'Countdown' to UFC 162 full videos replay for 'Silva vs Weidman' on FUEL TV

We're just days away from UFC 162, which takes place this upcoming Saturday night (July 6, 2013) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, which means that its time to check out the "Countdown" to "Silva vs. Weidman" preview special that aired on FUEL TV to promote the promotion's annual Fourth of July weekend mixed martial arts (MMA) celebration.

UFC 162, which takes place this weekend (Sat., July 6, 2013) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, will end a major mixed martial arts (MMA) drought for the world's leading promotion in extravagant style.

In addition to a high-profile main event Middleweight championship match between Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman, as well as the rest of the pay-per-view (PPV) main card and "Prelims" bouts on FX and Facebook.com, UFC 162 will be a fan-friendly week that is chock full of activities, capped off by two-day "EXPO" at Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

To help promote the blockbuster show -- as if it needed any more exposure -- the promotion teamed up with its broadcast partner, FUEL TV, for UFC 162 "Countdown," an hour-long preview special that provided a behind-the-scenes look as "Spider" and "All American" prepare for their anticipated five-round, 185-pound championship battle.

In addition to "Silva vs. Weidman," the "Countdown" to UFC 162 special also featured the struggling former Lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar, who is looking to breakthrough the Featherweight division at the expense of 145-pound standout Charles Oliveira.

Fellow Featherweights Cub Swanson and Dennis Siver even got a little "Countdown" love in advance of their pivotal divisional scrap.

If for whatever reason you don't feel like watching the video up above online right now, or simply would prefer to record it on a DVR at a later date, "Countdown" to UFC 162 will air on the following dates (all times ET):

  • Weds., July 3, at 3 a.m. and 1 p.m.
  • Thurs., July 4, at 1 a.m., 7 a.m. and 9 p.m.
  • Fri., July 5, at 2 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Sat., July 6, at 12 a.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Enjoy!
