UFC 246 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 Vegas, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start off at the early weigh-ins. Donald Cerrone is 170, and relaxed. Raquel Pennington is 136. Anthony Pettis is 155.5. He said he did his own cut, made his own food. He said he was ballooning up over 200 pounds between fights. But he’s good to go this time. Diego Ferreira is 155.5, as his kid yells “go daddy!”. Cute. Holly Holm is 135.5.
Conor McGregor shows up with his usual entourage. He sees the Proper 12 on the bar counter and is happy. He wants to have a big breakfast. He’s very upbeat as he weighs in at 170. He’s back in the car, and gone.
Now it’s ceremonial weigh-in time. Cowboy shows up. Jorge Masvidal gets a big cheer as he shows up. The crowd goes nuts for Conor arriving with his son. Huge turnout inside the building. Holm and Pennington square off. Cerrone gets a big cheer when he comes out, as Joe Rogan sings his praises on the mic. McGregor skips out onto the stage. and strips down for the scale. Him and Cowboy shake hands, then square up. Cowboy smiles. Both men are ready to fight. McGregor apologizes for being a bit late.
And that’s it! UFC 246 goes down tonight in Vegas.
