The Ultimate Fighting Championship will once again use Facebook to stream live fights this Sunday, as the eight-bout undercard of UFC Live 5 “Hardy vs. Lytle” will be available for viewing on the social networking site.

The Facebook stream is set to begin at 5:45 p.m. ET / 2:45 p.m. PT, immediately preceding the evening’s main card, which airs live on cable network Versus.

Headlined by a welterweight scrap pitting durable veteran Chris Lytle against heavy-handed Brit Dan Hardy, UFC Live 5 will emanate from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. The event marks the UFC’s inaugural trip to Wisconsin and will also feature a pair of lightweight scraps, as Benson Henderson and Donald Cerrone meet Jim Miller and Charles Oliveira, respectively.

Highlighted by a bantamweight confrontation between Joseph Benavidez (Pictured) and Eddie Wineland, the Facebook stream will showcase eight bouts in total. The stream will also feature a pair of middleweight tilts, as Jared Hamman meets C.B. Dollaway and Ed Herman clashes with Kyle Noke.

Additionally, lightweights Cole Miller and Jacob Volkmann will lock horns with T.J. O’Brien and Danny Castillo, respectively. Rounding out the preliminary draw will be a light heavyweight scrap between Karlos Vemola and Ronny Markes, a featherweight duel between Alex Caceres and Jim Hettes and a bantamweight showdown between Edwin Figueroa and Jason Reinhardt.
