Countdown To UFC 128 Video

countdown to ufc 128

Spike TV aired 'Countdown to UFC 128' last night, which promoted three of the major fights that will take place at UFC 128: Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Jon Jones, Urijah Faber vs. Eddie Wineland and Brendan Schaub vs. Mirko CroCop.

Last night on Spike TV, the UFC aired "Countdown to UFC 128", an event designed to promote the three major fights on Saturday's card by giving contenxt, background and storylines behind the fights. I wasn't able to catch it live, so I've included the full video below. And lucky for us, the good folks at BloodyElbow.com have a nice recap.

Here's part of the recap:

The show also took a look at the co-main event bantamweight fight between Urijah Faber and Eddie Wineland and the featured heavyweight clash between Brendan Schaub and Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic.

...

We start with a look at the challenger, Jones. His coach, Greg Jackson, says he is evolving at a staggering rate. Jackson says he'll be showing others moves and Jones just watches and picks them up and makes them his own.

Then it's over to Eduardo Alonso, Shogun's manager. He says they heard Machida Era, Jon Jones Era, but the Shogun Era started a long time ago. Jones says it can be both their eras.

We hear about Rashad Evans getting hurt in training and how Jones found out Evans got hurt two days before his UFC 126 fight with Ryan Bader. Shogun says he was riding with Dana White to do an appearance on The Ultimate Fighter when he found out that Evans couldn't fight. Jones said Evans told him he might get the title shot the night before his fight at dinner. Jones said he couldn't finish his meal because his nerves were so high. Shogun told Alonso he'll fight anybody. We see clips from the Jones-Bader fight and Jones being offered the title shot after his dominating win.

There's much more to the story, so either read the recap in full or watch the video.
