UFC 227 Embedded Ep. 1 – Gearing up for fight week

UFC 227 Embedded Episode 1 has been released.

It’s that time again, The UFC has released their initial episode of the Embedded series, covering UFC 227. The episode features flyweight challenger Henry Cejudo getting work done in the hot Pheonix sun. He’s doing some reaction drills that are pretty impressive and hiking in the blistering heat. It looks miserable.

Demetrious Johnson is also getting into the gym after he takes his kids to Petco, which is an adventure in itself. The Johnson family is into praying mantises, well, almost the whole family. Demetrious’ wife Destiny, not a fan.

TJ Dillashaw is shown mixing training in with being a new father, and he seems to be handling both quite well. He looks really sharp heading into his rematch with Cody Garbrandt. Speaking of which.

Cody and his team are on a private jet heading to LA for fight week. They are comfortable and Cody holds his baby and talks about wanting to give his son the world. I always think a fighter changes when he’s fighting for more than himself. Both TJ and Cody have young sons, and I think it’ll make this a more compelling fight.
