UFC 185 Video: Embedded, Ep 3 - There's a new Burt Watson in town

Watch the third episode of UFC 185 Embedded.

UFC 185 features a stacked main card this Saturday, including two title fights, an exciting welterweight scrap between former champion Johny Hendricks and Matt Brown, as well as a heavyweight clash between Alistair Overeem and Roy Nelson.

In the third episode of UFC 185 Embedded, both the main event fighter arrived in Dallas, Texas for fight week. The day doesn't start very pleasing for lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, though. The bag with his training gear is missing when he arrives at the airport. Good news is: The weight-cut is going according to plan, two days before the official weigh-ins he tips the scale at 169-pounds, his brother Sergio at 135-pounds.

The interesting part is that pre-checking a fighter's weight has always been the job of Burt Watson, the famed and loved Site Coordinator and "babysitter to the stars" who left the UFC over a dispute a week ago. In this episode, you can see the new Burt Watson work a little bit of his magic.

Johny Hendricks also arrives on the scene with his personal "toy," basically a kind of Monster truck on steroids. A car so big that the former champion had a hard time reaching out the window and down to the parking ticket vending machine.

Funny stuff. Watch the video above.
