It’s well worth a watch.

THE UFC’S LATEST edition of the ‘Embedded’ series aired last night as the countdown to the eagerly-anticipated featherweight title unification bout between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo continues.

The UFC 194 special, which was shown on primetime American television on FOX Sports, charts the meteoric rise of McGregor from fresh-faced rookie to a global superstar.

Unlike the regular ‘Embedded’ episodes, it doesn’t follow the fighters behind-the-scenes but includes past highlights and interviews with both men. It’s well worth a watch and only serves to whet the appetite.

Six days and counting.
