Thankfully it’s finally December, so the most anticipated fight of the year in Aldo vs McGregor is almost upon us.
The media blitz of UFC 194’s main event in the coming week is going to be immense.
To that end, UFC Embedded is a hugely popular YouTube series that goes behind the scenes of Fight Week before and during most pay-per-views.
The sheer magnitude of Conor McGregor’s showdown with Jose Aldo though, means that the series will be broadcast on FOX Sports for the very first time.
The preview for the epic showcase sees the UFC take a different slant on the hype.
Instead of solely focusing on the heated rivalry between the two combatants, the video charts the trails of destruction that both fighters have left behind them.
Seeing a young, brash McGregor circa 2008 speaking of ambitions that dwarf most childhood dreams is awe-inspiring, when one considers that he has all but accomplished his goals almost eight years later. But standing in his way on Saturday December 12 is the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world.
UFC 194 Embedded airs tomorrow at 3pm E/T and 12pm P/T (8pm in Britain and Ireland).
