UFC 276 ‘Embedded’ video (Ep. 1): Israel Adesanya pranked by zombie stripper

Reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is being housed off campus ahead of his upcoming UFC 276 title fight against Jared Cannonier this Sat. night (July 2, 2022) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and while it wasn’t on par with the “Mac Mansion,” it did come with an in-ground swimming pool and a zombie stripper.

Which served no purpose other than to prank an unsuspecting “Stylebender.”

BLOCKBUSTER WELTERWEIGHT REMATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Sat., Aug. 20, 2022, for the first time in more than five years, headlined by a blockbuster Welterweight championship bout that will see Kamaru Usman run it back with No. 2-ranked contender, Leon Edwards. In UFC 278’s pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, No. 4-seeded Middleweight contender, Paulo Costa, aims to spoil the return of former 185-pound champion, Luke Rockhold. And last but not least, former Featherweight champion and all-time great, Jose Aldo, returns to Bantamweight action, too!

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Terrorizing your friends and teammates is part of the MMA culture and is often a big part of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) experience. I do think the funniest part of the prank is watching Adesanya crash through the door in hopes of finding a stripper, though a small part of me was expecting one of those ”Days of Thunder” type pranks.

Also featured in Ep. 1 of UFC 276 “Embedded” is current featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski. “The Great” defends his 145-pound strap against former titleholder Max Holloway in the pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event. In addition, bantamweight sensation Sean O’Malley gets some airtime ahead of his Pedro Munhoz fight. will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 276 fight card right here, starting with the early ESPN+ “Prelims” matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET, then the remaining undercard balance on ABC/ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET, before the PPV main card start time at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+ PPV.
