Watch the first two episodes of “Mayweather vs McGregor Embedded.”
Showtime Sports’ “All Access” series highlighting the build up to the August 26th Super welterweight fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor concluded last Friday night, but there’s still more videos to be seen if you still haven’t had enough.
The UFC has just released the first two episodes of Mayweather vs. McGregor “Embedded” series, which is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog, similar to the beloved “All Access” show.
On Episode 1 of Mayweather vs. McGregor Embedded, the two fighters gear up for their monumental showdown in very different ways. UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor continues to perfect his skills in the gym, as his coaches talk glove size, while the 49-0 world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather and his team get some swings in at Topgolf, and chow on some Whoppers from Burger King.
McGregor does manage to get away from training long enough to visit Topshot and play what appears to be the most extreme version of laser tag on the planet.
In the second episode of Mayweather vs McGregor Embedded, the UFC champ can be seen signing a fan’s cast before getting in another hard sparring session in the boxing ring. His performance draws praise from both coach John Kavanagh and referee Joe Cortez, who was part of McGregor’s camp throughout the training program. McGregor also brings his baby to work with him at the UFC Performance Institute, where he checks out the made-for-adults nap room.
Episode 2 also shows Floyd Mayweather greeting some fans at a Mayweather vs. McGregor pop-up shop before he goes to review some possible mouthpieces for fight night, including one with an Irish flag on it and another that features 14 karat gold. Then, as seen on Showtime’s “All Access,” Mayweather makes his weekly trip to a skating rink to enjoy some time with his family.
In case you haven’t marked your calendars, or set your alarms, by now the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight is going down this Saturday, August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The PPV will cost $100 and is scheduled to begin at 9pm EST, meaning the main event might not start until midnight on the East coast.
