Just in time for the most attended mixed martial arts event in North American history, UFC 129: "St. Pierre vs. Shields," the world's largest combat sports promotion will debut its own show, "UFC Central."

Hosted by former WEC announcer Todd Harris and sports reporter Molly Qerim, as well as UFC fighters Kenny Florian and Stephan Bonnar, the news and analysis show will air tonight at 8 p.m. ET for free exclusively on UFC.TV.

Harris will run the show, while Florian and Bonnar impart their knowledge to provide UFC 129 fight breakdowns and Qerim will give backstage reports throughout the telecast.

Once the pay-per-view broadcast begins, "UFC Central" will only be available exclusively to those who ordered the event on UFC.TV. Those lucky fans will be subject to live interviews with fighters, as well as commentary from the show's analysts.

More on "UFC Central," including Dana White's thoughts after the jump.

"UFC Central" will be offered as a seventh video feed and fifth audio feed, leveraging UFC.TV's multi-camera view and multi-audio feed experience. During the live event, fans will have the option inside of UFC.TV to select "UFC Central" as the main broadcast. Or, they can drag and drop it into picture-in-picture or quad view so that "UFC Central" can be watched and/or listened to alongside the broadcast of the main fight card.

Immediately following the live broadcast, "UFC Central" will be once again offered for free at UFC.TV with post-fight analysis from Harris, Florian and Bonnar, among others.

UFC President Dana White is very enthusiastic about the new show.

"We are really excited for the debut of UFC Central this Saturday during the biggest weekend in the history of the sport. The UFC.TV experience allows us to test many different types of programming options, such as UFC Central, with the end goal of making for a better fan experience. Nothing will get you closer to the full UFC event experience."

Enjoy, Maniacs.
