As the build-up to UFC 182 this Saturday begins to build-up, the UFC has released their latest set of 'Countdown To' videos to go with it.

UFC 182 will be the UFC's first event of 2015 and with a stacked card full of top fights, it's certainly going to set the tone for the rest of the year.

The main event is the eagerly anticipated Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier clash for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship - which was originally scheduled for UFC 178.

These two have been having a war of words for months now and even a physical battle at a UFC 178 press conference.

Bad blood

The feud has been so bitter that the UFC has even produced a secondary video for the two - titled: Bad Blood.

This event could easily be a Fight of the Year candidate, if not one of the best of all time and many are predicting that Cormier will push Jones further and harder than ever before.

That says a lot when you consider in that Jones' fight with Alexander Gustafsson is touted as his best fight and one of the greatest of all time.

Coming into the cage on Saturday, there's going to be a lot of pressure on each man as Jones looks to bolster his claims towards being the greatest ever MMA fighter, while Cormier wants to derail it all.

Co-main event - Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone vs. Myles Jury

Highlighting the undercard for the evening is a fight that could decide the next contender to the Lightweight title, currently held by Anthony Pettis.

'Cowboy' is a fan's fighter, who likes to mix it up as often as he can and is currently riding a five win-streak, which includes a win over former Bellator Lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez.

On the other side of the cage, is Myles 'Fury' Jury who remains undefeated in 14 professional bouts.

The 26-year-old fighter is on the verge of joining the elite in the lightweight division and win over Cerrone would rocket him into title contention.

So who have you got down to win Saturday's grudge match? Jones or Cormier? Decision or KO? Let us know in the comments below.
