UFC 252 goes down just one short week away on August 9th and you know what that means: it’s time for the UFC’s Countdown show! Watch the full 48 minute episode below to catch yourself up on all the hype surrounding the heavyweight title fight / rubber match between champ Stipe Miocic and challenger Daniel Cormier.
The Countdown show also becomes the Sugar Show thirty minutes in as “Sugar” Sean O’Malley gets some star treatment leading up to his next tough challenge against Marlon Vera. Last but not least, video crews check out what veteran heavyweight and former champ Junior Dos Santos has been up to as he faces up and coming prospect Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Also on the main card but not featured in the Countdown show: bantamweights John Dodson vs. Merab Dvalishvili and 205ers Magomed Ankalaev vs. Ion Cutelaba. Those tuning in for the ESPN prelims will be treated to a lightweight showdown between Jim Miller and Vinc Pichel.
It’s a hell of a card and as usual you can only purchase the PPV through ESPN+ if you’re in the United States. Make sure to tune your internet dials to MMA Mania on fight night for all your play-by-play and highlight needs. We’ll be updating all night as the action goes down.
