UFC President Dana White, along with coaches Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Shane Carwin, welcomed the fighters to the octagon at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. White quickly unleashed a F-bomb filled speech imploring the fighters to be exciting while leaving it all in the cage. Nelson offered his opinion that the most important thing for the fighters was to make it into the house. So it took about two minutes before we had the first disagreement between White and Nelson.

It was time to pick teams and Dana announced that each fighter who wins by stoppage will earn $5,000. Dana flipped a coin toss to determine which coach would choose to make the first fight or to pick the first member of their team.
