I love watching UFC Embeddeds because of the insight they provide. In the lead up to a fight, the cameras will follow around Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone as he bungee-jumps off a plane that’s on fire. Or the cameras will give us a glimpse into Conor McGregor’s spartan lifestyle of concubines feeding him grapes while eunuchs fan him with big palm fronds. Or maybe we’ll see Daniel Cormier saying a tearful goodbye to his kids.
Unfortunately, this Saturday’s UFC 190 pay-per-view is headlined by champ Ronda Rousey and challenger Bethe Correia, so the first Embedded episode we get features them putting on makeup. Getting their hair colored. Getting their nails done.
It’s probably safe to assume that the rest of the episodes in the 190 series will showcase more than just this “lady” stuff. Right? I mean, we SHOULD see stuff pertaining to the weigh-ins and the media day and all that jazz.
