Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was on the scene earlier today (Sept. 19, 2013) at Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, getting the local media in check for this Saturday night's (Sept. 21) UFC 165: "Jones vs. Gustafsson" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place at the Air Canada Centre in "Hogtown."
We're less than two days away.
In lieu of a pre-fight press conference, the promotion has instead opted for an "Ultimate Media Day," which includes one-on-one interviews with UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, as well as division number one cotneder Alexander Gustafsson, both of whom are scheduled to throw down for "Bones" belt this weekend.
And let's not forget about UFC President Dana White.
The leader of world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion sat down with select reporters for his traditional media scrum, which you can watch in its entirety in the video above. As expected, White talks turkey on UFC 165, as well as a slew of other topics, as the 2013 fight campaign begins to wind down.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 165 event on fight night, starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX Sports 1-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV action, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
