UFC 226 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 fourth episode for this weekend’s big supershow in Vegas, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
Stipe Miocic is working at at Xtreme Couture, and goofing around as usual. He busts out some Michael Jackson dancing, then does the worm. Over to the hotel with Daniel Cormier, who is signing stuff for fans. He goes and meets a couple of kids that are huge fans of his. They get to watch him work out.
Next up is the open workouts. Cormier is confident that the only way Miocic can win is via KO. While DC cut a big promo for the crowd and a had a lot to say, Stipe just had one statement - “And still”.
At the UFC Performance Institute, Derrick Lewis is working out and his coach talks about how many pads he’s busted.
Now we’re off to Syndicate, where Michael Chiesa is preparing for a fight with Anthony Pettis. They acknowledge at the end of the episode that Max Holloway is out of his fight with Brian Ortega due to a suspected concussion. Chiesa wishes him the best. He then talks about his friendship with teammate Francis Ngannou, and compares them to Mel Gibson and Danny Glover from Lethal Weapon.
And that’s it! UFC 226 goes down tomorrow night in Vegas.
