UFC 258 ‘Embedded’ video blog (Ep. 2): The champ is here!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a couple of days away from its UFC 258 pay-per-view (PPV) event, going down this Sat. night (Feb. 13, 2021) inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, which means another round of pre-fight “Embedded” video blogs.

Today’s installment gives you a closer look at event headliners Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns, who collide in the five-round main event for “The Nigerian Nightmare’s” welterweight strap. Usman is seen hanging out with top lightweight contender Justin Gaethje, while “Durinho” spends time with his kids at wrestling practice.

We also get to examine the middleweight showdown between Kelvin Gastelum and Ian Heinisch. Sounds like Gastelum — who nearly upset Israel Adesanya for the interim 185-pound title — is finally in the right head space after connecting with longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) coach Rafael Cordeiro at King’s MMA.
