AFTER THE WEEKEND’S special one-hour UFC 194 preview special, the UFC’s behind-the-scenes Embedded series returned last night as the countdown to Saturday continues.

In the first episode, middleweight champion Chris Weidman is fulfilling his media duties ahead of his co-main event bout with Luke Rockhold.

He’s working closely with his movement coach, Ido Portal, while SBG team-mate Gunnar Nelson also makes an appearance.
