(Video from the UFC's Youtube channel)

Hopefully, you never ridiculed those with a Facebook account because you thought "social networking" was for prepubescent teens.  Facebook now features face-punching, as Heavy.com has announced that two more UFC 127 fights will stream live at 8:00 PM EST.  In addition to the second set of free fights airing on ION, this gives us four free appetizers before the main course of UFC 127 is served.

Anthony "The Hippo" Perosh was the 205-pound nut who stepped in to face heavyweight Mirko CroCop at UFC 110 with only two days notice, and still registered a valiant performance.  His reward was a 4-fight UFC contract, the first of which ignites against 10-6 Tom Blackledge, a member of the Wolfslair making his UFC debut.

The second match will feature highly heralded Chinese fighter Tie Quan Zhang (12-1), who suffered the first loss of his career versus Daniel Downes in his stateside debut at WEC 53.  Having spent most of his career overseas as a lightweight, Zhang will try his hand ten pounds south in the featherweight division.

He will face Jason Reinhardt, who coincidentally also suffered his first loss in the UFC against lightweight Joe Lauzon, and is also dropping a weight class.  Check out our interview with Jason Reinhardt here.
