Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: UFC 143 Danavlog #1

By now, you know the deal when it comes to Dana White’s videoblogs, and today’s “episode” is no different. Taking a behind-the-scenes look at the aftermath of the UFC’s second Fox event, the UFC 143 videoblog contains the familiar mix of upper and downer moments, with an emphasis on the downer. Especially tough to watch is Joey Beltran’s realization that his Zuffa career may have reached a temporary standstill in the wake of his first round KO loss to Lavar Johnson. Keep your chin up, “Mexicutioner.”

Let’s get right to the highlights.

(0:45) - Jon Jones, seen here for the last time before disappearing into a thicket of notes from which he has yet to emerge.

(1:22) – God damn it, will someone give Beltran a hug and tell him that everything is going to be alright?

(1:40) – Eric Wisely, still in awe of the calf-slicer Charles Oliveira was able to pull on him. The pain was apparently so incredible that Wisely has trouble explaining to the backstage physician where exactly the strain was.

(2:48) – Jon Jones explains how Cub Swanson is one of the “nastiest dudes” on Team Jackson. He makes a good point.

(3:30) – “Shit man, he take some knees, huh?” – John Olav Einemo, who seems a little more pissed about the clusterfuck of a plane ride he had to take from Norway in retrospect. He still manages to congratulate Mike Russow on his win, however. Stay classy, J.O.E.

(4:45) – Another look at the gash under Nick Lentz’s left eye that “cut” *snicker* his bout with Evan Dunham short.

(5:10) – Does anyone know who the older gentleman responsible for hyping up Michael Bisping is? He could give Flavor Flav a run for his money is all we’re saying.

(5:50) – The agony of defeat, paired here with the thrill of victory. And it’s honestly hard to tell which one is which.

(6:08) – Example #327 of why you never let it go to the judges. It’s like jumping off an air hockey table; it only opens the door for bitter disappointment.

(6:27) – After mirroring the above sentiment, Bisping says that Chael Sonnen “punches like a woman,” before congratulating him on the win. Oh, the ironing.

(6:50) – Bisping, now claiming that Sonnen agreed “The Count” may have taken the first two rounds of their middleweight clash. Man, Bisping just doesn’t have it in him to give a straight compliment to someone, does he? Though we agree, 30-27 was bullshit.

(8:19) – We’d be more grossed out by Phil Davis‘ shin wound if we hadn’t recently come across this.

(9:07) – Perhaps it’s due to my limited knowledge of the Hip hop genre, but it took me like 10 rewinds to figure out that the gentlemen asking DW for an autograph wasn’t T.I. It isn’t, right?

-J. Jones

Without Burt watson they'd be lucky to get a PPV to air on time ever, he does just about everything

Perhaps when the autograph seeker tells Dana that he's a marine and he's going to Afghanistan you should have realized he wasn't T.I.

The shouting old black man is Burt Watson:

In the link above you can see an interview with him courtesy of Ariel Helwani.

He's the "UFC site coordinator". He makes sure the fighters get to their flights, that they have flights, that they have hotels, ferry them to/from fights from those hotels. Makes sure they have wardrobes to prepare in, that they have cups, mouth pieces, gloves, that they have guys putting on their wraps. All that shit. And he brings them out in a timely fashion with the music, the cameras etc.

AND: he does the insane shouting to fire them up.

I might have added shit he doesn't do and also forgotten stuff, but this is the gist of his role.

"Example #327 of why you never let it go to the judges."
"After mirroring the above sentiment..."
Perhaps you overlooked these?
SnackDaddy- February 1, 2012 at 11:48 am
Yeah, i don't see how Bisping said anything out of line here. He did say, "Don't leave it in the hands of the judges" and, "Fair play" to Sonnen. Trust CP to overlook that.
MMA_Hole- February 1, 2012 at 11:08 am
Yeah, yeah. CagePotato doesn't like Bisping. WE GET IT!
humperdinkal- February 1, 2012 at 10:44 am
It is unreal how Bisping got royaly screwed over. He won the first two rounds easily, Sonnen winning the third.
Not a fan of Bisping, but the man has gottne better and in all do respect, that fight was his.
WARBONG- February 1, 2012 at 10:21 am

It's rare to see such a petite Ginger holding like that.
google- February 1, 2012 at 10:04 am
@Onan- i didn't even watch it till BigAngry said that, then i skipped to the 8:20 mark.
Onan- February 1, 2012 at 10:01 am
@BigAngryPurple - is it bad that I was so busy looking at another man's leg that I completely missed that?
BigAngryPurple- February 1, 2012 at 9:54 am
HOLY SHIT nice ghetto hammer on that little red headed doc @ 8:20. would toss.
MentalyptiC- February 1, 2012 at 9:52 am
LOL @ Bisping talkin shit about someone who got a second shot at the title through him
KarmaAteMyCat- February 1, 2012 at 9:44 am
I just want to make it clear that after that fight BISPING garnished a lot of respect from me.
google- February 1, 2012 at 9:41 am
I wonder how clean bisping keeps his car?
KarmaAteMyCat- February 1, 2012 at 9:37 am
Jarred did you really ask us who Burt Watson was?
Onan- February 1, 2012 at 9:28 am
Did Bisping really say "He punches like a woman" @ 6:37?
bootystar- February 1, 2012 at 9:15 am
no offense to dana but he needs another spokesman. men getting naked talking to each other in the shower is weird. Carano is no actor but I can see she could be made as a really god public speaker. she's charming when she is the focus & not when she is trying to multi-taskg like acting. When Carano is focusing on the job at hand she's excellent at what she does. She wants to keep active, I think she should be a spokes person for the ufc or zuffa, put up a better showcase. Not a firey position like cage side, but as a liason
