Dana White UFC 177 - Dillashaw vs Barao 2 vlog
Great video blog looking at the behind the scenes of UFC 175. The hardest moment is watching Uriah Hall scream in pain while the doctors are working on his broken toe. Also difficult seeing Stefan Struve cry over being unable to fight Matt Mitrione, as Struve had a near fainting episode before the bout and the fight was cancelled. Mitrione is extremely sympathetic, and the UFC was generous in paying both fighters their win and show money.
We also get to see the real story behind the so-called “talking to” that Dana White gave to Joe Rogan after his post fight interview with Ronda Rousey, where he was instructed by the production truck to ask her if she’d be ready to fight in a few weeks again. Dana was not upset at Joe at all we see and it was the person who asked Joe to say that who he was furious with.

Why do you fight? 
I fight because I feel like it’s human nature we are all fighters in some way or another. I just happen to love to compete and fighting is the ultimate form of competition.
What’d you do if you weren’t a fighter?
Probably teach and coach wrestling
What’s the weirdest thing that happened to you during or before a fight?
(laughs) Ya one time in a fight I was walking back to my corner in between rounds and I inhaled my mouth piece it made me throw up it was a crappy boil in bite from Walmart; I had to use because I lost my good one and it cost me the fight
What’s a misconception fans have about MMA?
I’m not sure it seems like anymore most people who are fans or follow the sport have a good understanding of MMA.
What’s something you’d like to see changed in the sport?
Pay the fighters better money it’s a rough sport and everybody is making good money  but the fighters it’s not fair
What advice would you give to a brand new fighter?
Train train train.
What’s next for you?
I’m fighting September 13th for capital city cage wars in Springfield, Illinois versus Javon Wright
Anything else you want to say?
Thank you for giving me the opportunity and please join me on my journey to become a world champion you can follow me on twitter @JakeThe_gr8 and check out my website http://constantcombat.com

Misconception fans have I think would be the amount of hard work each fighter puts into each fight like maintaining a healthy diet training full time still have to a regular job and support a family. And also fans need to understand that this is all about sportsmanship I don’t need to hate opponent to fight him. What’s something you’d like to see changed in the sport? Something I would like see change would be to be recognized as one of the toughest sports in the world full of talented hard working individuals that deserve the credit. What advice would you give to a brand new fighter? Any advice I would give to a brand new fighter would be if it’s your dream go at it full force get better everyday set new goals for yourself and leave it in God’s hands through Christ anything is possible.
