Episode one of UFC 225 ‘Embedded’ is here and there’s plenty of Colby Covington to enjoy for all of you “Cheeto eating nerds” who are watching this from your mom’s basement. Colby’s words — not ours. Here are some bullet points from the episode.
• We kick things off with Rafael dos Anjos doing some media in LA on a Friday afternoon. The former lightweight champ talks about legacy — he wants to be the first Brazilian 2-division champ in UFC history. He also things that his opponent is embarrassing himself with his antics.
• Next up is Colby Covington putting some finishing touches on his training at ATT where coach Brown talks about his belief in his pupil. Colby knows that people in Brazil want him dead so he expects RDA to rep his country and bring him a great fight.
• Middleweight champ Robert Whittaker has already landed in Chicago to work off some of the jet lag from a long flight out of Australia. He puts in some work at Vianna Brothers Jiu-Jitsu. The champ expects the best Yoel Romero that there is on Saturday night — he knows what he’s up against.
• The episode ends inside of Colby Covington’s house. The controversial welterweight is seen packing for his upcoming flight to Chicago where he plans to “beat up a Brazilian nerd” for all of the “snowflakes” out there.
