UFC 203 'Embedded' video, Ep. 3: 'Send that man [CM Punk] back [to WWE]!'

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues to roll out the "Embedded" pre-fight video blogs to promote its latest pay-per-view (PPV) event, UFC 203, which takes place this weekend (Sat., Sept. 10, 2016) inside Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

The latest behind-the-scenes episode follows newly-crowned UFC Heavyweight titleholder, Stipe Miocic, as he gets suited up for a media blitz at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn., to promote his first-ever title defense against Alistair Overeem. Fellow top-ranked Heavyweight contenders, Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne -- who will once again lock horns in UFC 203's PPV co-main event -- didn't get any air time in this latest episode.

Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar-turned professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, C.M. Punk, as well as his opponent, Mickey Gall, unsurprisingly, were showcased prominently.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 3 of UFC 203 Embedded, debuting welterweight CM Punk defies science in dry ice bath, and heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic gets suited up. Bantamweight Jessica Eye centers her training on her throwing arm. Punk's opponent Mickey Gall arrives in The Land, where he discovers he has a fan in heavyweight title challenger Alistair Overeem. Veteran bantamweight Urijah Faber offers Punk some fight week advice as the former pro wrestler struggles with social media then hams it up at a photo shoot. Miocic then ventures to the East Coast for a day of media to promote his hometown title defense.
