The UFC will stream the TUF 13 prelims live on Facebook

This is a guest post by Josh Nason

Using social media to the fullest, the UFC announced Friday night on Twitter that all six preliminary fights for this Saturday's The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale will stream on Facebook.

The preliminary card kicks off at 6:30 pm ET/3:30 pm PT at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV, headlined by Anthony Pettis vs. Clay Guida and Ramsey Nijem vs. Tony Ferguson in the TUF 13 finale bout.

The Facebook fights that fans will see:

- Jeremy Stephens vs. Danny Downes
- Josh Grispi vs. George Roop
- Ryan McGillivray vs. Shamar Bailey
- Clay Harvison vs. Justin Edwards
- Scott Jorgensen vs. Ken Stone
- Reuben Duran vs. Francisco Rivera

Stephens is coming off a 3rd round KO of Marcus Davis at January's UFC 125, while Downes will make his UFC debut after submitting Tory Bogguess at a regional event in May.

An interesting name on the undercard is Jorgensen, who was last seen in December in a decision loss to Dominic Cruz for the WEC (now UFC) Bantamweight title. Before that loss, Jorgensen had won five straight WEC fights. He will face Stone, who was famously knocked out by Eddie Wineland on that same event with a vicious slam.

McGillivray, Bailey, Harvison and Edwards were all participants on this season of TUF, contributing to 13 total fighters that will be making their UFC debuts Saturday.
