Video: Urijah Faber and Joseph Benavidez at DREAM.5 in Osaka

For those of you who saw DREAM.5, you might have noticed Urijah Faber carrying a camera and filming while Joseph Benavidez walked out.

I asked, and Joe and Urijah were kind enough to let me borrow the camera.

The following is a couple minutes of Joseph’s entrance, from Urijah’s point of view. I think you will agree this is some pretty sweet footage, a real “behind the scenes”.

There is PLENTY more, including a ton of pics, more video, and a clip of the crazy announcer lady goofing off and announcing Joseph as the winner backstage for the camcorder.

I just finished this first one, and will have the rest up this weekend, or early next week.

Thanks again to Joseph and Urijah for sharing the footage.

You can also listen to the both of them in studio last night (7/24) at Just go to the on-air host dropdown, and then click Carmichael Dave. The interviews are on the left.

Enjoy guys.

    There is also a pretty good interview with Urijah done later on with Bas and Kenny. Kenny Rice (while never mentioning the WEC) kept trying to get Urijah to say he wanted to leave and fight in Japan to fight Kid. Urijah did a great job side stepping it and eventually said it would be great to fight Kid one day. It was pretty amusing and it was obvious both were trying to play politics.

    On a side note…Bas and Kenny keep getting better and have developed some good chemistry on HDnet. They got off to a rough start but are really cruising now. I think Bas is better now than he was on PRIDE.

    i love bas and kenny they are much better to listen to
    i can’t stand goldi he is a pawn and rogan has to watch what he says or he could get in trouble from dana
    with bas and kenny it is all about the fight and the fighters
    the ufc runs ads to self promote and goldi jus blows smoke up peoples ass to hype the ufc.
    the ufc has great production but they have had a lot of practice
    look at affliction they are putting the best fights to get her its about the fans

    “rogan has to watch what he says or he could get in trouble from dana”

    Rogan says he has never once been told what to say except for something about 4 years ago that had to do with a lawsuit.

  • Fabricio says:

    Lanny Hart is the queen of all MMA announcers. Good god she gives me chills. Awsome vid by Faber.

  • Mike Wolfe says:

    Terrible Ted and Stranglehold for an intro. Very retro and very cool. Ted’s got the MMA attitude.

  • Krissy B says:

    Interesting behind-the-scenes perspective – it looked like a real rush. Can’t wait to see more!

  • Fan says:

    I am waiting for the rest of vids!!
