Where do I watch UFC 102 in live streaming online for free?
If you have the money, you can watch it LIVE via pay-per-view on Saturday, August 29, 2009 7pm PT / 10pm ET through Yahoo! Sports or at the UFC 102 web site. Charge starts at $44.95.
Balls Channel will be broadcasting UFC 101 LIVE on Sunday, August 30 at 10:00 AM. Studio 23 will have a REPLAY at 10:30 PM. But our Sky Cable here don’t have that channel so I looked for sites that offer free UFC 102 live online streaming.
UFC 102: Couture vs Nogueira has already started. These are the FREE online streaming videos. Just select from any of them. I suggest that you use low quality resolution if you have a slow internet connection. If they won’t play due to the sheer number of users watching the UFC 101 streaming videos, don’t worry, I’ll constantly update this and look for ONLINE ones for your viewing pleasure. Please bear with me.
1st UPDATE: Brando Vera’s superior Muay Thai skills was enough to keep Krzysztof Soszynski at bay. He wins via Unanimous decision!
2nd UPDATE: This is laughable. Nate Marquardt caught Demian Maia with a right hook and the game’s over in 21 seconds.
3rd UPDATE: Leading into the 3rd round, the fight is virtually even until Jake Rosholt caught Chris Leben with a head-arm choke.
4th UPDATE: Another ho-hum fight. Thiago Silva just overpowered Keith Jardine from the get go. Silva wins via KO in just 95 seconds.
FINAL UPDATE: It was a good fight for Randy Couture. But I think its time for him to retire for good. No shame in this fight though. At age 46, he was able to pull off a competitive fight against a younger and larger Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Minotauro wins via Unanimous Decision.
That’s it folks. If you missed the show LIVE, you can still watch the UFC 102 replay.
