UFC's "Road to the Octagon" -- an hour-long show to document/hype/promote the upcoming UFC on Fox 5 card this Saturday -- aired either before or after football on Sunday, depending on your market.

It's a pretty strong piece, which focused on B.J. Penn, Rory MacDonald, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Alexander Gustafsson, Nate Diaz and Ben Henderson.

That's six different cities to dispatch camera crews to, and none of them are all that close to one another.

Embedded elow is the entire show, in case you missed it. If you don't want to watch all 43:20 of it, that is your right, but please watch the montage at the end, set to Henderson's speech. It is nice editing.
