Carbone's is happy to be showing the next couple of UFC fights for free! As usual, in Carbone's style, we will have a drink minimum, but we've got to pay those pay-per-view fees somehow. We were the first to show boxing and UFC fights, back when they were popular, and pinball before there was a Monterey League. So this is our way of saying thank you for your support all these years. But don't wait around, because this free stuff won't continue on for long. Check at the bar for details, 214 Lighthouse Avenue in New Monterey.
