UFC 249 video: Embedded, part 5 - ‘I love catching sunsets’

Check out the fifth episode of Embedded for UFC 249.

UFC 249 is almost here (finally), 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 fifth episode for this weekend’s big show in Jacksonville, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.

Michelle Waterson and her husband FaceTime with their children. This is the first fight Waterson hasn’t been able to bring her daughter to. She jokes around about being 130 pounds, and having 15 to cut.

Henry Cejudo and his team head out to check out the sunset. Justin Gaethje jokes around a bit, and his coach talks about him having fun but putting in the hard work too. Dominick Cruz is cutting weight and talking about wanting a glass of water. His team does a “shot” while Dom is running on a treadmill.

Weigh-ins time. A different setup to space everyone out. Cruz hits 135. Gaethje is 155. Cejudo is 135 on the dot. Tony Ferguson is 155. He puts his sunglasses on. Jairzinho Rozenstruik is 260. Francis Ngannou is 261.5. They all do the faceoffs. It’s mostly pretty relaxed. Cejudo talks a bit, but doesn’t get a response at first. Cruz waits till he walks away before talking.

And that’s it! UFC 249 goes down tonight in Jacksonville.
