With a heavyweight headlining matchup of Junior Dos Santos vs. Shane Carwin, this weekend’s “UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin” event marks the promotion’s return to Canada.

In anticipation of the pay-per-view event, Spike TV debuts “Countdown to UFC 131″ tonight at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.

UFC 131 takes place June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The pay-per-view event features a heavyweight tilt between top contenders Dos Santos and Carwin.
