We’re at the part of the week where weigh-ins are around the corner and everyone is jonesing for food (except Demetrious Johnson).
UFC 216 is just two days away on October 5th from Las Vegas and we’re up to episode 3 of the fight week UFC Embedded series for the event. Here’s what you can expect to see from the episode:
On Episode 3 of UFC 216 Embedded, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson tells the media he expects a finish in Saturday’s fight, then taunts interim lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee at a press lunch in LA. His opponent Ray Borg receives in-cabin applause on the short flight to Vegas. Heavyweight Derrick Lewis pushes his cardio limits in the gym and tries to negotiate a drive-through meal, while opponent Fabricio Werdum continues his training at the UFC Performance Institute. Las Vegas resident Lee returns to a changed city, determined to proceed with business as planned. His opponent Tony Ferguson turns a basketball court into an MMA dojo. UFC 216 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two title fights at UFC 216 taking place Saturday, October 7 on Pay-Per-View.
