Dana White UFC 114 Video Blog: Guess Who Likes Our Photoshops?

(Video courtesy of YouTube/UFC)

So, I attended the UFC press conference in Toronto yesterday and I had a brief chance to interview UFC president Dana White and his company’s new director of Canadian operations, Tom Wright.

During my interview with White, I had him cracking up with a few Photoshops I brought along and asked him to identify the names of ten famous Ontarians depicted in a photo collage. He got all but one correct: Neil Young, but in his defense, it was a trick question as Young was born in Manitoba and grew up in Ontario.

I broke the ice early in the exchange by informing him that we had photographic proof that Shields isn’t re-signing with Strikeforce, before handing him this:

He thought it was hilarious, and before I had a chance to follow up with my second question, he ruined the punchline by reading ahead to the next shop in the book.

I was going to ask him if, because Rampage seems so disgruntled, there’s a possibility that if he were to get a shot at Rua and beat him, he may take the belt and go back to Hollywood.

The plan was to point out this photo and suggest that maybe he could co-star alongside Tiki this time around:

This one did it. Dana was now cracking up, tears in his eyes.

I told him he may as well check out the last one and again, he seemed genuinely amused.

I have video of the interview, but because it went off the rails a bit with Dana breaking up, and cockblocking my follow up questions, it turned out to be more of a casual conversation between dudes than an actual interview, so I’m debating whether or not to post it.

At least we have his secondary reaction to the pics on his vlog…

Oh, I get it, you meant THAT kind of "casual conversation between dudes". I wouldn't post a video of that on the internet if I was you, either. I'd probably be trying to destroy the only copy of it in existence.

831 Father/Ben>> Actually, there IS another way to find out who posted what article. It's not convenient, but it does work.

 @831 Father:The only way to know for sure is to subscribe to this site on Google shows the username of the person who publishes each post.  One of the great joys of this job is to watch commenters give props to/insult the CP editor who they assume wrote a given article, when the article was written by a different person entirely. -BG

Okay, this is going to sound fucking retarded since I've been following this site for months, but how can you tell which staffer wrote which article? Like 99% of the articles, I never know who the writers are unless I look at the comments section.

For example, on this page, either I suck or it's not very obvious, but who wrote this?

Does your arm hurt more from milking those for so long or from patting yourself on the back?

You're debating whether or not to post a "casual conversation between dudes"-type interview with Dana White, but you don't hesitate to post a video and photo-shopped pics that most of us have already seen?? I go to youtube for the Dana Vlogs, I come here for your rapidly diminishing original and quirky posts. Post the interview, clown.

I saw the vblog yesterday and totally recognized the handy work!
You must post the video now, obviously! You can't give yourself credit and then taunt us with the image of Dana with tears.

(I just hope before that you weren't the young guy in the live press conference that got shot down after mumbling about and asking Dana a question that had already been answered...clearly no place for children!)
Mr_Misanthropy- May 26, 2010 at 11:25 am
If you had real balls you would have put a shoop of Dana's face and a Beluga Whale Penis (tm) on the last page. That would have been an interesting reaction to film.

Neil Young was born in Toronto and moved to Winnipeg when he was 12.

Hey, when you post a 10-minute video, how 'bout you give us a fucking hint as to the relevant part.

C'mon... any dude named Tiki must have some homo tendencies...

Fighters take note: When it comes time to negotiate your contract, bring along a few funny Dana White photoshops to soften the man up.
