Dana White listens to UG, adds additional fights to Facebook prelims
In a thread started yesterday on the Underground Forum, members of the site rallied to petition UFC President Dana White to air more preliminary fights from this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 24 in Seattle, WA. The promotion had previously announced that two bouts would indeed broadcast for free on Facebook.
Just this morning, Dana White himself posted a thread confirming the report of two free bouts on Facebook.

Members of the site continued their campaign for additional bouts to be broadcast on both threads. Just this afternoon, the thread was updated by a UFC employee that three more additional bouts would broadcast on Facebook.

Seems as though this time through the magic of the internet and social media, the fans have reached Dana White and he has responded, answering their requests and bringing more free fights to the masses.
