UFC 143 Dana White Video Blog: Behind the Scenes of UFC on Fox 2

Sean SmithAnalyst IJanuary 31, 2012

The UFC has released its latest version of company president Dana White's video blog. Included in the video is behind-the-scenes footage of UFC on Fox 2 competitors as they prepare for and react to their fights from this past Saturday's event in Chicago.

At 1:22 of the video, an emotional Joey Beltran tears up after being knocked out by Lavar Johnson. The loss marked the first time the granite-chinned Beltran had ever been knocked out in his UFC career.

On the losing end of an early candidacy for Submission of the Year, UFC newcomer Eric Wisely tries explaining exactly what happened when he was caught in a rare calf slicer by Charles Oliveira.

The blog also shows co-main event fighters Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping watching preliminary bouts as they warm up backstage and await Burt Watson's call to make their walk to the octagon.

Toward the end of the video, light heavyweight contender Phil Davis, who was defeated by Rashad Evans in the main event, receives treatment for a cut on his shin. The cut was most likely suffered when one of Davis' leg kicks was checked by Evans.
