Dana White video blog for UFC 142: 'Aldo vs Mendes' in Brazil

Fight week, blog week.

UFC President Dana White tells us it's that time again (already), as he gets us geared up for this Sat., night's (Jan. 14, 2012) UFC 142: "Aldo vs. Mendes" event from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Before we get to that fight card and all its juicy match-ups, first we must look back at the behind-the-scenes of the last event, UFC 141: "Lesnar vs. Overeem," which took place this past Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And that's exactly what the first video blog of the week does. It's mostly the usual backstage fare: medical check ups with the fighters who suffered hard losses, like Jon Fitch, who was knocked out in 12 seconds by Johny Hendricks. "Big Rig" is shown shooting the breeze with Joe Rogan and Lorenzo Fertitta after, happy as a tornado in a trailer park.

Perhaps the best part of the video blog is when White gets in the cage and tells Nate Diaz he needs to go to the referee so they can announce a winner after his fight against Donald Cerrone. Diaz replied simply, "Yes, sir." White followed up by telling Nate and his brother Nick, who was there as well, to "Be cool, alright? Everybody be cool."

His relief when Diaz hugs Cerrone is palpable.

Because White is "doing a bunch of stuff for The Ultimate Fighter on FX," he won't get to Brazil until Wednesday, which means this video blog will have to tide you over until the weekend, Maniacs. Don't go crazy.
