UFC 242 video: Embedded, part 2 - ‘You have to eat 20,000 calories in one day’

Check out the second episode of Embedded for UFC 242.

UFC 242 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 second episode for this weekend’s big show in the Abu Dhabi, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.

We start things off with Khabib and his team working with his dad. His talks about his credo for training, and Javier Mendez is very complimentary of the elder Nurmagomedov as well. It’s the first UFC fight his dad has been able to come to.

Paul Felder is working out with his team at a gym in Abu Dhabi. He’s training seven rounds at a time. Belal Muhammad talks about the 20,000 calorie challenge.

Back at the hotel, Dustin Poirier and Mike Brown are watching tape with other coaches. It’s an old Khabib fight, against Gleison Tibau. They discuss his wrestling. Poirier eats a pineapple, but not too quickly.

Edson Barboza is at a different hotel, sparring and cutting weight. He feels good. Felder comes in and they hug, all respect. It doesn’t bother either man to see each other.

And that’s it! UFC 242 goes down this Saturday morning in Abu Dhabi.
