The pre-event hype show, “Countdown” for UFC 149 will begin airing on July 17 on FUEL TV. The pay-per-view is set for July 21 from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Countdown to UFC 149 will follow Urijah Faber and Renan Barao as they prepare to compete for the interim UFC bantamweight championship.
The main event of the card has been switched around several times, as the planned Jose Aldo-Erik Koch match for Aldo’s UFC featherweight title was scrapped after an injury to “Scarface.”
Replays of the show , which is slated to debut at 9 p.m. ET on July 17, are set for July 18 (5 a.m. ET), July 19 (12:30 a.m. and 11 p.m. ET), July 20 (4 p.m. ET) and July 21 (7 p.m. ET).
