Get ready for UFC 153 this weekend with the customary Countdown to UFC 153. Learn the back story of where the main card fighters are in their careers. Relive the Silva vs. Sonnen II drama as well as Stephan Bonnar’s fight against Forrest Griffin that kick started the UFC. We see an update of Big Nog’ after the gory injury suffered at the hands of Frank Mir and the story of late replacement in “anti-jiu-jitsu” Dave Herman.
We also get a good look at knockout artist Glover Teixeira as we learn his long journey to the U.S. from Brazil and how he helped Chuck Liddell become a legendary champion in the UFC. From here we transition to the story of Fabio Maldonado, a fellow Brazilian with a background in boxing which he’s used to pick apart opponent after opponent. The countdown clarifies that we have two heavyweight strikers that are looking to go to war.
Jon Fitch is among only a handful of UFC fighters to carry 13 wins in the UFC. Erick Silva doesn’t have as much experience, but in every outing we see an impressive finish as we see with the talented champ Jon Jones. The two promise a finish, and it’s likely that one of them will keep their word.
