UFC on FOX 5 broadcast schedule set with prelims on FX and Facebook

The UFC has announced the finalized broadcast scheduled for UFC on FOX 5 after the organization had to shuffle the card after injuries to Lavar Johnson and Michael Chiesa. 

With the cancelation of two of the fights on the preliminary card, there will only be one bout on the UFC Facebook page as Scott Jorgensen (13-6) will face John Albert (7-3) and both fighters will be looking to snap a two fight losing streak.

The prelimianry card will then move to FX with six fights and the headliner of this portion of the card will be a lightweight bout between Yves Edwards (41-18-1) and Jeremy Stephens (20-8), which was a bout that was originally scheduled to take place at UFC on FX 5.

Finally, the main card on FOX will begin at 8 p.m. ET with four fights and be headlined by Benson Henderson (16-2) defending the UFC lightweight title against number one contender Nate Diaz (16-7).
