UFC 217 Embedded: Vlog Series – Episode 2 – Time to fly

It’s time for UFC 217 Embedded Ep 2 – Some fighters arrive in New York.

The episode of UFC 217 Embedded opens with Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt touches down in New York, He does some shopping and relaxes. He says he loves shoes and clothes. When he was younger he got all his clothes from Sears and WalMart so this is something he really enjoys.

TJ Dillashaw is shown picking up his coach Duane Ludwig at the airport. TJ has decided to hold his camp in California and he shows up how important nutrition is to him. He shows how his meals are prepared and laid out for him.  He has special treats as well, like black bean brownies…yikes.

Rose Namajunas is at the gym for her last day of camp. She’s working hard on pads and is wished well by her team as she prepares to fly to New York for the biggest fight of her career. We join her at the barber shop getting her hair cleaned up.

Joanna is also hard at work at the tail-end of training camp. We see Joanna jump on a Delta flight to head to NYC. While on board, Delta announces she is on board, and when she’s fighting. It’s a nice touch.

Middleweight champion Michael Bisping is in the hotel gym running on a treadmill. He says he’d be outside running but it is “Pissing down rain.”  He also says his team is all in their hotel rooms because he doesn’t need cheerleaders to run on a treadmill. Bisping is true to himself at all times. We then see Bisping recording his Podcast, The Believe You Me Podcast in the studio.

Georges St-Pierre packs for the trip to New York City and shows how he likes to fold his MMA gloves. The episode ends as GSP is winding down in his home in a hot tub.
