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).
