As a reminder, "UFC Primetime" returns tonight in anticipation of UFC 129's championship main event.

The three-part series focuses on UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre (21-2 MMA, 15-2 UFC) and former Strikeforce titleholder Jake Shields (26-4-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who headline this month's massive UFC 129 event.

Episode No. 3, the final episode of the series, debuts tonight (early Thursday) at midnight ET/PT.

The final episode airs on Spike TV again on Saturday as part of a 90-minute long replay of all three episodes in the series. The airing starts at 1 p.m. ET/PT, and the final episode hits the airwaves at 2 p.m. ET/PT.

UFC 129 takes place April 30 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and airs on pay-per-view. The event is sold out with more than 55,000 tickets purchased within the first hour of the on-sale period. It'll be the largest-attended event and biggest gate in North American MMA history.

Different from the UFC's traditional "Countdown" show (which also returns for UFC 129), "UFC Primetime" goes more in depth and focuses on some of the biggest fights of the year. The most recent "Primetime" special, for example, focused on this past October's UFC 121 heavyweight title clash between then-champ Brock Lesnar and challenger Cain Velasquez.

St-Pierre twice before has been featured in "UFC Primetime" specials. The champ's UFC 111 bout with Dan Hardy drew the extra treatment, as did a UFC 94 fight with B.J. Penn. Shields, meanwhile, is featured for the first time.
