This is it. Today is fight day and the fourth episode of UFC “Embedded” includes footage that’s been shot in the last couple of days, including clips of yesterday’s weigh-ins.
The beginning of the episode features some interesting footage of Conor McGregor as he walks along the beaches of sunny Rio de Janeiro. The dynamic striker comes up on a Capoeira circle and McGregor jumps right in there. Now that’s how you increase your fanbase no?
You can check out the episode below.
Tonight’s card will be hosted by the Ginásio do Maracanãzinho in Rio de Janeiro, and will feature featherweight champ Jose Aldo taking on Chad Mendes. The event will also see Glover Teixeira take on fellow light-heavyweight contender Phil Davis.
UFC 179 may not feature many all-star fights, but the main event is certainly huge, and there’s some other interesting match-ups as well.
