T-minus four days and "counting..."
Countdown to UFC 164 lit up the airwaves last night on its new home over at FOX Sports 1, to help promote the upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for this Saturday night (Aug. 31, 2013) at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
And it's a biggie.
"Henderson vs. Pettis 2" features a rematch from the days of World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), as current 155-pound kingpin Ben Henderson tries to get one back from Anthony Pettis, while "Showtime" looks to repeat history and leave with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight title.
UFC 164 also features a significant co-headlining bout at 265 pounds as former UFC Heavyweight Champions Frank Mir vs. Josh Barnett go to war to see which one of these grizzled veterans is still a legitimate division contender and who is an old-school pretender.
