Check out the sixth episode of Embedded for UFC 241.
UFC 241 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 sixth episode for this weekend’s big show in Anaheim, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
Daniel Cormier is going to an Angels game to throw out the first pitch. After the anthem and the fireworks, it’s go time. He throws a decent pitch to Mike Trout, then has a short convo with the best player in baseball.
Pettit is on weight (obviously) and he’s just drilling fight situations.
It’s Ultimate Media Day. Cormier talks to Dominick Cruz about being lighter for this fight. He discusses his son with Jon Anik and jokes with Cruz. Pettis sees Dana White, as do DC and Yoel Romero. They all say the standard things to the standard media. Submission Radio (SBN partner!) gets a cameo! Atta boys!
Romero and Paulo Costa face off. Both are confident. Nate Diaz didn’t show up, so Pettis just stands there with Dana. He says Nate is probably the most popular guy he’s fought, but isn’t up there skill-wise. He points out a few of Nate’s losses. White thanks him for coming.
DC and Miocic say the standard stuff. The face-off is cordial.
And that’s it! UFC 241 goes down later today in Anaheim.
