'Countdown' to UFC 153 full video for 'Silva vs Bonnar' on FUEL TV

Miss UFC 153 'Countdown' to the Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar-led pay-per-view (PPV), which debuted tonight (Oct. 9, 2012) on FUEL TV? Fear not ... we have the full UFC 153 'Countdown' video replay for your viewing pleasure.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) aired its traditional "Countdown" preview show for UFC 153: "Silva vs. Bonnar" on FUEL TV tonight (Oct. 9, 2012), featuring a behind-the-scenes look as current Middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, prepares to return to the Light Heavyweight division for a non-title, "fun" fight against Stephan Bonnar.

It's a surprise, short-notice Band-Aid for the UFC 153 main event that will take place from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this Saturday night (Oct. 13, 2012), because the original headliner -- Jose Aldo vs. Eric Koch (and then Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar) -- was scratched.

To check out immediate reactions to the hour-long special be sure to check out our live UFC 153 "Countdown" discussion thread right here.

This edition of "Countdown" didn't actually spend too much time on Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar. The three-round 205-pound showdown got a healthy does of exposure, but considerable time was also spent on the other pay-per-view (PPV) main card bouts.

Indeed, the co-main event between Glover Teixeira vs. Fabio Maldonado received quite a bit of focus, particularly Teixeira's struggles to make his big league debut inside the Octagon.

In addition, we got a good look into the recovery of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira as he returns from a broken wing to battle Dave Herman, as well as Jon Fitch's quest to return to the top of the division at the expense of perhaps its brightest prospect, Erick Silva.

Enjoy.
