Another episode of “Embedded” for UFC Fight Night 80 is up, and yes, once again, it’s heavy on the Sage Northcutt content.
Case in point, in Episode Five, cameras follow Northcutt as he opens some gifts from fans, and decorates the Christmas tree with his family. Now, if you’ve watched other episodes for this card, then you know Northcutt has been featured a lot. Cody Pfister, who Northcutt is fighting, has also been filmed a fair amount as well.
Now, since Northcutt’s 19, 6-0, and viewed as a top prospect, this isn’t surprising, but others have been wondering, ‘hey, what about Jim Miller and Michael Cheisa?’ Who haven’t made an appearance yet, despite the fact they’re throwing down in the co-headliner. In fact, Mr. Chiesa himself recently tweeted out the following comments regarding this:
I've been in Vegas for 3 weeks, 20 minutes from UFC HQ but they fly to Texas for Pfister. https://t.co/2g84iLnmLa

Now if you look at Chiesa’s Twitter feed, then you’ll see he’s retweeted comments from others who are asking why the lightweight vets have yet to be shown. Miller, after all, is about to fight in his 21st bout with the UFC. Clearly glossing over Miller-Chiesa is irking some folks.
All this aside, Episode Five also catches up with Northcutt’s opponent, Cody Pfister, as well as headliners Paige VanZant and Rose Namajunas. You can catch it below.
UFC FN 80 will take place at the Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas on December 10th.
