Fight week, blog week!
The world's largest fight promotion returns to "The Land of the Rising Sun" this coming Sat., Feb. 25, 2012, with UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" from the Saitiama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
And UFC President Dana White is pumping out blogs to get us ready for it. Highlights from episode one, which centers around backstage goings on from UFC 143, include:
- White thought Matt Riddle vs. Henry Martinez was "the worst mismatch in UFC history" when it was made and congratulated both fighters on a job well done after a close contest that went the distance.
Alex Caceres doesn't even remember hitting Edwin Figueroa in the balls the second time.
Roy Nelson thought he won at least one round and maybe even two. So "Big Country" actually thought he beat Fabricio Werdum.
Nick Diaz felt like he won the first, second and fifth rounds and maybe lost the third and fourth. He also made a conscious decision not to chase Carlos Condit down during the fight. You get to see plenty of Diaz backstage as he passionately describes his view of the action in the cage.
- The video ends with UFC poking fun at Nelson as he lays out his case for winning the second and third round against Werdum.
Stay tuned for the next one, Maniacs.
