In UFC 96, Quinton “The Rampage” Jackson goes up against Keith “The Dean of Mean” Jardine for the right to challenge current UFC Light Heavyweight champion Rashad Evans. Quinton Jackson is coming off a win and a tumultous personal problem, and is just regaining momentum in his hope of recapturing the Title Belt. The schedule and time of the fight is on Saturday, March 7, 2009 and the Undercards start at 10 PM ET. It will be shown live on PPV and the replay will be on Spike TV on a yet to be announced date.
How To Watch UFC 96 Live
Listed below are the few ways on where and how you can catch the event live.
1) Go to Yahoo Sports!, click on MMA, and they will be showing the preliminary bouts live for free. In order to watch the Main Event though, you will have to shell out $44.95 to get live streaming video in High Definition and fight archive viewing for 24 hours.
2) Contact your cable operator and get the Pay-Per-View fight. Be sure to invite your friends over so that you can share the cost.
3) In some countries like the Philippines, the fight will be shown for free in some channels, like Balls. The telecast is a little bit delayed, but it doesn’t matter because it is free.
4) Go to TV streaming site like justin.tv and mogulus. Sometimes, a lucky soul will be able to stream the fights live without the website taking their feeds down. Try your luck. I highly discourage this though because such streamed fights are low quality and always buffering. ANd you don’t really support UFC if you watch it for free.
5) Use Video streaming software like SopCast, all you have to do is to find the server setting and ports of the streamer via links on forums and the Internet.
6) Wait for the highlights on Youtube. I know this doesn’t count as watching it live, but sometimes, patience can give you a better experience of watching.
