UFC 260 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 third episode for this weekend’s huge show in Vegas, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start off in Stipe Miocic’s room. They have to strap up a light fixture so they don’t hit their head on it while working out. A lot of people are talking at the same time and laughing.
Over at McCarran airport, we finally get a look at some other fighters on the card outside of the headliner. Vicente Luque arrives from Brazil, and says it’s colder in Vegas than home but he likes it. Tyron Woodley is arriving too. He’s focused on his performance in the cage. He’s looking to rebound.
Suga Sean O’Malley arrives as well. It’s the first time he’s actually flown into Vegas, he usually drives. He goes to the hotel with his team and talks a lot about the similarities to the Eddie Wineland fight, where he won via brutal KO.
We look in at Xtreme Couture. Dewey Cooper is talking up Francis Ngannou. Jake Shields! He’s working BJJ with Ngannou, and he’s freaked out by Ngannou’s athleticism. He wants to work with him more. Cooper takes a front kick with full pads on and is still knocked into the cage wall.
Miocic does media. After the interview is over, he starts grilling a coach about dropping a rather loud fart during the interview. He thinks Stipe is kidding at first, but he says he’s serious. The guy starts apologizing and Stipe immediately starts laughing. Solid troll game, that was funny. “That was AWESOME!”
And that’s it! UFC 260 goes down Saturday night in Sin City.
