The UFC is continuing on with their Facebook.com preliminary card airings with this Thursday's UFC on Versus 3 card, as MMAJunkie.com reports that two bouts will be made available on the social networking site.

By "liking" the UFC's page at Facebook.com/UFC, fans will have access to the bout between lightweights Joe Stevenson and Danny Castillo, as well as the light heavyweight bout between Steve Cantwell and Cyrille Diabate.

The night's main card features a headlining bout between Martin Kampmann and Diego Sanchez, as well as former Bantamweight Champion Brian Bowles in action against Damacio Page and middleweights C.B. Dollaway and Mark Munoz.

This will be the fourth straight event for the UFC that they have run fights on Facebook, having previously done so for UFC Fight for the Troops 2, UFC 126 and UFC 127.

Penick's Analysis: As I've always said, free fights are always welcome, and the UFC continues to do an excellent job in making them available to fans that want to see them. Stevenson-Castillo and Cantwell-Diabate should both be exciting fights, though it's interesting that Rousimar Palhares went from headlining a Fight Night to being on the unaired prelims with his bout against Dave Branch.
