UFC is just days away from one of the year's biggest fight cards, and this time it's free on Fox. Benson “Smooth” Henderson will make his second title defense in the Octagon against the brash, young Nate Diaz this Saturday night in Seattle.

But before the main event, two legends will start on their paths back to relevance. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will face off against Swedish sensation Alexander Gustafsson in the co-main event. Gustafsson is riding a five-fight win streak and hopes for a potential title shot against Jon Jones if all goes well for him. Shogun is looking to put himself back in title-shot-contention talk after losing the belt to Jones back in March of 2011. 

B.J. Penn steps back inside the Octagon after nearly a year to go up against the young and hungry Rory MacDonald.

The always-entertaining Pat Barry stops by to show us how to throw a strike from the inside for the Move of the Week. Joey Beltran checks in with The Ultimate Show this week to give us his thoughts on everything from fighting in the UFC to what his fans can expect on fight night. 

Also, Nate Diaz stops by to give us some insight on what he is doing to prepare for an opponent like Benson Henderson.
