'Countdown To UFC 134' Debuts Thursday Night

We're just days before the UFC's highly anticipated return to Brazil and the promotional push is chugging at full steam.

For those in need of more pre-fight excitement, "Countdown to UFC 134" is scheduled to debut on Spike TV Thursday night at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

Replays of the episode have been scheduled to air on Friday, August 26th at 3 p.m. ET/PT, and immediately before UFC 134 begins on Saturday, August 27th at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

The broadcast will detail the preparation and lead-up into the big event, focusing on middleweight headliners Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami. Other high-profile bouts are also expected to receive the "Countdown" treatment, including the co-headlining contest between former champions Forrest Griffin and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, and the featured heavyweight tilt between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Brendan Schaub.

UFC 134 is scheduled for August 27th at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
