It’s UFC 262 “Embedded,” Day 3, and this episode has Michael Chandler landing in Houston, Texas, and immediately getting a good sweat on sparring in prep for his Lightweight title fight against Charles Oliveira this weekend (Sat., May 15, 2021) inside Toyota Center.
As for Beneil Dariush — who fights Tony Ferguson in the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event — he takes us into the backrooms at the fighter hotel where we get to see what the Venum fight kit selection process looks like.
Also arriving in Houston we have Katlyn Chookagian, who fights Viviane Arauja in a women’s Flyweight contender bout. Edson Barbosa also makes an appearance, he fights Shane Burgos on the PPV main card as well.
Back at the fighter hotel, Chandler is still working hard, doing laps around the building. Chookagian gets fitted for her Venum kit. And a scrappy-looking Burgos rolls up looking ready to fight.
