UFC 229 ‘Embedded’ video (Ep. 5): Conor McGregor shows up fashionably late to presser

New, 1 comment

We are so close to Conor McGregor colliding with Khabib Nurmagomedov tomorrow night (Sat., Oct. 6, 2018) at UFC 229 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the undisputed 155-pound title.

In preparation for the ground-breaking main event, the promotion has rolled out the latest and greatest episode of UFC 229 “Embedded,” which can be seen above in its entirety. This time around, the action focuses on UFC 229’s media day and final press conference featuring a late McGregor and a disgruntled Khabib.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 5 of UFC 229 Embedded, opponents sound off at Ultimate Media Day before facing off. Matchups include former lightweight champions Tony Ferguson and Anthony Pettis, strawweights Felice Herrig, and Michelle Waterson and heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov. At a packed press conference that afternoon, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and two-division champion Conor McGregor say their pieces but don’t share a stage; Nurmagomedov sticks to his schedule and leaves long before fashionably late McGregor gets to the Las Vegas Strip. 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.
