UFC 138 Preview
First off, I believe the above poster is fan made. Whether or not it is, I really like it. The UFC’s posters are generally shit and they should just depend on fans to make a ton of cool posters. I know that would likely be a logistical nightmare, but fuck it. That’s right, I say fuck it.
In regards to today’s free UFC 138 card, I kinda like it. I’m a huge MMA dork and generally don’t care who is fighting, so that’s a good thing. Some of these fights are pretty fun like Leben vs. Munoz and Pickett vs. Barao, while it will be good to see Thiago Alves back in action. Perosh vs. Diabate will also be a big styles clash that could end up being a great fight.
Okay, in regards to watching the event: the Facebook fights begin right now. Like, immediately. 1:40 PM EST/12:40 PM CST, so get ready to enjoy those. The main event starts at 4:00 PM EST/3:00 PM CST, but it will air on tape delay in the U.S. at 8:00 PM EST/7:00 PM CST. Kinda lame, since it would be nice to view it life, but I guess that’s just the hand we’ve been dealt. FREE UFC! Just enjoy it!
