UFC 213 video: Embedded, part 3 - ‘Werdum failed, I’m coming for you’

New, comments

Check out episode three of Embedded for UFC 213.

UFC 213 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 Vegas, and it serves as a brief introduction to the four fighters that make up the top of the card. You are also introduced to some other fighters on the PPV.

UFC women’s strawweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko starts things off in the production office, doing a photo shoot and filming some promo videos talking about the fight. Back at the hotel, she’s stealing more tea (she does that everywhere).

The show takes an amusing turn as Amanda Nunes and girlfriend Nina Ansaroff head off to the Stratosphere to see their coach, Din Thomas, do a stand-up comedy show. There’s a lot of dancing and clothes being taken off. Yeah.

At the Performance Institute, we get our first look at Fabricio Werdum (with a guest cameo by Kelvin Gastelum). He shows off some fancy equipment at the institute before hitting the cafe. Of course, he had to show off the Werdum troll face as well.

It still makes me laugh every time.

They watch a video of opponent Alistair Overeem doing an interview on his phone, and he amusingly sticks a grape on top of Overeem’s face.

Overeem arrives in Vegas, and shows some footage from the explosion right next to where he was saying. He looks at the camera and says “Werdum failed, I’m coming for you” with a smile. Decent line.

Yoel Romero meets Overeem on his way out of the production office as he goes in, before Romero does a little dance for the assembled media. Romero and Robert Whittaker do some posing with their respective flags for the cameras.

Then it’s open workouts time. Nunes does some goofy stuff with Michael Bisping and Kenny Florian beforehand. All the top stars get some shine on the mat and in front of the media. Shevchenko does a dance before her workout. Romero was ridiculously ripped.

UFC 213 goes down Saturday, July 8th in Las Vegas.
