UFC 224 ‘Embedded’ video (Ep. 4): Real-life ‘Rocky’ story

We interrupt your fascination with Mackenzie Dern to bring you an important bulletin.

Raquel Pennington will fight Amanda Nunes in the UFC 224 pay-per-view (PPV) main event this Saturday night (May 12, 2018) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (fight card here), and the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion just realized it only has two days to promote the fight.

I guess they got distracted.

Episode four of UFC “Embedded” looks at Pennington’s preparations for “Lioness” and that includes physical therapy. We also get a peek into what her opponent is doing for this weekend’s big shebang.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 4 of UFC 224 Embedded, middleweight Lyoto Machida trains at a facility in Rio. Bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington gets some physical therapy after her long trip to Brazil. Strawweight Amanda Cooper hits mitts poolside, and confident middleweight Jacare Souza analyzes his opponent’s game plan. Middleweight Vitor Belfort and his service dog greet UFC Hall of Famer Minotauro Nogueira, and strawweight Mackenzie Dern does interviews. UFC 224 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the women’s bantamweight championship at UFC 224 on Saturday, May 12th on Pay-Per-View.
