Dana White's UFC 175 blog: NY with Mike Tyson, PR in Asia, Roy Nelson trying sumo


In his first video blog for Saturday’s UFC 175 event, UFC President Dana White takes us on the road with Mike Tyson and to Asia for PR duties.

After making his pitch for UFC 175, a pay-per-view championship doubleheader that takes place Saturday in Las Vegas, White looks back on the past week.

The trip includes a journey to New York City to film the “Jim Norton Show” pilot with friend/former boxing champ Mike Tyson, as well as to Asia for PR duties ahead of Macau’s “UFC Fight Night 48: Le vs. Bisping” event in August, where he meets with headliners Michael Bisping and Cung Le. While there, White also shares the news with co-headliner Dong Hyun Kim that Tyron Woodley has stepped in as a replacement for injured opponent Hector Lombard.

He also heads to Japan to announce the “UFC Fight Night 52: Hunt vs. Nelson” early lineup.

And hey, you also get to see veteran UFC heavyweight and UFC Fight Night 52 headliner Roy Nelson try some sumo wrestling.

Check out the full video above.
