UFC FIGHT PASS, the world’s leading streaming service for combat sports, today announced James Krause’s Fighting Alliance Championship (FAC) will be streamed live and exclusively on FIGHT PASS this Sunday, February 6, at 3:00 p.m. ET / 12:00 p.m. PT from Independence, Mo. 

UFC President Dana White has chosen Sunday’s event, FAC 12, to host a new episode of Dana White: Lookin’ For A Fight, the entertaining, unpredictable UFCÒ talent-scouting series White hosts with former UFC Hall of Famer Matt Serra and MMA vet Din Thomas.

White will be sitting cage side at FAC 12 looking for potential UFC prospects and will be joined by special guests The Nelk Boys, who will weigh in on which fighter deserves an opportunity. The Nelk Boys will offer the fighter a brand sponsorship from their merchandise line Full Send. Fans will have the opportunity to take part in this unique telecast by voting for their favorite fighters from FAC 12 through The Nelk Boys and UFC social media. The episode of Dana White’s Lookin’ For A Fight featuring FAC 12 will be available in the coming weeks.

“The Nelk Boys will come down to Kansas City where this fight is happening, and they will actually pick their own fighter,” said UFC President Dana White. “They’ll sign him, and he’ll be sponsored by Nelk, so it’ll be their guy. Fans can go on The Nelk Boys or UFC social media and tell them who they should pick.”

“It’s going to be a great opportunity for the fighter,” said Kyle Forgeard, Co-Founder, The Nelk Boys. “They’re going to have a cult following rooting for them at every fight.”

The Nelk Boys is an entertainment brand founded by Kyle Forgeard and Jesse Sebastiani, Canadian YouTube influencers who have become social media sensations.
