All decked out in his DeadMau5 tee, UFC President Dana White informs us that UFC 157 is indeed tonight. Beyond that it's a behind the scenes look at UFC on Fuel TV 7.
Here are some of the moments that really stood out to me in this video taken backstage at London's Wembley (photo credit - espn.go.com) -
• 1:08 Really cool moment where Vaughan Lee and Motonobu Tezuka exchange gifts after spending a hard fought 15 minutes together inside of the cage. Unfortunately, the great showman Tezuka was cut from the promotion after the fight. We hope to see him in ONE FC soon.
• 3:08 - Danny Castillo reveals that he may have had one of the worst wrapping jobs ever. This is why he didn't stand with Sass more. Apparently the great "Stitch" wasn't available for this fight.
• 4:59 - Behind the scenes of James Te-Huna's now infamous MIB walkout.
• 5:35 - In the middle of the 2nd Round of his fight with Te-Huna, Ryan Jimmo heard a "snap," in his leg just before he got taken down. It appears that he reaggravated an injury he suffered just recently where he landed stiff doing some hurdle jumps.
• 6:25 - Stone cold Icelandic assassin Gunnar Nelson does some pad work.
• 8:00 - Cyrille Diabate tells Jimi Manuwa that he's retiring.
• 8:23 - Cub Swanson rocks some Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel and the Furious 5 on the headphones while getting his hands wrapped for Poirier.
• 8:48 - "I lost a fight that I could've won." - Poirier "He hit me with a knee or uppercut...I went to step and my legs went out." - Poirier on getting rocked by Swanson early in the fight. Says he didn't want it as bad.
Cub Swanson: "He (Dustin) started talking crap at the very end. He's like - you took this fucking fight from me, you took it from me. I was like - sorry, this is my fight. I was like... I still like you. We had a good chat it was cool. "
• 9:55 - Barao and McDonald embrace inside the cage after a hard fought war.
• 10:55 - Dana to Watson - "Are you shittin me?.... You know you won both bonuses right?"

You know Dana loves him some Ronda Rousey. She brings a whole new fan base to the UFC and is a bad ass fighter on top of everything. The PPV numbers are going to be strong and not because of that boring ass co main event.

Jose Aldo has become my new favorite UFC fighter. After months of ridiculous UFC championship fights Aldo has become the first fighter to put an end to this farce and Dana White is not a happy man.
Got to love how fan friendly the boss is. Big announcement is that Dana said if the champions successfully defend their titles in their next fights Silva will be in a super fight against either GSP or Jon Jones. Who would you guys rather see the GOAT face?

He said: “No, she blows him out of the water. No fighter who has ever fought for the UFC has received as much attention as she has, it’s a fact. Honestly, going into this thing...
