If you’re one of the countless MMA fans who lacks Fuel TV the UFC understands your plight and as such has provided another fix to hold you over until the network becomes readily available for all basic cable subscribers.
Last night the Countdown special for UFC 143: Condit vs. Diaz made its debut and featured headliners Carlos Condit-Nick Diaz discussing their bout, as well as the players in the evening’s other featured fights between Fabricio Werdum-Roy Nelson and Mike Pierce-Josh Koscheck. The UFC has now released the video online, giving those who missed it a commercial-free chance to check things out.
“Everybody hits hard,” dismissed Diaz when asked about facing someone with Condit’s power. “If you’re gonna fight in the UFC you’re probably stronger than I am. You probably lift a lot more weights, push more weight….you probably hit harder, run faster. I just worked harder than a lot of these guys in training and they know it.”
Check out the entire Countdown below and make sure to tune into UFC 143 when the preliminary pairings start on Facebook/FX at 7:00 PM EST:
