I know that most of you will be a in a food coma this weekend and you likely won’t want to leave the couch. So skip the parades and the football and watch people punch each other in the face. And you won’t even have to get out of your pajamas to do it.
Yes folks, this Saturday, November 28, 2015, there is a UFC event taking place LIVE from Seoul, South Korea. But this isn’t a regular UFC card that kicks off around dinner time and runs until the wee hours of the morning. This is one of the rare cards that you can watch from the couch while eating your breakfast.
At the top of the card we have Benson Henderson vs. Jorge Masvidal, preceded by Dong Hyun Kim vs. Dominic Waters in the co-main slot. Rounding out the main card we have Yoshihiro “Sexyama” Akiyama vs. Alberto Mina and Doo Ho Choi vs. Sam Sicilia. Unbelievably, there’s another guy named Dong Hyun Kim fighting on the same card, but on the prelims. It’s not the same guy fighting twice.
UFC Fight Night 79: Henderson vs. Masvidal starts eeeaaarrrlllyyy with the Fight Pass prelims kicking off at 5 AM ET (3 AM PT) followed by the main card at 8 AM ET (5 AM ET). The whole thing will be over by lunch, just in time for you to take an afternoon nap.
Joe Rogan has stated that he will be doing a live fight companion podcast stream with Brendan Schaub and Eddie Bravo on the Joe Rogan Experience YouTube page. Load it up on your phone, plug in the headphones and listen to these three shoot the shit while watching some facepunching.
