On Episode 5 of UFC 229 Embedded, opponents sound off at Ultimate Media Day before facing off. Matchups include former lightweight champions Tony Ferguson and Anthony Pettis, strawweights Felice Herrig, and Michelle Waterson and heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov. At a packed press conference that afternoon, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and two-division champion Conor McGregor say their pieces but don’t share a stage; Nurmagomedov sticks to his schedule and leaves long before fashionably late McGregor gets to the Las Vegas Strip. UFC 229 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to UFC 229: Khabib vs. McGregor taking place Saturday, October 6th on Pay-Per-View.
