UFC 257 ‘Embedded’ video (Ep. 1): 100% chance of whiskey

Sunday’s forecast? 100% chance of whiskey.

That’s according to the hotel room prepped for Conor McGregor and his family, who recently arrived on “Fight Island” for the UFC 257 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Abu Dhabi. That’s where “Notorious” will headline the Jan. 23 fight card opposite longtime rival Dustin Poirier.

And the “Embedded” video team is here to tell you all about.

“The Diamond” (and his sentimental backpack) were also featured in the above video, as was lightweight co-headliner Michael Chandler. “Iron” held gold under the Bellator MMA banner and will try to prove he’s championship material in his Octagon debut opposite Australian “Hangman” Dan Hooker.

Expect more “Embedded” videos to drop each day all the way up until fight night. We also have a special press conference on Thursday featuring McGregor and Poirier, who will address the media more than six years after they first went to war at UFC 178 back in late 2014.
