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 fifth 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.
We start off in Katlyn Chookagian’s room, who is doing a light workout. Sijara Eubanks is there with her. Charles Oliveira is in the lobby, taking pics with fans. One actually contacted him though Instagram, and was shocked he responded. And even more shocked that he actually came down to the lobby of the hotel to meet him. I like that, that’s pretty cool of him.
He explains another fan interaction where someone messaged him on Instagram cursing him out for beating Tony Ferguson. He responded nicely, and the person apologized to him.
Over in Michael Chandler’s room, he’s doing a light workout as a part of his weight cut. Back in Oliveira’s room, Jorge Patino is marveling at his BJJ creativity. Oliveira actually got his BJJ black belt in Houston, and now he believes that he will get the UFC belt there too.
Press conference time. Big crowd. Chandler says that Oliveira is the most dangerous guy he’s faced. At the first mention of Khabib, Tony Ferguson calls him a b-tch. El Cucuy then turns the chirping towards opponent Beneil Dariush, who seems amused. He tries to be respectful answering questions, but Ferguson is saying outlandish things as usual.
Face-off time. Oliveira and Ferguson embrace first, and Oliveira gives him some advice. Ferguson picks him up and they laugh and hug. Ferguson and Dariush shake hands, and it’s pretty chill. Oliveira and Chandler do too, but it’s a bit more intense.
UFC 262 goes down tomorrow night in Houston.
