UFC 224 video: Embedded, part 3 - ‘If I lay down, I won’t get back up’

Check out the third episode of Embedded for UFC 224.

UFC 224 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 Brazil, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.

Amanda Nunes goes to the mall with Nina Ansaroff to get her hair and eyebrows done. She’s happy. Kelvin Gastelum drives by the arena where he fights Ronaldo Souza on the weekend.

Jacare is in the hotel gym, working out. He works on his boxing and wrestling, and says the exercise was to shake off the jet lag (since his camp was in the US). Amanda Cooper is doing something similar, working out light. Her coach talks about derailing Mackenzie Dern’s hype train and it being a good fight for Cooper.

We get out first look at Vitor Belfort - and his service animal. I’ll never get over the idea of a UFC fighter needing a service animal.

Dern missed her flight the day before, but is happy to be in Brazil. She is so tired that she knows if she lays down on her hotel bed, she’s going to fall asleep. So she doesn’t.

And that’s it! UFC 224 goes down this Saturday night in Rio.
