Ah yes, fight day has arrived, and if you’re not watching UFC 189 tonight, chances are you have a pretty solid excuse…
On the day of the card, the UFC has posted the ninth episode for “Embedded” and it includes plenty of eye brow raising footage. Early on, the cameras follow several UFC fighters as they weigh-in on tonight’s headliner between Chad Mendes and Conor McGregor, before moving to pre-weigh-in and weigh-in footage.
The episode’s most interesting moment comes when McGregor runs into Mendes’ buddy, Urijah Faber, backstage, and well, things get weird and heated pretty fast. The episode also documents the intense faceoffs between Mendes and McGregor, as well as Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald at Friday’s weigh-ins.

UFC 189 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
