UFC officials confirmed the bout order for UFC 142, and as expected, four fights from the night's undercard will debut live on Fox-owned FX for the first time in UFC history.
The quartet of fights slated for FX broadcast feature lightweights Sam Stout (17-6-1) vs. Thiago Tavares (16-4-1), heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga (12-6) vs. Ednaldo Oliveira (13-0-1), welterweights Ricardo Funch (8-2) vs. Mike Pyle (21-8-1), and featherweights Yuri Alcantara (26-3) vs. Michihiro Omigawa (13-10-1).
A featherweight match-up between Felipe Arantes (13-4) and Antonio Carvalho (13-4) has been relegated to the UFC's Facebook undercard stream. Light heavyweights Fabio Maldonado (18-4) and Caio Magalhaes (5-0) were set to join the stream until a Maldonado injury scrapped the bout earlier this week.
The Facebook undercard can be viewed live by "liking" the UFC's Facebook page.
