UFC 223 ‘Embedded’ video blog (Ep. 5): Conor McGregor vs. The Bus

Despite a week chock-full of nutty injuries, bus attacks, and botched weigh ins, UFC 223 will still go down tomorrow night (Sat., April. 7, 2018) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, as undefeated lightweight sensation Khabib Nurmagomedov takes on surprising filler Al Iaquinta for the undisputed 155-pound title.

In preparation for the impending PPV event, the promotion has released the latest and greatest episode of UFC 223 “Embedded,” which can be seen above in its entirety courtesy of UFC. While some of the action focuses on the fighters still left on the UFC 223 card, a good portion of the episode reveals a behind-the-scene look at Conor McGregor going bananas on a bus full of trained assassins.

It’s probably one of the more anticipated “Embedded” episodes in recent memory so enjoy.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 5 of UFC 223 Embedded, lightweight champion Conor McGregor unexpectedly arrives, causing a disruption on the loading dock. Dana White checks in with athletes affected by the incident and addresses the situation. The UFC celebrates its 25th anniversary by visiting the New York Stock Exchange. Ragin’ Al Iaquinta steps in to take on Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event. UFC 223 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two championship bouts at UFC 223: Khabib vs. Iaquinta on Saturday, April 7 on Pay-Per-View.
