UFC 134: Rio - Dana White Video Blog, Day 1

Dana White is back with a new batch of the video blogs that he does for each event. Since UFC 134 is coming up this Saturday night, he's already got the first one for this event out. If you don't want any spoilers, skip down and watch the video now. As usual, there's some residual stuff from the last event (UFC on Versus 5 on August 14th), and it starts off pretty funny. There were some protesters outside the event in Milwaukee, and Dana just goes up and talks to them. One guy banters with him for a bit until he's informed exactly who Dana is. It ends pretty quickly after that.

Next up is Dana talking to Chris Lytle after the storybook ending to his career. Lytle's all class thanking Dana for everything. After messing with a snorer on the plane for a bit, it's off to the UFC on Fox announcement. Following a cameo from Joe Rogan (in his wedding suit), we get to hear from skateboarder Rob Dyrdek, Rashad Evans (in a mean-looking cast), and Frankie Edgar. All three give them picks for the top two fights at UFC 134, and they all pick Anderson Silva to beat Yushin Okami. Each of them sees Forrest Griffin vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua as a lot closer, but only Rashad sides with Forrest.

This blog was more entertaining than most, so it's worth checking out. Here's the full video for your viewing pleasure.
