The countdown continues for UFC 188, and as a result, a second “Embedded” episode for this Saturday’s card has gone up.
As you almost certainly know, the June 13th event will feature the return of heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, who will take on interim champ, Fabricio Werdum. If you’re not excited about this fight, well, chances are you’re not going to find too many people who share that opinion…
In the latest “Embedded” segment, the cameras capture Werdum predicting that Saturday’s headliner will be the “fight of the century”. Now sure, that’s a pretty high bar to set in terms of expectations, but we are talking about a scrap between two, ridiculously athletic and well rounded heavyweights.
The episode also shows Werdum and Kelvin Gastelum watching “Vai Cavalo’s”stoppage win over Mark Hunt, and it’s interesting to see the interim champ break down the fight ending, flying knee.
The cameras also catch up with Velasquez, as he does some training. In addition, the show includes appearances from lightweight contenders Eddie Alvarez and Gilbert Melendez, who will throw down in the co-headliner.
You can watch the segment below.
UFC 188 will be hosted by the Mexico City Arena.
