UFC 127 is getting double treatment from UFC. It will not only just stream two of its prelims on Facebook, but fans will also see it on ION TV.

The biggest MMA organization, , is expanding to several new outlets to deliver more fights to its loyal supporters.

UFC recently teamed up with Spike TV and to stream 12 UFC Prelims Live events. Two UFC 127 fights will stream on . These fights are the ones involving Anthony Perosh versus Tom Blackledge and Jason Reinhardt versus Tiequan Zhang. But the surprise doesn’t end there, when Spike TV didn’t get the opportunity to air prelim fights from UFC 125, UFC big boss, turned to broadcast network to air three bouts. Also, for UFC 127, Ion will again air three fights on their network.

ION will be airing three UFC 127 preliminary bouts leading up to the pay-per-view broadcast. The fights include: Light heavyweight James Te Huna will fight , “Ultimate Fighter Season 9″ winner Ross Pearson battles  Spencer Fisher at lightweight, and Nick Ring locks horns with Riki Fukuda in a middleweight contest.
