That's right, the UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva edition of the UFC's slickly produced Countdown show will debut this Tuesday at 8:00pm/PST on SpikeTV. As always, the show will re-air sporadically on both Spike and SportsNet throughout the week leading up to fight night.
Hopefully, the show will feature detailed breakdowns of most of the main card fights because the value on this card is definitely spread out and many fans will be unfamiliar with at least a few of the faces involved. UFC 108 may not be as epic as some UFC New Year's shows have been in the past, but there are still a host of compelling fights on offer. Plus, keep in mind that the UFC will, once again, offer two fights for free, live on Spike before the PPV broadcast.
