Junie Browning gets new opponent for MMA Fight Pit bout

TUF 8 alum Junie Browning was set to face Lenny Lovato at this weekend’s inaugural event from the MMA Fight Pit Promotion.  However, Lovato has been forced to withdraw from the bout with a broken hand, which he suffered during training.  Stepping in as Browning’s new opponent at “Genesis” will be Jacob Clark.  A native New Mexican, Clark will fight Browning on the main card of the Albuquerque-based event, which airs live on pay-per-view.  Clark (7-3) will look to rebound from back-to-back losses after starting his career 7-1.

Facebook to stream entire UFC Live 5 preliminary card

It’s become somewhat of a given, but the UFC will once again stream the unaired preliminary fights from its event.  This time it will be eight fights from Sunday’s UFC Live 5 event.  The live Facebook stream begins at 5:45 p.m. ET and marks the eighth consecutive event for which the promotion has made the entire lineup available for live viewing.
