UFC 185 'Embedded' video blog, Ep. 4: 'Showtime' dazzles at open workouts, Esparza wins creepy fan cookies

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight champion Carla Esparza is nicknamed is "Cookie Monster" because she really loves cookies. With that in mind, one zealous mixed martial arts (MMA) fan decided to bake her a batch from scratch and deliver them at the UFC 185 open workouts.

Maybe he's a fan of Joanna Jedrzejczyk?

Giving a fighter a bag of cookies during a weight cut ... probably not the best play. And it's not like she's going to eat them after the fight, either, since no one has any idea what the ingredients are or if Mr. Easy-Bake-Oven even washed his hands before strapping on the apron.

It's the thought that counts, I suppose.

That's about as exciting as it gets in this episode, unless you're really into watching fighters work up a light sweat by pounding the pads. Either way, we're less than 48 hours away from "Showtime."
