UFC 240 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 first episode for this weekend’s big show in Edmonton, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start things off at the Edmonton airport with UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway. He’s an honorary Canadian. He walks into the hotel and sees a box that says “Blessed” on it. He says he had one of his best camps ever, and he’s ready for Frankie Edgar.
Down in New Jersey, Edgar is preparing for the fight along with former UFC fighter Eddie Alvarez. Coach Mark Henry leads a prayer. Back at his house, Edgar and his kids are playing in the pool. He talks about fighting not being a 9-5 job so he’s home with his children a lot during the day.
Down in Florida, Felicia Spencer is excited to be fighting a legend in Cris Cyborg. She’s apparently featured on a foot fetish website, which she finds amusing.
Holloway is at West Edmonton Mall and comes across a car show. He checks out a green Dodge Viper that he loves. He then goes candy shopping and is marking out over Canadian candy he’s never seen before. He spends 113 dollars there. Wow.
And that’s it! UFC 240 goes down at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta this Saturday night.
