Check out episode five of Embedded for UFC 212.
UFC 212 is almost here, and as usual, Embedded is here as well. The show that gives you an inside look at the marquee contestants on PPVs has issued the fifth episode for this weekend’s big show in Rio, and it serves as a brief introduction to the four fighters that make up the top of the card. It shows a few others as well.
It’s open workout day! First up is Claudia Gadelha, who is happy about how much support she’s getting from Brazilian fans. Her opponent Karolina Kowalkiewicz is up next. She thought she would get a lot of hate in Brazil, but she’s also thankful for the positive crowd reaction.
Max Holloway is out to face the dreaded “You’re gonna die!” chants from the Brazilian faithful. And a whole lot of people showed up to see Jose Aldo.
Vitor Belfort works out, then enlists the help of Karolina to put a UFC shirt on his service dog. Yeah.
Aldo returns to talk about the fight, and we get a Big Nog cameo! He says to use the straight jab. Kowalkiewicz meets Big Nog, and talks about sleeping with a UFC belt when she wins one. “Better than boyfriend, better than husband.”
Finally, Gadelha talks about cutting weight, saying the first place it drops off from is her butt. So her coach calls her “pigeon ass”.
And that’s it!
