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 sixth 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 with Beneil Dariush, who is cutting weight. Bath, sauna, bath, sauna. They move right to the official weigh-ins. First fighter to the scale is Charles Oliveira. 155. Next up is Michael Chandler. 155 as well. Tony Ferguson is up. 156. Dariush now. He needs the halo, and he’s 156.5. He is allotted an hour to lose the final half-pound.
He comes back, and makes it. He said he just had to break a sweat again after a quick bath and he was good to go.
Chandler’s dad is there. They goof around. His dad is wearing UFC gear. Oliveira said he made weight the day before, which he likes to do. He sits down with Jacare Souza, who says that Oliveira always wins when they fight on the same card.
Ceremonial weigh-ins now. Chuck Liddell is there to greet Tony Ferguson, and says that he’s a good dude and they’ve known each other a long time. Dariush and El Cucuy do their thing, and face off respectably. Chandler and Oliveira’s staredown is respectful but intense as hell.
