It’s been over a month, but we are now getting backstage access to UFC 171 courtesy of UFC president Dana White.
White has released a video blog for this Saturday’s UFC 172 card, taking us back to Dallas a month ago when Johny Hendricks became the new welterweight champion.
In the 10-minute video, we see Hendricks working to cut weight after missing the 170-pound mark on his initial try and almost forcing the fight to be changed at the last minute.
Also, another fighter – Kelvin Gastelum – is shown trying to make welterweight after missing weight, as well.
We are also granted footage from Hendricks after he became the champion be earning a decision victory over Robbie Lawler.
The blog starts off with White putting one of his friends in a chamber at Team Takedown that Hendricks and his team use.
Check things out in the video below, and White stated that he will put out two video blogs this week, so stay tuned for more.
