4. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC Rio-Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes (Saturday 10pm from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil live on Pay-Per-View)

3. Tennis: Australian Open opening round (Sunday 6:30pm Monday 3am & 9pm from Melbourne, AUS live on ESPN2/

Best part of the Aussie Open? Awkward interviews with Todd Woodbridge…
