As promised, UFC President Dana White has come through with another video blog in advance of the UFC on FOX 3: "Diaz vs. Miller" event set to take place this Sat., May 5, 2012, at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
White is back at the The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) gym to get predictions on the card from this season's coaches, Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber. The former has Pat Barry over Lavar Johnson, Rousimar Palhares taking out Alan Belcher, Josh Koscheck grinding out a decision over Johny Hendricks, and in the main event, Nate Diaz defeating Jim Miller.
As for Faber, he's got Johnson but only slightly, Belcher via training with Duke Roufus, Koscheck by way of knockout, and Diaz because he's "The California Kid's" boy. That works.
That leads into the behind-the-scenes look at UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans," which took place this past April 21 in Atlanta. White is shown getting treated for food poisoning and talking about nearly dying from the experience.
Finally, we see select fighters backstage dealing with the agony of defeat, including Mark Hominick, Miguel Torres, and Rashad Evans. "Suga" is especially compelling because he's shown trying to explain to his team what went wrong against Jon Jones. In short, a lot.
That's episode two, folks. Stay tuned for number three.
