UFC 237 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 Brazil, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start off with Anderson Silva, who is cutting weight. They describe a bit of the process. Anderson jokes around, as usual. Opponent Jared Cannonier is playing video games. He got his bag back finally! A happy ending no matter what.
Weigh-in time. Alexander Volkanovski is 145.5. Jessica Andrade is 114.5 (with a towel). So is Thug Rose. Jose Aldo makes it too, again with a towel. Andre Pederneiras says it’s time to eat, drink, fight, and eat some more.
Andrade talks about the card and being in the main event. B.J. Penn again is hanging out with Nova Uniao teammate Aldo. Now the ceremonial weigh-ins. Same stuff as before, no drama with the staredowns. Andrade gives Namajunas a rose, and they hug.
It’s on. UFC 237 goes down in a couple of hours in Rio.
