UFC Live 3: Who's Fighting, How to Watch, and is it Worth Watching?

Picture-device-independent-bitmap-2_medium

In my time being a "hardcore" mixed martial arts fan, I've found three particular questions are asked by casual fans consistently. Who's fighting? How can I watch it? Is it worth watching? All three very valid questions, and seeing as here at Cageside Seats we have quite a bit of casual fans who regularly visit, being pro wrestling fans who dabble in MMA when it's worth their time and money, it's fitting that we regularly answer these questions before every major MMA event. With the variety of fighters in the UFC, it gets hard to keep up with some of your favorite fighter's schedules. On top of that, free preliminary fights are aired on Facebook, Spike TV, and now Ion...but not for every event. This is your one stop guide for the big three questions, now, let's get some answers.

Is UFC on Versus 3 Worth Watching:

First off, it's my belief that all free MMA events are worth watching.  Even if the quality is absolutely horrific, it can be an interesting, humorous, and entertaining ordeal.  The UFC is putting on a very solid card that looks to be just as exciting as former WEC events on the Versus channel (R.I.P.).  Although the main event is the only fight that holds a significant amount of "star power", each match up is aimed towards being exciting, with few, if any, mismatches.  

I could go on and on about how great the Sanchez vs. Kampmann match up is.  It is literally just that damn good.  I fully suspect the fight will consist of nothing less than fifteen minutes of balls to the wall action.  I expect similar out of nearly every fight on the card.  From top to bottom, this is a card worth watching, and if it had a major headliner, I'd buy it on PPV.  That's not bad at all considering we just came off the rather weak overseas card that was UFC 127.  I suggest watching at all costs, if you even just have to flip back and forth just to catch it for whatever reason, do it!  You'll surely catch something you won't regret taking the time to see.
