Dana White UFC 143 Video Blog: Day One

Despite a remarkable run of three events in three weeks, there’s no time for rest as Dana White released the first installment of his UFC 143 video blog on Monday.

After the usual housekeeping fanfare, the scene shifts to UFC on Fox 2’s pre-show format meeting. White runs through the basics with Jon Jones, Randy Couture, and Curt Menefee, before moving into the production room to witness Fox’s UFC robots debut live on network television.

Next we move to the series’ cornerstone, behind-the-scenes footage of the emotional post-fight gumbo from a slew of battered fighters. A tearful Joey Beltran slowly trudges into the frame, followed by his elated vanquisher, Lavar Johnosn. Meanwhile, a baffled Eric Wisely tries to understand how he lost to Charles Oliveira’s ridiculous calf slicer, eventually admitting, “I pretty much submitted myself.”

The action soon moves to a pink-shirted Jon Jones hyping-up his Jackson-teammate Cub Swanson, concluding his point with this foreboding line, “He’s one of the nastiest dudes on our team.” Ten minutes later Swanson’s opponent, George Roop, is asleep on the mat.

As we transition back to the post-fight footage, exhausted heavyweight John-Olav Einemo can’t believe his knees couldn’t knockout Mike Russow. Across the frame, Nik Lentz is strangely at peace with the incredibly nasty cut oozing blood under his left eye.

Finally, the primetime events have arrived, as Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping stroll out to the cage, and Burt Watson shrieks at the top of his lungs to hype the moment. Afterward, Bisping is (justly) incredulous about the judge that scored the fight 30-27 Sonnen.

Next comes Phil Davis, who suffers a massive gash on his right shin sometime during his five-round loss to Rashad Evans. “Mr. Wonderful” apparently hates needles, which is unfortunate because a very large one is soon embedded into his leg for roughly 30 seconds.

White wraps up the vlog by congratulating Chris Weidman for his victory over Demian Maia. After shedding 32 pounds in 10 days, Weidman has just one thing on his mind — the buffet table.
