VIDEO: The latest episode of UFC Embedded shows the rare case of a weight-cutting couple

Tate and Caraway race to 135 lbs

We wonder what will happen in the three hours between Brian Caraway’s fight and Miesha Tate’s co-main event tonight.

The pair of UFC bantamweights have been seeing each other for years and you’d think it would seriously hamper Tate’s concentration if her boyfriend gets knocked out or loses badly in his bout against Eddie Wineland.

It must be strange for a couple to be fighting on a card together and it’s the first time that we can remember it happening in the UFC.

The last episode of Embedded for UFC Chicago shows the unique experience of boyfriend and girlfriend cutting weight side-by-side as Tate complains about the fact that Caraway finds it easier to get a sweat on.

We see the pair, as well as Tate’s opponent Jessica Eye and headliners TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao, checking their weight and picking the glove size that they will wear tonight.

All credit to the Embedded editing team as they managed to get the episode out just a few hours after the weigh-ins for the Fox event in which all fighters made weight.
