Video: Behind the scenes UFC 159 backstage pass

Check out an exclusive "backstage pass" video taken from UFC 159 this past Saturday night showcasing some of the work going on behind the scenes to make sure each event goes off without a hitch.

The mixed martial arts (MMA) stars were alligned this weekend (April 27, 2013) before the wild UFC 159 event in Newark, New Jersey, which featured a UFC Light Heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and challenger Chael Sonnen.

Before the event took place, fans had an opportunity to meet the likes of Frankie Edgar, Demetrious Johnson, Anthony Pettis and Ronda Rousey with some photo/autograph sessions, but then the real fun started.

Jon Jones shows off his singing chops, both men are shown trying to stifle the pre-fight jitters and then it's go-time.

Afterwards, you're privy to Jones discussing his gameplan, how he wanted to "Chael Sonnen" Sonnen, beating him at his own game, which he of course did, scoring a first round TKO due to ground and pound with just 27 seconds remaining in the initial frame.
