The UFC usually puts out a five or six-part Embedded series before every pay-per-view to get fans acquainted with the participants in the top fights and let people see what fight week is like. This time, they’re going to do it for their homegrown superstar Conor McGregor, who is set to take on Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a huge boxing match on August 26th.
It starts with Mayweather doing some media, basically saying that the talking is over and it’s time to fight. McGregor is at the UFC Performance Institute with his crew, conducting his weight cut. Artem Lobov talks to Dana White about his McGregor t-shirts. White then tells McGregor who is coming in to sing the Irish national anthem.
White then tries to do a phone interview with McGregor next to him, but Conor is distracted by “some penis”. Everyone has a good laugh. Dana says he’s so excited for the fight that he’s sick to his stomach.
Mayweather shows off some of his cars at his house. He makes a point again that he owns them, and doesn’t rent them like McGregor. He then shows off his ring gear for major fights, saying someone stole his ring jacket from the Pacquiao fight. Now it’s watches he’s got on display.
He closes it off talking about Paulie Malignaggi, implying that Paulie can give him some insight.
And that’s how it closes.
Mayweather and McGregor head to the ring tomorrow night, August 26th, in Las Vegas.
