UFC 208 Embedded, part 5 - ‘I couldn’t punch for s—t’

Check out episode five of UFC 208 Embedded.

UFC 208 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 fifth episode for this weekend’s big show in Brooklyn. This part looks at the open workouts and the weigh-ins.

You can check out part one here, part two here, part three here, and part four here.

This episode starts with some snow. Germaine de Randamie and her crew head out to play in it, engaging in a good ol’ snowball fight. They then move over to a Brooklyn boxing gym for the open workouts, where a small but boisterous crowd has braved the snowstorm to come check it out.

Next up is Holly Holm and Glover Teixeira in the sauna, talking about Holm’s roots as a kickboxer before she was boxing. GDR does a light workout, and gets prepared for weigh-ins the next day. Derek Brunson is in the pool, and who’s there to help him? Free agent David Branch. That could be an omen.

A brief segment with Anderson Silva plays out, and then it’s morning weigh-in time. Spoiler - everyone makes weight.

UFC 208 goes down February 11th in Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
