UFC 245 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 Sin City, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start off at the PI with Alexander Volkanovski. He does a workout with middleweight champ Israel Adesanya looking on. The team all take a pic in the cage.
Early weigh-ins time. Mike Perry says he watched Quintet on Fight Pass. Max Holloway is 145 on the dot. Kamaru Usman is 170. Germaine de Randamie is 134.5. Volkanovski is 144.5. Urijah Faber goes over and hugs Jose Aldo while they wait to weigh in. Amanda Nunes is 134.5. Colby Covington comes in with security, talking about Trump as usual. He’s 170.
Up in Holloway’s room, there are cupcakes everywhere. He’s very ready to eat them. Instead, he eats rice and talks about a pair of underwear that he’s had since he was 16.
Ceremonial weigh-ins. Usman gets his face painted. Volkanovski and Holloway face off with respect. Covington receives a mixed response when he comes out. Usman is cheered. Covington talks some smack about the face paint and his hairline. Usman just nods.
And that’s it! UFC 245 goes down in a few short hours in the T-Mobile Arena.
