UFC 208 Embedded: Vlog Series – Episode 6

Episode 6 of UFC 208 Embedded brings us behind-the-scenes of fight week as we get closer to crowning the first ever UFC women’s featherweight champion.

Episode 6 of Embedded picks up with the fighters boarding a bus to head to the Kings Theater.  They are headed there for the ceremonial weigh ins. We see Germaine de Randamie and UFC newcomer Jarred Brooks referring to each other as future champions. Holly Holm sits with coach John Winkeljohn checking out a video from her Instagram.

As they arrive at the theater, UFC Event Manager Heidi Dean helps the fighters navigate the ice covered parking lot and into the theater.  They don’t want a fighter falling at this point.  They enter the theater and the friendliness of Germaine de Randamie and Holly Holm is on display as they talk shoe sizes and shoes. It seems like there is no prefight animosity on either side, whatsoever.

The video then takes us through the ceremonial weigh ins of the main event as well as the co-main. All fighters are relaxed and ready to go about the task at hand. Germaine closes the show addressing the fans saying, “Let’s make it one hell of a night, with all of you.”
