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 fourth 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 of at the Newport Beach residence of a certain Notorious one, Conor McGregor. He’s about to go for a bike ride. As he’s riding, he passes by Mike Tyson’s house. He says he’s only met him a couple of times before and would love to talk to him more. People honk and cheer at Conor as they recognize him. There’s a group of people that he passes, all with their phones out, chanting his name as he passes by. Seems staged.
They enter his gym and he’s talking up their innovative things in there while bantering with others. Nice sales pitch. He says he’s had a good hard camp. He likes doing some training out of the desert. He discusses why he still fights - because he loves to do it. He’s excited and ready. The team takes a pic together.
That took up two-thirds of the episode.
Finally they move on to Sean O’Malley arriving at UFC Apex. He does some media and the standard photoshoot. Stephen Thompson gets his own robe. It’s a NMF robe - Nicest...you can figure it out. Gilbert Burns does media. We get our first look at Greg Hardy, which I will not describe because I refuse to cover him in any way, shape, or form.
Dustin Poirier runs into Gilbert Burns and they greet each other. Michael Bisping interviews Poirier, who says all the pressure is on Conor.
And that’s it! UFC 264 goes down this Saturday night in Vegas.
