Watch Countdown to UFC 143 on Bloody Elbow. (Poster by Anton Tabuena)
As UFC 143 draws near, there are several ways to catch Countdown To UFC 143 including Fuel TV, UFC.com and right here on Bloody Elbow.
Even though the main event of Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit for the interim 170-pound title has warranted a three part UFC Primetime series set to conclude Friday night, the first eight minutes of the 22-minute program are devoted to the main event.
The next eight minutes center on the night's co-main event featuring Fabricio Werdum vs. Roy Nelson. Werdum is making his Octagon return after a successful run in Strikeforce, while Nelson is looking to build on his October victory against Mirko Cro Cop that snapped a two-fight losing streak.
The final few minutes focuses on Josh Koscheck vs. Mike Pierce. After being on the sidelines for nine months recovering from a broken orbital bone suffered at the fists of Georges St. Pierre, Koscheck returned last September as a injury replacement against Matt Hughes and took home a first round KO win. He will face Pierce who is 5-2 in the UFC and is coming off a November split decision win over Paul Bradley.
