Fight week, blog week!
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White returns with his popular promotional series, taking to YouTube.com to promote the upcoming UFC on FOX 4: "Shogun vs. Vera" mixed martial arts (MMA) event that takes place this weekend (Aug. 4, 2012) from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
White starts off by backtracking on his original plan to have the winner of Mauricio Rua vs. Brandon Vera fight the winner of UFC 151 headliners Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson, by also including the co-main event of Ryan Bader vs. Lyoto Machida in his light heavyweight lottery as well.

We also get some behind-the-scenes video footage from the UFC 149: "Faber vs. Barao" pay-per-view (PPV) event that went down earlier this month in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, a look at his son Aidan in "the pit" along with a certain birthday boy treating himself right at the Fantasy Factory (again).
