UFC Countdown 89 for 'Bisping vs. Leben' Spike TV debut tonight (Monday)

"UFC Countdown" to UFC 89: "Bisping vs. Leben" will debut on Spike TV tonight (Monday, October 13) at 11 p.m. ET to promote the upcoming show this weekend at The National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham, England, on October 18.

The hour-long special presentation will provide a glimpse into the preparation and training camps of the fighters set to headline the event, including main event participants Michael Bisping and Chris Leben.

Here’s the official description:

"Go behind the scenes as Michael 'The Count' Bisping and Chris 'The Crippler' Leben prepare for a middleweight championship battle."

Of course, we’ll also get to check out some footage of the camps for light heavyweights Brandon Vera and Keith Jardine -- a classic 205-pound match up between two dangerous strikers that has fireworks written all over it.

Keep in mind that the fight between Bisping and Leben is not a middleweight championship battle as described above; however, championship implications are likely on the line -- the winner could earn an opportunity to next challenge for the 185-pound world title.

Remember that will provide all the coverage you can handle, including LIVE blow-by-blow UFC 89 results of the main card action on fight night ... be sure to come check us out.

For those who miss the "Countdown" to UFC 89 premier it will re-air on Thursday, October 16 at midnight ET and Saturday, October 18 at 6 p.m. ET.
