UFC 91 Countdown tonight

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 UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture and former WWE superstar, Brock Lesnar.

Here’s the official description:

“Go behind the scenes as 3-time UFC® Heavyweight Champ Randy ‘The Natural’ Couture and wrestling powerhouse Brock Lesnar prepare for the biggest fight in mixed martial arts history! Can the legend prevail? Or will a new hero rise?”

We’ll also likely get to check out some footage of the camps for co-headliners Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson — a match up that could be considered a number one contender eliminator match in the talent-laden 155-pound division.

For those who miss the “Countdown” to UFC 91 premier it will re-air on Thursday, November 13 at midnight and Saturday, November 15 at 6 p.m. ET.

Hopefully the Stevenson/Florian fight gets some coverage on this.

I'm disappointed, I will be unable to watch the Countdown tonight. I wonder if anyone will post the show on the internet before the 15th.

I still like how this is being hyped as "the biggest fight in UFC history." Its like the guys at Zuffa WANT to insult our intelligence. Every fight you promote can't be the greatest of all time guys. Stop taking advice from Don King's big book of fight promotion please.

Every fight? That's pushing it quite a bit. And seeing as this actually is one of the biggest fights in UFC history, can you really blame them for hyping it that way?

I agree saying that they say every fight is the biggest in history is pushing it but I am wondering if I am the only one that thinks this fight is overhyped?

Buy Rates wise I think this will be a record setter although I think they should have chose a stronger marquee co main event.

You don't think Stevenson/Florian is a good fight? It is pretty much for the #1 spot and I think it is better then the main event.
