New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is inching closer to its upcoming UFC 221: “Rockhold vs. Romero” mixed martial arts (MMA) event on pay-per-view (PPV), locked and loaded for this Saturday night (Feb. 10, 2018) inside Perth Arena in Australia.

To help fans get hyped up for this weekend’s big shebang, the “Embedded” video series has made its return, featuring a closer look at the final weight cuts for middleweight headliners Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero, as well as other cool stuff like Ferrari collections, open workouts, and Australian camel rides.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 4 of UFC 221 Embedded, middleweight title contender Luke Rockhold rents a camel to take him to open workouts. Heavyweight opponents Mark Hunt and Curtis Blaydes appreciate the Australian fans at the event, and headliner Yoel Romero welcomes three of them on stage for a dance lesson. Local Perth heavyweight Soa Palelei brings Hunt’s camp to check out a Ferrari collection. Rockhold cuts weight in the sauna before the next day’s official weigh-in. Opponents square off on stage, but things get heated when one headliner misses the 185-pound limit. UFC 221 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the interim middleweight championship bout at UFC 221: Romero vs. Rockhold on Saturday, February 10th on Pay-Per-View.
