UFC 139 brings a stacked card to sunny San Jose, California this weekend. And, once again, the UFC Countdown series brings us a look into the fighters’ pre-fight mindsets, as well as a glimpse at their personal lives and training practices.
The show’s main event features a throwback to the heyday of PRIDE FC, pitting former UFC light heavyweight champ Mauricio Rua against former Strikeforce/PRIDE title-holder Dan Henderson. This marks Henderson’s first fight since leaving the promotion back in mid 2009. Adding to the stakes, the winner of their match-up is expected to get a shot at UFC gold.
Also on the card, Cung Le and Wanderlei Silva square off in what promises to be a showcase of two MMA veterans. Le will be looking for a victory in his UFC debut after a successful run in Strikeforce while “The Axe Murderer” is hoping to get his career back on track after losing three of his last four fights including a July knockout to Chris Leben.
