UFC Pay-Per-View Launching on Xbox Live in December

If you like watching people faces get smashed in but don't want all the sweaty effort of pushing buttons, then your prayers have been answered. After announcing it back at E3, Microsoft's finally set a date for when you'll be able to watch UFC via Xbox Live.

UFC on Xbox Live launches on Dec. 1. UFC 140 on Saturday Dec. 10 will be the first live pay-per-view event that you'll be able to order on Xbox Live. The match-ups in UFC 140 pit light heavyweights Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida against each other along with a feature bout between ex-heavyweight champs Frank Mir and Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira. Watching the the MMA promotion's fights on Xbox 360 will let you and your XBL friends predict winners, with the results of the pseudo-wagering kept on a leaderboard. The PPVs will stream in 720 and you'll be able to navigate through the content with Kinect, if you like actually moving your arms.
