This is, by far, the best episode of UFC 205 Embedded yet. The fifth installment takes a look at the press conference, shows Tyron Woodley meeting the NY Giants, and Joanna Jedrzejczyk implements her own special brand of mental warfare on her opponent. The most entertaining part is the Eddie Alvarez stuff though.
You get an inside look at Eddie’s interaction with the crowd before Conor McGregor shows up (ie. the crowd chanting “F**k you Eddie!”), what he does when he walks off before Conor shows, and you can hear everything he said when McGregor tried to come at him with the chair (“take his little ass away!”). McGregor doesn’t appear to be in Eddie’s head at all – he’s laughing at everything. It’s great.
Joanna’s confrontation with Karolina Kowlkiewicz after the press conference is intriguing as well. She barks at her a lot, and KK has a singular response the whole time – her middle finger. She never says a word until Joanna leaves.
I highly recommend checking this one out.
Here’s the UFC’s description of the video:
“On Episode 5 of UFC 205 Embedded, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley visits the New York Giants at work, meeting Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr. among others. Lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez suits up for the UFC 205 press conference at Madison Square Garden, where opponent and featherweight champion Conor McGregor puts the “fashion” in fashionably late. When the two nearly come to blows, UFC President Dana White is forced to intervene. There are even more fireworks afterward backstage, as strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk lambasts opponent Karolina Kowalkiewicz, who responds with a single finger.”
UFC 205 goes down this Saturday, November 12th, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
