UFC 278 is almost here, and as usual, embedded is here. The show that gives you an in-depth look at the draft players on PPV has released the fourth episode of this weekend’s SLC Big Show, which serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.
Luke Rockhold signed the poster. He said he had worked several times with Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards as sparring partners and the fight was like a coin toss. He tries on his fighting gloves and jokes with his teammates.
Usman signs poster and talks to Trevor Wittman. He has now headlined eight events, and he says Hollywood is the next stop.
Merab Dvalishvili arrives in Salt Lake City. He’s ready for a big fight with Jose Aldo. He said it was a dream to fight in the UFC a few years ago and now he has Aldo.
Aldo loses weight in SpongeBob SquarePants sauna. He said he bought a set of electronic drums and practiced a lot. This helps his coordination.
Edwards is in his final workout. All the hard work is done, it’s just fine-tuning now. They want to bring the world champions back to Birmingham. Leon said he was able to win not just for himself, but for many people — his team, the people in his hometown, and those who grew up like him.
Justin Gaethje with Usman and the team. They’re wrestling, having fun, and clowning around. Kamaru’s brother, Mohammed Usman, said the situation was special and he liked watching his brother reach the top at the right time. Gaethje shoots with his eyes closed and wins some money from Wittman. He celebrated as usual, bouncing off the wall and doing a backflip.
That’s it! UFC 278 drops at SLC tomorrow night.
