UFC 264 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 third episode for this weekend’s huge show in Arizona, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start off with Stephen Thompson, who is on his way to Vegas. He thinks Gilbert Burns is a great matchup for him. He takes some pics with fan in DFW while connecting. He says that the “nice” label he has is true, even in the cage. He’s excited to be back in Vegas, and in front of fans again.
Up in Burns’ room. He talks up his team. Recovery from training is important to him. Dustin Poirier enters the hotel to sign posters. Wonderboy is in there already, and they greet each other warmly.
Tai Tuivasa arrives in Vegas. He’s looking for a pool party after a long flight. Sean O’Malley arrives as well. He does some media on the Schmozone. He’s learned a lot from Conor McGregor. Kris Moutinho, O’Malley’s debuting opponent, is jazzed to be signing posters. Jerome Rivera is there as well, and they talk about getting the call for their debuts. Moutinho wants fight of the night.
Thompson is done media, and he’s playing a mobile zombie game. He talks it up like he’s being paid to promote it. Jorge Masvidal is playing ping pong with Mike Brown as Poirier does media. Poirier greets Gambred, and they talk strategy. Masvidal said he heard Conor’s in great shape.
And that’s it! UFC 264 goes down this Saturday night in Vegas.
