UFC 247 video: Embedded, part 4 - ‘I’m like a young Jon Jones’

Check out the fourth episode of Embedded for UFC 247.

UFC 247 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 fourth episode for this weekend’s big show in Houston, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.

We start with Katlyn Chookagian, who is off to a Houston Rockets game. She has to shoot a free throw, and things do not go well. She’s better at fighting than basketball, she says.

Dominick Reyes is at a jewelry store. He likes nice things. Back at the hotel, Jon Jones is at the breakfast buffet and he’s excited for media day. But only because he wants to see the stupid stuff Reyes is going to say. His weight is low so he’s eating more than normal.

Chookagian is at the salon. Valentina Shevchenko is training. A training partner speaks about working on her ground game and how hard she works.

Reyes says he’s been studying him for a long time. He respects him, but he knows there’s not enough tape on himself for Jones to be fully prepared for him. He thinks he’s a young Jon Jones.

Jones meets Shevchenko and her sister. He does some push-ups before a photoshoot. Jones wants to set records that no one can beat. Him and Shevchenko do a shoot.

Back in the hotel room, Jones reads some quotes that he likes. He puts them around his room and workout rooms. Brandon Gibson says they’ve watched enough tape to know Reyes. Jones watches some tape on his own and discusses it. Gibson says he likes to counter and has good killer instinct. But Jones can deal.

And that’s it! UFC 247 goes down Saturday night in Houston.
