UFC President Dana White has posted his second video blog pertaining to this weekend’s UFC 144 lineup, giving viewers a glimpse behind the scenes at what he’s been up to this week in Japan including a press conference promoting the event.
In the clip, also White does a little shopping at a MMA-related store in Saitama, though the highlights definitely come from his backstage interactions with UFC 144 fighters Frankie Edgar and Quinton Jackson.
“What are you weighing,” White asks Jackson who responds with a laugh, “You don’t wanna know.”
Another entertaining exchange between White and “Rampage” relates to Jackson’s desire to move to Japan for a year in hopes of learning the language. However, it’s not necessarily for the reasons one might assume.
“My kids be talking sh*t about me. My two youngest kids are Japanese. They’re fluent. They talk sh*t about me right in front of my face. I just want to learn so I can talk sh*t back to them,” Jackon jokes. “I can understand a little bit of what they’re saying but I just know they’re talking sh*t about me. But I don’t know what they’re saying. They’re laughing because they know I don’t know. That’s embarrassing that your kids can speak a language you can’t.”
UFC 144 takes place tomorrow night starting at 10:00 PM EST with prelims on Facebook/FX starting a few hours earlier.
