Episode two of UFC President Dana White's video blogs for the UFC 142: "Aldo vs. Mendes" pay-per-view event kicks off with the bossman hopping on a plane to get himself to Brazil for the big event.
Some behind the scenes production fun leads us to the big moment when White tells Vitor Belfort that Anthony Johnson won't be making weight for their fight. A clearly drained and discombobulated "Phenom" chomps on ice while mulling his options.
He's told by White that he doesn't have to make 185-pounds but if he doesn't, he won't get 20-percent of Johnson's purse.
After consulting with Belfort's team, the decision is made to remain professional and do what he was contracted to do, which is make the middleweight limit. Later on, that's exactly what he does, coming in at 186-pounds.
We also see Johnson attempt to explain to White what happened but that's for another time. He was told, along with Vitor's team, that he had to come in under 205-pounds today to proceed with the fight, and he was able to do so.
The blog ends with Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones picking "Rumble" to win but making clear that he doesn't respect the way he failed to make weight for the bout. Essentially, he voiced what many MMA fans are currently thinking and feeling.
Nonetheless, fight time is near, Maniacs. Time to get busy inside the cage and ignore all this weight nonsense. Ready?
