All set to shell out $64.95 for Saturday’s UFC event? Ah, thankfully the MMA promotion did the right thing by making the show available on cable television instead of pay-per-view after the featured attraction between heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum and Cain Velasquez fell through.
But is Johny Hendricks (pictured) vs. Stephen Thompson even worth your time?
The UFC has released a “Countdown” segment featuring the welterweights to help pique your interests.
Newly-named “UFC Fight Night 82: Hendricks vs. Thompson” goes down Saturday inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
