UFC 242 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 big show in the Abu Dhabi, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
We start off with Dustin Poirier, who is getting fitted for a kandora. They take his measurements. Mike Brown is confused. Poirier shows a cute video of his daughter singing a song that he taught her.
Ceremonial weigh-ins time. Claudia Gadelha and Henry Cejudo are there to greet fans, as is new champ Weili Zhang. Paul Felder thinks the weather outside is tolerable. “It’s not that bad, like 120?”. Khabib Nurmagomedov is happy to eat and drink.
Davi Ramos and Islam Makhachev stare down respectfully. Felder and Edson Barboza do as well. Then it’s Poirier and Khabib. Poirier gets a mixed reception from the crowd. Khabib gets a huge cheer, and they face off. Khabib smiles a bit. They both say they’re going to make history tomorrow.
And just like that, UFC 242 is upon us!
