UFC 230 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 and final episode for this weekend’s big show in New York City, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
Things start off with Derrick Lewis, who talks again about fighting for his family. To give them a better life. Meanwhile, Chris Weidman is cutting weight on an exercise machine with his wife and kids nearby.
Early weigh-ins time. Weidman makes 186. Jacare Souza makes 185.4. Derrick Lewis thinks he might be over, so he takes some more time. Daniel Cormier comes in at 251.2. Lewis comes back and hits 264.6.
Cormier talks about Lewis’ size and that just wrestling him isn’t going to work. He meets Amanda Nunes and Alexander Gustafsson before the UFC 232 press conference, and tells Gus to do his thing against Jon Jones. Weidman and Cormier get some MSG swag too.
Ceremonial weigh-ins. Derek Brunson and Israel Adesanya square off. They’re fairly heated. Jacare and Weidman are cool. Cormier and Lewis are tense but respectful. Cormier’s pants are still incredibly high though.
And that’s it. UFC 230 goes down in just a couple of hours at MSG!
