The UFC Embedded series makes its return with UFC 202, featuring Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Glover Teixeira, taking place this Saturday.
Many of us can recall the coconut scene from Jean Claude Van Damme’s Kickboxer, if with a degree of discomfort.
In the first instalment of UFC 202 Embedded, headliner Conor McGregor does his own version of absorbing absurdly punishing bodyshots, just days before his welterweight rematch with Nate Diaz.
Elsewhere, his opponent is relaxed as we’ve ever seem him despite fight week being on the horizon. Not ‘Cabo drinking holiday’ relaxed, but chilled nonetheless.
Conor McGregor discusses the changes in diet and cardio training that he believes will give him the energy to ‘go the distance’ with his Californian nemesis, while co-main eventers and all round hard-hitters Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson and Glover Teixeira showcase their bombastic strength in training for what is likely a title-eliminator for the UFC light-heavyweight championship.
