“Countdown to UFC 131” debuted Wednesday night on Spike TV. Just in case you forget to set your DVRs, the organization released the YouTube video to make sure fanboys won’t miss a beat.

Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast will feature a heavyweight scrap between Junior dos Santos and Shane Carwin. With a shot at Cain Velasquez’s belt on the line, both 265-pounders kicked their training camps to another gear for a shot at the crown.

Watch as cameras follow Carwin and dos Santos put their bodies through hell in order to get ready for their shootout.

The card will also showcase a critical middleweight tango between Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist Demian Maia and fast-rising Mark Munoz.

If you did catch last night’s documentary and noticed it had a little more pizzazz than typical Countdown shows, it’s because Paul Heyman helped produce it. The former professional wrestling manager is known for having one of the most innovative minds in sports entertainment history.
