UFC 217 Embedded Episode 3 is ready for your viewing pleasure!
On Episode 3 of UFC 217 Embedded, UFC champions visit New York City landmarks as strawweight titleholder Joanna Jedrzejczyk ventures to St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It’s an amazingly beautiful church. After she leaves the church, Joanna goes to a Nail Salon to get her nails done for Saturday’s big fight. She says she has to look good out there.
Cody Garbrandt heads to Renzo Gracie Academy to get in some work. He talks about how when he was first starting out, and TJ was the champion, TJ couldn’t hang with Cody in the gym. He says Dominick Cruz made TJ look amateurish and the only grappling TJ is gonna do is when he grapples the referee after he’s been knocked out.
Bantamweight title challenger TJ Dillashaw continues his training camp in California. He’s at home in Laguna Hills and hasn’t yet left for New York. After he is done training he visits “The Man Cave” for a haircut. He’ll be leaving for New York the next day and needs his hair looking right.
We cut back to Joanna and she’s visiting a Polish restaurant. The food looks amazing, but unfortunately for Joanna, she only eats an orange. It’s odd that she’d want to surround herself with all that amazing food, knowing she can’t eat it.
Middleweight champion Michael Bisping is outside of the hotel signing autographs for fans. He asks fans who is going to win and they say Bisping is. One of the fans says, “Don’t let him grapple you.” and Bisping jokingly responds, “I never thought of that.”
Georges St-Pierre gets in some training, grappling and working submissions. He then jumps into a pool and does a weigh-training program in the water saying it’s better for your joints. Finally, GSP heads to CT to so some media.
Welterweight Jorge Masvidal is at MSG a little early this week. On Saturday he’ll be fighting Stephen Thompson but today he’s enjoying a New York Knicks game.
