Check out the fifth episode of Embedded for UFC 214.
UFC 214 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 fourth episode for this weekend’s big show in Anaheim, and it serves as a brief introduction to the two fighters that make up the top of the card – Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. You also get to see the fighters competing in the other title bouts at the event.
This one is about the press conference and the open workouts. All the fighters make their way to the media event, and some interact with each other beforehand. They then get on stage, and you’ve probably seen or heard about the highlights of this if you come here very often.
The stars were undoubtedly Jones and Cormier. Jones takes off his shirt before the staredown and calls Cormier a “little sh-t” for some reason. Cormier laughed about it backstage. They did another back-and-forth interview talking some smack as well.
We then get to see some footage of Cormier’s weight cut in the sauna.
We move onto the open workouts. Tonya Evinger, Cris Cyborg, Demian Maia, and Tyron Woodley do their thing. Jones shows up but doesn’t work out – he just hangs with the fans for a while. Finally, it’s the champ Cormier. He gets in there and does his thing, and that’s it for this episode.
UFC 214 goes down on July 29th in Anaheim, CA.
