countdown 143

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns with its "Countdown" preview show for UFC 143: "Diaz vs. Condit," featuring a behind-the-scenes look as former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz prepares to fight fellow division number one contender Carlos Condit for the Interim title on Saturday night (Feb. 4, 2012) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tune in TONIGHT (Tues., Jan. 31, 2012) at 9 p.m. ET on FUEL TV and talk, complain, whine, boast -- whatever it is you do -- about the program in the comments section below.

"Countdown" to UFC 143 will also feature a closer look at the 170-pound match up between former division number one contender Josh Koscheck and venerable up-and-comer Mike Pierce.

"Diaz vs. Condit" was booked after UFC welterweight champion George St. Pierre suffered a devastating knee injury, one that was severe enough to require surgery and several months of rehab.
