Default Tommy Speer and Kyle Watson

UFC vets Kyle Watson (13-7) and Tommy Speer (19-5) are featured in the headlining contests of this weekend's Cage Warriors Fight Night 3 event, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) will feature a live stream of the evening's main-card action.

Cage Warriors Fight Night 3 takes place Saturday The Habtoor Grand Hotel Convention Center & Spa in Beirut, Lebanon. The stream kicks off at 2 p.m. ET.

Watson meets Juha-Pekka Vainikainen (18-5-1) in the night's lightweight main event, and Speer faces Mats Nilsson (7-1-1) in a middleweight contest.

Watson, a cast member on "The Ultimate Fighter 12," defeated Sako Chivitchyan at the show's live finale, but the UFC released him following a UFC 129 loss to John Makdessi. Vainikainen, a Finnish fighter, enters the fight undefeated (7-0-1) in his past eight fights.

Speer (19-5) was was released from the UFC following a runner-up finish to Mac Danzig on "The Ultimate Fighter 6" and a subsequent defeat to Anthony Johnson. But he's since rebounded with an 8-2 run that he'll bring into his middleweight fight with Nilsson, a Swedish competitor and promotional newcomer who's riding a three-fight win streak.

Also slated for the card are two opening-round matchups from the organization's eight-man middleweight tournament with Victor Cheng (7-2) vs. Matt Gabel (7-2) and Gareth Joseph (9-4) vs. Faycal Hussin (6-2). The winners advance to the semifinals on April 12.

Rounding out the main card are welterweights Ben Alloway (10-3) vs. Mauro Chimento (14-8), featherweights Matteus Lahdesmaki (11-7-3) vs. Graham Turner (18-6), and welterweights John Donnelly (7-4) vs. Domingos Mestre (8-4).
