UFC 232 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 second episode for this weekend’s big show in Vegas...wait no, California, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start at the Performance Institute in Vegas, where Alexander Gustafsson is doing media. He then does a conference call with opponent Jon Jones. After they hang up, Gustafsson remarks that when Jones talks, it sounds like a love story.
Over at Amanda Nunes’ house in Florida, she gets a massage and says that she can eat more than usual since she’s fighting at 145 this time. Nina Ansaroff talks about Nunes and the fight.
In California, we get a look into Cyborg’s gym again. Jason Parillo talks about her having to use male sparring partners, and that she has knocked out a few of them. Cyborg then chills in a big cage with her cats, saying that she would have become a vet if she wasn’t a fighter.
We head over into New Mexico and JacksonWink Academy. Jon Jones is trying to a get a Russian teammate to dance to some Bob Marley. Jones is really into it before he spars. Greg Jackson speaks about Jones’ preparation. Jones says he will respect Gustafsson’s boxing this time.
Back to Vegas. Gus is hanging out with boxing champion Badou Jack at his house. They have been friends for a long time, so the whole time has dinner and watches some boxing. They throw some boxing belts on The Mauler for a photo op. They then trick Gustafsson and Ilir Latifi into standing for a goofy pose.
And that’s it! UFC 232 now goes down in The Forum in Inglewood, California this Saturday night.
