UFC 255 video: Embedded, part 1 - ‘Our confidence is enormous’

New, 1 comment

Check out the first episode of Embedded for UFC 255.

UFC 255 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 UFC Apex, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.

We start off at manager Jason House’s...house. With Brandon Moreno. He really likes cookies. Moreno says that his last fight ended too late so he couldn’t go get fast food, but now he has a personal chef - House’s wife, Alyssa. They watch the fights and chat. Moreno doesn’t want to be separated from his wife and kids, but he’s willing to sacrifice so he can stay focused. Right as he says that, Khaos Williams drops Abdul Razak Alhassan and they all freak out.

We move over to the Vegas airport, and witness Deiveson Figueiredo arriving in Sin City for the very first time. He’s not even out of the airport yet and he already loves it. He jumps in his limo for the ride to the hotel, and says two simple words in English - “Let’s go.”

Now we’re at Valentina Shevchenko’s house in Vegas. She shows the camera a book of photos of her travels. She talks a bit about her sister, Antonina as well. This is the first time they’ve fought on the same card in MMA.

In another part of Vegas, Cynthia Calvillo is walking her dog. Who is her best friend. She talks up her opponent, Katlyn Chookagian. She’s expecting a striker vs. grappler battle. She believes that she will be in the Octagon with Valentina down the road.

Wallid Ismail is talking up his fighter, Figueiredo, as the champ runs on a treadmill. He’s been training for four months to fight. It’s a classic Wallid interview, which means it doesn’t make a lot of sense. But they’re both confident.

And that’s it! UFC 255 goes down this weekend in Vegas.
