Check out the sixth episode of Embedded for UFC 263.
UFC 263 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 and final 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 in the pool with Israel Adesanya. His coach says he’s winning the mental war with Marvin Vettori already.
Leon Edwards has been in camp for a long time, and he’s ready to fight. Brandon Moreno admits that he was angry when Deiveson Figueiredo pushed him at the weigh-ins, but he sluffed it off no problem and is still in a great mood.
Weigh-ins time. Moreno and Vettori talk a bit. Moreno weighs in first. 125. Vettori is 184.5. Adesanya is a light 183.5. Figueiredo is the last person to weigh in, but he makes 125. Wallid Ismail is pumped.
Ceremonial weigh-ins now. Adesanya gets a Coyotes jersey. Joe Rogan is here. Edwards, Figueiredo, and Vettori gets mixed reactions for the crowd. They all face off respectfully. Vettori wants that belt. It’s Israel’s time to shine.
Let’s go! UFC 263 goes down in a few short hours in Phoenix.
