The UFC has released it's latest set of 'Countdown to' videos for this weekend's UFC 172 in Baltimore, Maryland.
The videos allow a closer look at both fighters and their plans and preparations going into the fight and they've released videos for the top three fights on the card. Jon Jones (19-1) vs. Glover Teixeira (22-2) for the UFC Light Heavyweight title is the main event. Jones is on a 10-fight win streak, while Teixeira is unbeaten since 2006 and has recorded 19 stoppages out of his 22 wins.
Just before the main event will be another Light Heavyweight clash that has title implications. Phil 'Mr Wonderful' Davis (12-1) will fight Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson (16-4) with the winner likely to get a number one contender's bout, if not a chance at the title themselves.
The video for that bout can be viewed here.
While also on the Countdown list is Tim 'The Barbarian' Boetsch (17-6) vs. Luke Rockhold (11-2) in a middleweight clash.
Rockhold is ranked #5 in the UFC rankings and a win over Boestch could put him on the fringes of a title shot in the near future - although he's likely going to need to win another fight, maybe even two, before he can guarantee himself a shot.
The video that bout can be viewed here.
