UFC on FOX 16 'Embedded' video blog (Ep. 4): Jessica Eye has man hands!

This is the "Team Alpha Male" special ...

Fight week drudges on for UFC on FOX 16 combatants as they continue to shed weight and make last minute preparations for their encounters inside the Octagon tonight (Sat., July 25, 2015) in Chicago, Illinois.

Though the main card begins at 8 p.m. ET inside United Center, fighters like Miesha Tate and Jessica Eye are housed in the nearby Hard Rock Hotel.

Before stepping onto the scale Friday afternoon, Tate and boyfriend/fellow UFC fighter Bryan Caraway attempt to drop those last few pounds, get fitted for gloves and even take in a chiropractic adjustment.

We also learn later that No. 5-ranked women's Bantamweight Jessica Eye has "really big hands" as she prepares to throw down versus Tate in the co-main event of the evening for a shot at champion Ronda Rousey.


Middleweight titleholder Chris Weidman joins the fighters as they continue to check their weight and gives his predictions as to who will win the main event title fight between 135-pound champion T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao.

Speaking of Dillashaw, the Team Alpha Male staple is tasked with dropping about six pounds on the day of weigh-ins, while also taking time out to check on ... err ... lay on top of a sweaty Danny Castillo in the middle of his cut.
