new level.

“We understand the power of social media,” UFC President Dana White, who boasts one of the most significant social media followings in all of sports, said. “Fans all over the world have been telling me that they want to see this fight! You got it. We are going to broadcasting live on Facebook, giving UFC fans all over the world access to a great fight between Kid Yamamoto and Demetrious Johnson. Plus, we’re continuing to show that we are the best at using social media to attract new fans.”
