UFC 261 video: Embedded, part 1 - ‘You have to be yourself’

New, 1 comment

Check out the first episode of Embedded for UFC 261.

UFC 261 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 Jacksonville, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.

We start up in Colorado with Kamaru Usman and Trevor Wittman. Wittman isn’t sure what else Masvidal can bring to a second fight. He says that Usman hasn’t plateaued yet. Justin Gaethje is there, and he’s happy that the fans will be back. Usman feels good. He’s talking to fellow UFC 261 fighter Rose Namajunas. Wittman says it can be tough to be 100% focused when he has more than one fighter on a card, but it will take some focus.

Over at Thug Rose’s house, she takes an ice bath outside as Pat Barry explains why this is a thing. Her cat comes over to check it out. Her dog jumps in after she gets out. They then head to a salon to get their nails done.

Things quickly go over to Gaethje’s house where Usman and some teammates are watching last weekend’s UFC event. Then back to Rose’s place where she’s watching the same thing. They show an ad for UFC 261, and she’s stoked.

Down in Jacksonville, Weili Zhang is arriving. She was training in Tallahassee.

And that’s it! UFC 261 goes down this Saturday night in Florida.
