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 sixth and final 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 things off with Francis Ngannou, who has apparently never listened to James Brown before. Kamaru Usman is there, and thinks he knows everything already. He’s fine with just being the water boy if that’s what Ngannou needs. Usman can’t wait to see Ngannou claim gold.
Sean O’Malley is working out in his room and has begun his weight cut. His coach says he has a championship mentality, and there are two goals - make weight, then win.
Vicente Luque is ready to cut weight. He works out with Gilbert Burns and then jumps in the spongebob sauna. Over in Stipe Miocic’s room, he’s playing cards with his teammates. He jokes about cutting weight (he obviously doesn’t have to), but knows what it’s like because he used to have to do it for wrestling back in the day.
Weigh-ins time. Stipe is 234, lighter than the last fight. Ngannou is 263. Luque is 170.5. Tyron Woodley is 171. Sean Shelby squares guys off to stare down. O’Malley and Thomas Almeida are intense but respectful. Woodley and Luque square off, then Miocic and Ngannou. They shake hands, and that’s that.
UFC 260 is just a few short hours away on PPV!
