Fight week, blog week!
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White is a little late getting his first video blog up in preparation for tonight's (Sat., Sept. 22, 2012) UFC 152: "Jones vs. Belfort" pay-per-view (PPV) event from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, but as the old wise man once said -- better late than never.
As is usually the case, this first one goes over the behind-the-scenes happenings at the last event, UFC 150: "Edgar vs. Henderson 2." There's plenty of little nuggets, too, from Jared Hamman's injury to Yushin Okami and Buddy Roberts making nice to Melvin Guillard's anguish.
Those tears are too real.
He's a good sport about it, though, and he hugs Donald Cerrone, the man who knocked him out, and Greg Jackson, the man who helped Cerrone knock him out. It helps, I'm sure, that they were former training partners, something "Cowboy" acknowledges when saying "The Young Assassin" never hit him that hard in training.
"That body shot almost made me shit," he said.
Finally, Frankie Edgar's team is shown pacing furiously while "The Answer" is being tended to after his decision loss to Ben Henderson. Suffice to say, everyone is pissed ... except Frankie, who seems detached.
That's UFC 150, folks. Now it's time to move forward to UFC 152. Make sure to follow along with MMAmania.com's live blow-by-blow coverage of all the night's action right here.
