UFC 160: Velasquez vs Silva - Dana White video blog, part 1

Dana's video blog takes a look back at behind-the-scenes footage of UFC 159.

As usual, fight week usually includes a Dana White video blog that looks...at a previous event. This one is a backstage look at UFC 159, and is a little longer than the usual one.

The blog kicks off with Joe Silva explaining why there isn't a five-minute break for an eyepoke, because the rules were brought in from boxing and never amended. I assume this conversation took place after the Ovince St. Preux vs. Gian Villante fight, but there's no way to tell because there's boxing on the TV in the background (ironically). Next up, you get a look at Jim Miller wincing in pain as his glove is cut off.

The next scene is pretty interesting - Bryan Caraway is talking to Pat Healy about his submission of Miller. Him and Miesha Tate come up and Caraway says he was hoping for Healy to knock Miller out and not sub him because he they were now up for the same submission of the inght bonus. I think we all know the aftermath - Healy did indeed win, but then lost it to due to his positive test and Caraway was awarded it instead. Then Caraway went on his rant about weed (and Healy indirectly), and the rest is history. Good piece of foreshadowing there.

After a quick look at Chieck Kongo and Roy Nelson, you get to see Michael Bisping's entrance. Then some backstage stuff with Chael Sonnen and Jon Jones, followed by Jones' entrance. After that it skips to post-fight, where Dana and Joe Silva figure out that Jones' toe is "destroyed" in the cage. It closes out with some amusing footage of security holding back the guy filming the video blog when he tries to see how Chael is doing during medicals, and Chael talking to some people on the way out.
