UFC 205 video: Embedded, part 1 – Shopping and training

UFC 205 is almost upon us. You can always tell it’s fight week when the UFC starts putting out Embedded episodes, and this week is no different. Episode one for the promotion’s huge New York show is now available for you to check out. As usual with the premiere episode of these things, there’s not a lot of drama – just an introduction to the combatants.

In the main event, you have UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez defending his title against featherweight champ Conor McGregor. There are also two other title fights – a welterweight clash between champ Tyron Woodley and challenger Stephen Thompson; and a strawweight tilt between Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

Here’s the UFC’s description of the first episode:

“On Episode 1 of UFC 205 Embedded, it’s all business for the stars of New York City’s first-ever UFC event. Lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez chalks up a win after his media call with opponent and featherweight champion Conor McGregor. McGregor pushes himself in training, while strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk combines hydration with motivation. Strawweight challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz follows a mitt session with a big-city shopping trip. Welterweight title challenger Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson continues his normal duties as a karate teacher and a mixed martial arts student, while champion Tyron Woodley also keeps his family close even in the gym.”

UFC 205 goes down this Saturday, November 12th, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
