UFC 238 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 show in Chicago, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start off with Tai Tuivasa, who has stolen a shopping cart from Whole Foods in Chicago. Okay then. His buddy gets inside and Tuivasa wheels him past a bar, where people come out to dance with them. He has a female rapper do her thing for the camera. He’s having a good time as always.
Back at the hotel, Marlon Moraes is jogging. Jessica Eye’s flight was delayed so she was one of the last fighters at the hotel. She’s getting a massage, then heads out to the open workouts. Henry Cejudo won’t stop talking about his gold medal, as usual. He does his workout in front of the fans. He’s attempting to be inspirational to the crowd.
Valentina Shevchenko is next. She does her customary show with her sister. Tony Ferguson signs the wall, then comes out for his workout. The crowd is into his dancing. Moraes is next. He says he’s gonna put on a show. Jessica Eye tries to get the crowd to chant her mantra thing. It’s tepid at best.
Finally it’s Donald Cerrone time. He says he’s not gonna dance. But he’s excited for the fight. He’s asked if he wins, would he rather have a title shot or Conor McGregor? Cowboy says Conor had his chance - he’s taking the title shot.
And that’s it! UFC 238 goes down Saturday night in The Windy City.
