Dana White gets behind the scenes for UFC 134, UFC Fight Night 25, and a press conference for UFC 135 in his latest video blog.

First we get to see White's enthusiasm for the upcoming card and the sportsmanship shown during the latest events.

The Brazilian crowd is ridiculously loud as Dana White enters the arena and Dana sits cage-side, complaining about the late stoppage on Luis Cane.

Next, we get to see the entrances of Yushin Okami and Anderson Silva for the main event of UFC 134: Rio. The crowd erupts as Anderson retains his title. Dana congratulates Anderson backstage on his win, then thanks Okami for a great fight, knowing that "Yushin always comes to fight."

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira gets confirmation of his Knockout of the Night bonus, picking up Dana White in excitement and promising Erick Silva $5,000 for his knockout of Luis Ramos. Big Nog is very complimentary of Brandan Schaub, saying he "is strong with heavy hands."

Next, the video jumps to UFC Fight Night 25 where Matt Riddle is being attended to after his fight with Lance Benoist. Despite the loss, Riddle is incredibly complimentary of his opponent, congratulating him on being 6-0.

Shamar Bailey asks to come train with Evan Dunham after his loss, to which Dunham replies, "You're always welcome."

Cody MacKenzie is angry after his submission loss to Vagner Rocha, barely willing to sit down to be attended to by the doctors.

Jake Ellenberger and Jake Shields enter the arena.

Shields is being attended to backstage and complains about the stoppage in his knockout loss. The commission official tells him he was "glazed over," and then encourages him to get a CAT scan. Shields expresses concern over the radiation.

Jake Ellenberger hangs out drinking water, confirming that he has been paid and is in no pain after the fight.

Next, the video jumps to the UFC 135 Press Conference, where Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Jon Jones exchange a few insults and "Rampage" mocks Jones for his staredown technique.

It's always nice to get a behind the scenes look—particularly when they involve these moments of amazing sportsmanship—at the fighters we cheer for and support. As Dana White states, "it makes me proud to be in this sport."
