Fight week, blog week!
UFC 143: "Diaz vs. Condit" takes place this weekend (Feb. 4, 2012) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, meaning that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White has begun to roll out his promotional video blog series in anticipation of the SuperBowl weekend pay-per-view (PPV) event.
However, before we set our sights on "Sin City," White takes us behind-the-scenes as he prepares his team for the encore performance of his mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion on the FOX network this past weekend (Jan. 28, 2012) at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
In addition to seeing White in the high-powered UFC on Fox 2 production booth, we watch the fighters moments before they enter the Octagon, as well as when they return to the locker room after their respective bouts. Rashad Evans, Phil Davis, Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping, among others, are all featured in this episode.
Check out "Mr. Wonderful" as his shin gets stitched up after his unanimous decision loss to "Suga," listen to Eric Wisely wonder what submission Charles Oliveira used to make him tap (it was a calf slicer), Chris Weidman explain his sluggish performance and Nik Lentz mugging for the cameras with the gruesome eye cut that forced his fight against Evan Dunham to be stopped early.
