ufc 88 tickets
"UFC Countdown" to the major "Breakthrough" pay-per-view (PPV) event next weekend will debut on Spike TV on Wednesday, September 3 at 11 p.m. ET.

The hour-long special presentation will provide a glimpse into the preparation and training camps of the fighters set to headline the first-ever UFC show to hit Atlanta, Ga.

Here’s the official description:

"Watch UFC legend Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell in training while he prepares to face undefeated light heavyweight contender Rashad ‘Sugar’ Evans. See how he came back from the terrible hamstring injury that originally put this match on hold. Go behind-the-scenes with Rashad Evans as he gets ready to take on his most dangerous challenge in hopes of getting a title shot."

It’s also likely that the program will cover the participants in the co-featured bout of the evening between Rich Franklin and Matt Hammil. "Ace" will return to the light heavyweight class to determine whether or not he can make a run in the jam-packed 205-pound division.

UFC 88: "Breakthrough" is set to air live from the Philips Arena on pay-per-view (PPV) at 10 p.m. ET on August 9. MMAmania.com will provide all the coverage you can handle, including LIVE blow-by-blow UFC 88 results of the main card action on fight night and much more.

Come check us out.

For those who miss the "Countdown" premier it will re-air on Thursday, September 4 at 11 p.m. ET and Saturday, September 6 at 6 p.m. ET. To check out the complete UFC 88 fight card click here.
