The "Countdown" has begun!
"Countdown" to UFC 173 lit up the airwaves on Sunday night via FOX Sports 1 to help promote the upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for this Sat. night (May 24, 2014) inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
And this one is for all the marbles.
That's because Renan Pegado and T.J. Dillashaw will slug it out in the five-round championship main event for "Barao's" bantamweight belt. Check out an in-depth preview of their Memorial Day Weekend title scrap in the video above.
But there's more to the story. Much more.
In 205-pound action, Daniel Cormier tries to inch himself closer to a light heavyweight title shot at the expense of power-punching veteran and fellow title contender, Dan Henderson. Prior to that, Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger duke it out for a spot in the 170-pound pecking order. Check out their "Countdown" videos below.
