The UFC’s traditional pre-event preview show returned on Tuesday with the debut of “Countdown to UFC 158.”

The one-hour special previews Saturday’s “UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz” pay-per-view event, which takes place at Montreal’s Bell Centre.

“Countdown” examines the long-awaited headliner between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (23-2 MMA, 17-2 UFC) and former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz (26-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC). Additionally, it looks at the night’s other big bouts: former interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit (28-6 MMA, 5-2 UFC) vs. top contender Johny Hendricks (14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC), as well as welterweight Jake Ellenberger (28-6 MMA, 7-2 UFC) vs. former Strikeforce champ Nate Marquardt (32-11-2 MMA, 1-1 SF).

Check out the full episode above.
