UFC 144 Video: Dana White Posts Video Blog On UFC 143 Backstage

UFC president Dana White is in full PRIDE mode for UFC 144 in Japan this Saturday.

Even though UFC president Dana White said this Saturday's UFC 144 wouldn't harken back to the days of PRIDE, that didn't stop him from wearing a PRIDE 1 shirt to kick off his first video blog of fight week, covering all the backstage stuff from UFC 143.

Some of the highlights in the nine minute clip include:

  • White calling Matt Riddle vs. Henry Martinez the biggest mismatch in UFC history and Riddle being a bit excited after the victory.
  • Chris Cope asking if he was out cold.
  • Alex Caceres not remembering he kicked Edwin Figueroa twice below the equator.
  • Mike Pierce shrugging off the severity of a deep cut on top of his head.
  • Roy Nelson saying he won at least two rounds over and over and over again. He was joking, I think. Zuffa co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta had a good chuckle about it anyway.
  • The in-cage reaction when Nick Diaz lost and Diaz backstage explaining how he saw the fight going down. "I'm not going to no press conference," was one notable quote. This was the most I've seen Diaz talking open and honestly, possibly ever.
