UFC 225 Embedded Episode 5 – Time to jump on the scales

UFC 225 Embedded

UFC 225 Embedded Episode 5 is here.

UFC 225 Embedded episode five is out and it’s fight day! We see fighters preparing to hit the scales and make weight for this amazing event. The main event is in jeopardy when Yoel Romero fails to make weight for the second time, in two title shots. It’s almost impossible to believe that he could miss twice for world title opportunities.

From the UFC YouTube

“On Episode 5 of UFC 225 Embedded, a star-studded media day includes middleweight champion Robert Whittaker, opponent Yoel Romero and former titleholders Holly Holm, Rafael Dos Anjos, Andrei Arlovski, Rashad Evans and Carla Esparza. UFC 225’s athletes — including CM Punk, Tai Tuivasa, Megan Anderson, Sergio Pettis, Charles Oliveira, Colby Covington and Mike Jackson — talk to media and stare down their opponents.

Afterward, Punk offers a backstage peek at the United Center, and Anderson begins her weight cut. On Friday morning all fighters make weight except for one, leaving the event’s headliner in jeopardy.  But all parties make it to the ceremonial weigh-in, where UFC President Dana White confirms that Whittaker and Romero will indeed rematch.

UFC 225 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two world title fights on Saturday, June 9th on Pay-Per-View.”

Welp, the early weigh-ins are done for UFC 225, but it wasn’t without some high drama. One half of the main event, Yoel Romero, missed championship weight on his first attempt. Guess what? He missed weight on his second try, too. Incredible.

Episode 2 of UFC 225’s Embedded. Whittaker, Tai, Colby, Yoel, Dos Anjos

embedded-whittaker-tai-colby-yoel-dos-anjos

UFC Embedded episode two is out and we are that much closer to UFC 225. This episode features Tai Tuavasa, Robert Whittaker, Colby Covington, Rafael Dos Anjos, and Yoel Romero. These Embedded vids are funny because even though they focus on the fighters, there are always cameos from other fighters and even bigger stars. In this case, Cris Cyborg.

From the UFC YouTube

“On Episode 2 of UFC 225 Embedded, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker keeps things normal with frequent meals and family time.

Australian heavyweight Tai Tuivasa, in town to fight legend Andrei Arlovski, struggles to understand the still waters of the Lake Michigan beach.

Interim welterweight title contender Colby Covington turns a media trip into father-son bonding time, as opponent Rafael Dos Anjos trains alongside featherweight champion Cris Cyborg.

Middleweight title challenger Yoel Romero does press in New York City.”

Episode 1 of UFC Embedded. Chi Town edition for UFC 225

episode-chi-town-edition

UFC 225 will come to us live from Chi Town this weekend. Chicago will host UFC 225 in one of the most stacked cards that we’ve ever seen in the UFC. Embedded begins like it always does, one week before fight night before everyone even comes to town. Everyone except Rober Whittaker who is acclimating to the time change.

Noticeably missing from the Embedded is Whittaker’s opponent, Yoel Romero. Noticeably oversaturating the Embedded, is Colby Covington. Each time he says something where you think he may have dropped his act, he comes right back and shows that he’s still pretending. On the opposite side of the spectrum is Rafael Dos Anjos, who couldn’t be more respectful and a class act.

Check out the competitors as they gear up a week before UFC 225.
