UFC 229 ‘Embedded’ video (Ep. 3): Dillon Danis is a better version of Khabib Nurmagomedov

New, comments

His words, not mine.

We’re just a few days away from the epic UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) event, locked and loaded for this Saturday night (Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. That’s where Conor McGregor will challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov for “The Eagle’s” 155-pound strap.

And no fight week would be complete without the promotion’s “Embedded” video blog series (see above), which follows the main and co-main event fighters as they prepare for “Sin City” combat. Team “Notorious,” as expected, has motor-mouthed jiu-jitsu trainer Dillon Danis in tow.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 3 of UFC 229 Embedded, two-division champion Conor McGregor arrives in style for autographs and drills at UFC headquarters. Former lightweight champion Tony Ferguson gets light therapy, as opponent Anthony Pettis journeys to Las Vegas alongside his brother, UFC 229 flyweight Sergio Pettis. More main card fighters check in, including strawweights Michelle Waterson and Felice Herrig and heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov. Post-photo shoot, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov gets a first look at the custom jewelry he inspired. UFC 229 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to UFC 229: Khabib vs. McGregor taking place Saturday, October 6th on Pay-Per-View.
