What makes an Embedded episode great?
Well, the premise of the series – a behind-the-scenes look at a UFC pay-per-view fight week – is already pretty solid. We get insight into the fighters’ lives during the lead-up to their meetings in the Octagon. What more could you ask for?
Apparently, we could ask for a video footage of UFC star-gone-berserk Conor McGregor, as he and his band of thugs wreck a van transporting fighters during UFC 223’s media day. We could ask for it, and we amazingly get it all in this Embedded episode.
(Note: You’ve already seen episodes one through three, but there’s no reason to watch UFC 223 Embedded number four because, well, this Conor McGregor thing happened and rendered so much of it moot.)
So here it is, McGregor and company going nuts, with some compelling perspective coming from those in the van (including a look at Michael Chiesa’s cut that negged him from competing).
Plus, there’s the breaking news that Max Holloway is off the card, and Al Iaquinta is in to face Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Seriously, this is the best Embedded episode ever.
