UFC Fight Night 82 open workout video highlights starring Johny Hendricks, Stephen Thompson, more!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Las Vegas for its UFC Fight Night 82 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which showcases welterweight studs Johny Hendricks and Stephen Thompson in the headliner this Saturday evening (Feb. 6, 2016) inside MGM Grand.

"Bigg Rigg" and "Wonderboy" are set to clash inside the Octagon in a bout that contains major 170-pound title implications, but before that, the pair showed off their world-class skills on the feet (and the mat) before dozens of eager fans in attendance for UFC "Vegas" open workouts earlier this week.

Watch the open workouts recap above, which includes footage and thoughts from each of the four main- and co-main event participants, including Top-15 heavyweight contenders Roy Nelson and Jared Rosholt.

"Big Country" aims to stop a three-fight skid against the standout wrestler Rosholt, who has been on a roll of late, recently adding to his UFC win total by securing a lopsided unanimous-decision win over Stefan Struve back at UFC 193 in November.

Check out more open workout footage, featuring both Thompson and Nelson below:
