Showdown Joe is joined by UFC lightweight contender T.J. Grant for the entire episode, taking a look back at the Ultimate Fighting Championships debut in Winnipeg.

We recap the entire fight card from top to bottom, including the main event between Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson that ended with a very close split decision. So what’s next for both fighters? Could we see Henderson drop back down to 185?

Seven Canadians competed at the MTS Centre; we’ve got all the highlights and reaction from a strong showing in their home country.

Before the fights even kicked off there were no shortage of announcements by the UFC president. We go “Inside the Octagon” for all the latest on the wide range of title fights Dana White discussed.

But the biggest announcement of them all was that the Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia will make its debut on Sportsnet in 2014. We’ve got all the details, plus hear from Team Canada’s coach Patrick Cote.

And before the show ends you won’t want to miss T.J. Grant’s reaction to Anthony Pettis saying he should be fighting Benson Henderson at UFC 164 instead of the
Canadian.
