With Leather coverage tends to veer toward the faker sports (WWE, LeBron James’ reaction to being touched during basketball games,busty co-eds incorrectly asking out Jeremy Lin for YouTube hits) but we’re doing it big for this weekend’s UFC 145 pay-per-view event.
Starting at7PM/10PM PST/EST this Saturday, April 21, With Leather will be enlisting the help ofFilmDrunkeditor and UPROXX resident UFC expert Vince Mancini to live-blog the event. Not only that, but we’ll have UFC vet and current UFC.com writerDaniel “Danny Boy” Downesin the house to give his professional perspective.
It’s gonna be a grand time, and if you miss it I will personally come to your house and kick you in the gut until you get diverticulitis. BookmarkTHIS LINK. Nothing’s there yet, but that’s where it’ll be.
Countdown to UFC 145: Jones Vs. Evans Live Discussion
This weekend's UFC 145 will feature a clash between top light heavyweights and former teammates Jon Jones andRashad Evans. The elite 205-pound fighters have been butting heads ever since Jones accepted a title fight as a replacement for an injured Evans, but they may finally settle their differences on Saturday.
The fight card will also feature the return of Rory MacDonald, a young Canadian fighter touted by many as the next Georges St-Pierre. MacDonald will meet a fellow rising star in Che Mills, who picked up a dominant victory over Chris Cope in his UFC debut.
Contenders Brendan Schaub, Mark Hominick, Miguel Torres, Michael McDonald, Travis Browne and plenty of other talented fighters also fill out a night of fights that should be one to remember for quite some time.
Before Saturday's event, the fighters will hit the scales at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga. on Friday at 4 p.m. ET. Video of the weigh-ins will be streamed live on the above video player.

The Countdown to UFC 145 show will be debuting tonight on Fuel at9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT, and Bloody Elbow is the place to talk about it. It might be a tad underwhelming compared to your regular Countdown special due to the fact that the UFC has produced a Primetime series about the main event already, but that just gives them more time to focus onRory MacDonald vs. Che MillsandBrendan Schaub vs. Ben Rothwell.
For those wondering, it will only be a half-hour show. The show will be followed up by UFC Tonight and Ultimate Insider, and we'll have discussion posts for that as well.
