UFC President Dana White’s latest vlog, which was released ahead of Saturday’s big UFC 168 event, takes us behind the scenes of UFC on FOX 9 earlier this month, which featured Johnson and Benavidez in the main event.
“Mighty Mouse” had to defend his belt in Benavidez’s Sacramento training hometown – and Benavidez had three teammates on the card. But Benavidez was the only one of the four fighting from the blue corner, which meant that Johnson had to share a side of the stage at the press conference with Benavidez teammates Urijah Faber and Chad Mendes.
Check out the scene about 1:20 into the video to see Benavidez and Johnson talking about the potential awkwardness if Johnson had to share a locker room with Benavidez’s training partners.
