UFC 256 video: Embedded, part 1 - ‘I am a ferocious animal’

Check out the first episode of Embedded for UFC 256.

UFC 256 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 the Performance Institute with flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo. He can make history for the quickest two title defenses if he beats Brandon Moreno. He knows Moreno is going through the same thing, as he fought at UFC 255 as well. His team doesn’t see much quality in Moreno’s game, but they won’t underestimate him.

Moreno is staying at his manager’s house in Vegas. His wife describes how they met. Moreno talks about his journey in and out and back into the UFC on the way to the title fight. When he wins on Satuday, him and his manager are going to every good restaurant in town on the Sunday.

Figueiredo is at a barber shop. He said he used to be a hair stylist (??) and knows the environment. He wants to own a salon one day. Wallid Ismail says something no one understands, as usual. Figueiredo loved Jose Aldo as a fan, and is surprised to be on the same path as Aldo was.

Moreno goes suit shopping. He basically picks the first thing he tries on. He gets a mask to match the suit, which is amusing.

And that’s it! UFC 256 goes down this Saturday night in Vegas.
