Go behind the scenes and into the lives of UFC 185’s biggest names as Anthony “Showtime” Pettis prepares to defend his title against number one contender Rafael dos Anjos this Saturday in Dallas, Texas. In episode one of the Embedded series Pettis gets a haircut and cuts weight with his brother who is fighting on the undercard. We see title challenger dos Anjos working on his jiu-jitsu and playing soccer with his son. Co-headliner Carla Esparza, who will defend her strawweight title against Joanna Jedrzejczyk, tries on a new swimsuit for weigh-ins while her opponent visits the Grand Canyon for the first time.
In episode 2 welterweight contender Matt Brown chats with his family online while in training camp and “borrows” someone’s clothes at the gym to workout in after he forgets his at home. We get a look at his opponent Johny Hendricks’ Bigg Rigg Steakhouse where he’s eating with his family. We also get to see Pettis’ personal chef whip up some healthy fixins for the champ and dos Anjos says goodbye to his family for now as he makes the trek to Texas for UFC 185.
