The UFC’s traditional pre-event preview show returned Tuesday with the debut of “Countdown to UFC 159.” You can now watch the full episode here.

The one-hour special previews Saturday’s “UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen” pay-per-view event, which takes place at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. 

“Countdown” examines the long-awaited headliner between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) and challenger Chael Sonnen (27-12-1 MMA, 6-5 UFC). Additionally, it looks at the night’s other main-card bouts: Alan Belcher (18-7 MMA, 9-5 UFC) vs. Michael Bisping (23-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) at middleweight; light heavyweights Phil Davis (10-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) vs. Vinny Magalhaes (10-5 MMA, 1-2 UFC); and New Jersey’s own Jim Miller (22-4 MMA, 11-3 UFC) vs. Pat Healy (29-16 MMA, 0-1 UFC).
