UFC 262 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 Texas, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
Michael Chandler looks down at the Texas-shaped pool from his room. Chandler hits some pads with Henri Hooft, and talks about the smoothness of Canelo Alvarez and his combinations.
Over in Beneil Dariush’s room, he says that he’s too ugly to be on the fight posters until they had no choice. He’s working some hands too. His wife records his training sessions so Dariush and Rafael Cordeiro can review them. His coach thinks it will be a long night for opponent Tony Ferguson.
We get our first look at Viviane Araujo. Her coach knows that opponent Katlyn Chookagian is a decision fighter that grows stronger as the fight gets longer, so they have to combat that and not get frustrated.
Tony Ferguson tries on the new gloves. He’s working with a different team, including Wildcard Boxing. He says hi to Lando Vannata. He does the customary photoshoot.
Dariush does some media. He has too much chest hair. Valentina Shevchenko drops in, to give her sister Antonina some props. Charles Oliveira knows that Chandler is tough, but he’s worried about himself. He’s always wanted to be recognized, and him and his fans will be emotional when he wins. He goes over and greets Jacare Souza, who is also fighting on the card.
Chandler does an interview. He says he’s dedicated his life to athletics. Chandler says hi to Jamie Pickett and Edson Barboza. He signs some posters and says he waited 13 years to get his face on one like this.
And that’s it! UFC 262 goes down tomorrow night in Houston.
