The best thing about Fox Sports 1 airing the UFC’s “Countdown” shows on Sundays is that fans who are too busy to watch the premiere can stream it while at work on Monday. Nothing like getting paid to pretend to work, right?

“Countdown to UFC 173” featured reigning UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao and TJ Dillashaw as they prepare for Saturday’s shootout inside MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The co-main event between Daniel Cormier (pictured) and Dan Henderson, as well as the welterweight battle with Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger also appeared in the hour-long piece.
