UFC 227 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 third episode for this weekend’s big show in California, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
Things start out at UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw’s house, where he’s saying goodbye to his wife and child before he heads out. He grabs coach Duane Ludwig and they take off the gym. We get our first words from Dillashaw teammate Cub Swanson, who is fighting Renato Moicano on the card.
Cody Garbrandt is already at the fighter hotel, working out in the gym there. He’s confident in his victory on Saturday. In another part of LA, Demetrious Johnson is walking like Sean O’Malley on the way to lunch. He hits a bunch of LA-area media outlets promoting the fight. Henry Cejudo arrives at LAX, starting trends. “The opposite of Conor McGregor – saving money.” DJ talks about his legacy, and leaves it up to the media and fans to decide that.
Dillashaw gets to the hotel, talking about Team Alpha Male still holding a grudge. Garbrandt checks his weight, then hangs out with Mike Tyson!
And that’s it. UFC 227 goes down Saturday night in the Staples Center.
