Countdown to UFC 101 will debut next Tuesday, Aug. 4, at 11 p.m. ET on Spike TV to promote the upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pa., on Aug. 8.
The hour-long special presentation will provide a glimpse into the preparation and training camps of the fighters set to headline the show, including main event participants and heated rivals BJ Penn and Kenny Florian.
We’ll also get the skinny on the light heavyweight showdown that features Anderson Silva, stepping out of his comfort zone at 185-pounds to challenge the feisty Forrest Griffin, on the main card. And let's not forget about Ricardo Almeida taking on the dangerous Kendall Grove.
For those who miss the "Countdown to UFC 101" premier it will re-air on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 2 a.m. ET and then again on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 6 p.m. ET.
