UFC 244 Embedded video (Ep. 6): Gastelum fulfills dream, shakes hands with ‘The Rock’

We are just hours away from UFC 244 popping off later tonight (Sat., Nov. 2, 2019) live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, as Jorge Masvidal puts his hot streak on the line against Nate Diaz in what is being called a “Baddest Motherf—ker” title fight.

In preparation for the impending UFC 244 card, which also features a co-main event middleweight bout between Kelvin Gastelum and Darren Till, as well as a welterweight clash featuring Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque, the promotion has released the latest and greatest episode of UFC 244 “Embedded.” Check it out above courtesy of UFC.

This time around, the behind-the-scenes action focuses on final weigh cuts, official weigh ins, final faceoffs, and the UFC invasion of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 6 of UFC 244 Embedded, after a wild week of lead-up, official weigh-ins are blissfully uneventful as everyone hits their mark.
