"Countdown to UFC 128" draws 406,000 viewers to Spike TV

Spike TV's debut airing of "Countdown to UFC 128" netted 406,000 viewers.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the numbers with an industry source.

Replays of the pre-event preview show are slated for Thursday at 3:05 p.m. ET/PT and Saturday 6 p.m. ET/PT.

The in-depth "Countdown" show focuses primarily on the night's headliner, which came about after UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua's initial opponent, Rashad Evans, was forced off the card with a knee injury and Jon Jones filled the gap.

A co-headliner between former WEC champs and current UFC bantamweights Urijah Faber and Eddie Wineland, which is expected to earn the winner a title shot, is also examined. Main-card fighters Brendan Schaub and opponent Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic also get some attention.

UFC 128 takes place March 19 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Thursday's "Countdown" show isn't the only pre-event programming planned for the network. As MMAjunkie.com previously reported, the UFC's longtime cable partner airs "UFC Presents Jon Jones: In the Moment" tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

The channel also airs a pair of UFC 128 preliminary card bouts on Saturday night.

Surprisingly I wasn't one of those viewers, I guess I will wait for a re-air of it. Did anyone else watch it?

I was one...

It was good but also confusing cause they advertised Nate vs Akiyama and that fight isnt happening..

I really don't understand why people think JJ is arrogant or full of himself. I think he is young and super confident. He truely believes in himself and answers honestly about it. When he fought Bader he said he felt that he was gonna win and never disrespected anyone just talked about himself confidently. This is what makes him the best JJ he can be. Alot of people try to say oh I don't know what will happen and I just hope to do my best, when they really wanna say I can't lose. At least Jones does it in away that is confident without being disrespectful (Vera excluded). Let him be young and have that feeling of invincibility.
