UFC 265 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 first 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 at American Top Team with Pedro Munhoz, who is preparing for Jose Aldo. He has to get through the former champ and weather Aldo’s aggressiveness to move onto a title shot.

We move down to Houston, where Ciryl Gane is arriving at the airport. The interim title shot was a surprise but he’s going to make the most of it. Later on, Vicente Luque arrives as well. He thinks the winner of his fight with Michael Chiesa will enter the top three at 170 and be in contention for a title fight.

We stay in Houston where Derrick Lewis is wrapping the hard part of his camp. Lewis feels like he’s in shape but it’s more of a mental game for him. He doesn’t know how he’ll win, but he believes that he will.

Jose Aldo is arriving in Houston now. He says he has adjusted to his new division well and that his weight cut to 135 is actually easier than it was to 145. He wants another belt.

TopGolf now, with Gane. He talks about the origins of his nickname. He’s having fun at the driving range. His coach says Gane may be stronger him, but he’s the better golfer. Neither will be pro golfers any time soon though.

And that’s it! UFC 265 goes down this Saturday in Houston.
