Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight kingpin, Stipe Miocic, will return to the Octagon this weekend (Sat., Aug. 15, 2020), taking on former double champ, Daniel Cormier, for the third and likely final time before “D.C.,” 41, heads out to pasture after a legendary combat sports career. Unsurprisingly, Cormier reflected on his earlier days competing in “Sin City” in the latest episode of “Embedded,” while Miocic enjoyed wrapping up his pandemic camp among the people he loves most. Meanwhile, in the co-main event, rising Bantamweight contender, Sean O’Malley, reveals the secret to his creative success, his wife, who doubles as his hair stylist, massage therapist, physical therapist, chef, nutritionist ... you name it, she does it!
Indeed, the ever-present “Embedded” cameras give you another behind-the-scenes look at all of the action that goes down during fight week (watch episode one here).
From the official YouTube description:
Sean O’Malley gets his hair done by his multitasking wife. Daniel Cormier sets off for an old-school Las Vegas experience. Stipe Miocic spends time with his family in the pool.
