Video: Behind the scenes UFC 163 'Backstage Pass' in Rio de Janeiro

Check out behind-the-scenes video from UFC 163 this past weekend.

The mixed martial arts (MMA) stars were aligned this weekend (Aug. 3, 2013) before the funky UFC 163 event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which featured a UFC Featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and challenger Chan Sung Jung.

Before the event took place, take a look at both sides of the main event as they arrived to the HSBC Arena, worked out backstage and got ready for the big walkouts to the Octagon.

Aldo managed to finish "The Korean Zombie" with a fourth round TKO after Jung separated his shoulder throwing a punch to retain his title.

Afterwards, you're privy to Aldo's trainer Andre Pederneiras discussing the champion's broken foot and how he was forced to adjust on the fly, no longer attacking with his trademark leg kicks and instead looking for punches, knees and takedowns.
