VIDEO: TJ training, Barao contemplating, Tate’s BBQ and Eye’s bum massage in new UFC Embedded

It's all going on

Darragh Murphy

It may be the first Saturday of the month in which an Irishman isn’t fighting but it’s still well worth tuning in for UFC Chicago this weekend.

Renan Barao has the chance to avenge what many consider the greatest upset in UFC history when he takes on current bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw in Saturday night’s main event.

And female 135 lbers will also be in action when number 2 Miesha Tate takes on number 5 Jessica Eye in the co-main event to learn who moves a step closer to Ronda Rousey.

In the first episode of the Embedded series for UFC on Fox 16, we see Team Alpha Male’s Dillashaw working his striking with Master Thong before getting some words of encouragement from fellow UFC bantamweight Chris Holdsworth.

Renan Barao is filmed giving an interview in his apartment in which he claims that his heart and desire is going to be the difference in one of the most anticipated rematches in recent memory.

The co-headliners are introduced next as Jessica Evil Eye takes a visit to her chiropractor to get her back worked on before we get a peek at Miesha Tate’e weight cut as she has her friends over for a barbecue.
