Tomorrow night may mark the UFC’s return to PPV but a week ago the organization wowed fans on free television thanks to UFC on FOX 4. The card featured a number of entertaining affairs including a pair of light heavyweight tilts between Lyoto Machida-Ryan Bader and Mauricio Rua-Brandon Vera.
Following tradition, UFC President Dana White has released a “behind the scenes” glimpse at the fallout from the show, capturing competitors’ reactions moments after having made their way backstage.
Perhaps the most memorable moment in the clip features a heartfelt exchange between the headliners where Vera shows an immense amount of respect for Rua, thanking him for the opportunity and expressing his appreciation for Rua’s accomplishments in the sport.
