It’s fight week, so you know what that means – it is also blog week for UFC president Dana White (Pictured). In his latest installment, White provides exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from “UFC on FOX: Evans vs. Davis” as we head into this weekend’s pay-per-view broadcast in Las Vegas.
Outside of seeing a distraught Joey Beltran get helped backstage, fans also get close up shots of Nik Lentz’s battered left eye and cuts on Phil Davis’ right shin.
White also gives Chris Weidman mad props for stepping in on 10 days notice to hand Demian Maia a decision loss.
UFC 143 takes place Saturday inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Nevada. The PPV broadcast airs live at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
