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 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.
We start things off in Denver, where Rose Namajunas is prepping to fly to Brazil (via Atlanta). They play some hackey sack while they wait. Rose says she’s not a big sightseer but wants to check out the Jesus statue in Rio.
Jessica Andrade is situated at the hotel and doing some training. Jose Aldo is still doing his at the Upper Arena. His coach talks about Aldo being better than opponent Alexander Volkanovski everywhere.
Volkanovski talks a bit over his win over Chad Mendes. He thinks there are similarities between Mendes and Aldo, but he’s just worried about himself. He’s preparing for the weight cut.
Jared Cannonier arrived in Brazil. He said that when he travels, something always goes wrong. His kid and dog are sick, and the airline lost his bag. That sucks.
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira makes his first appearance, filming an Andrade promo on his phone. Andrade goofs around a bit with their fight poster on the wall. Namajunas watches a tape of her fight with Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
Anderson Silva shows up to sign some posters and warmly greets the fellow Brazilians there. Aldo meets some fans and checks in, then goes to the poster room. Raoni Barcelos thanks Aldo for everything he’s done for him. Silva then clowns around with the staff while waiting for his car out front of the hotel.
And that’s it! UFC 237 goes down Saturday night in Rio.
