UFC 128 – Almeida vs. Pyle and Pellegrino vs. Tibau to air live on Facebook.com

The UFC is thanking fans once again, this time featurong the welterweight bout between Mike Pyle and Ricardo Almeida and the lightweight bout between Kurt Pellegrino and Gleison Tibau live and free on the popular social networking site, Facebook

Almeida will look to continue to establish himself at welterweight despite losing to former long-time champion, Matt Hughes at UFC 117 over the summer, something that he has since rebounded from with a win over T.J. Grant at UFC 124 just last month. Pyle has rebounded in a big way from an early 2010 TKO defeat at the hands of Jake Ellenberger, pulling off a submission win over Jesse Lennox and a unanimous decision win over the then-unbeaten, John Hathaway.

Pellegrino seen his four fight winning streak come to an end falling short against George Sotiropoulos at UFC 116 in July. Ten of his fifteen wins have come via submissions, making him one of the most feared submission artists at 155. Tibau has won four of his last six fights, beating the likes of Caol Uno, Jeremy Stephens and Rich Clementi. He was last seen losing to Jim Millr on the judge’s scorecards at UFC Fight Night 22 in September.
