Video: UFC 194 Embedded Episode 5 - 'I Feel Absolutely Amazing'

It'd be interesting to find out what Jose Aldo thinks after watching episode five of UFC Embedded and in particular the scenes with Conor McGregor's 'movement coach' Ido Portal.

We've heard plenty about Portal in the lead up to Saturday night's fight. We've also seen plenty of him in previous episodes of Embedded for UFC 194.


In episdoe five, we see McGregor and his team, including Gunnar Nelson, dacing around the patio area in his temporary Las Vegas home. Portal - who looks and feels like a character which Sacha Baron Cohen could have created and played - is directing proceedings, instructing everyone to 'move basketball style, chop it up'.

To be fair, McGregor does appear to put a lot of stock in Portal's coaching, announcing at the conclusion of the session "I feel absolutely amazing."

Elsewhere in the episode, Dana White addresses McGregor's new zen approach to press conferences and face-offs, which involves him wearing a polo shirt and jeans rather than his usual three-piece suit battle gear. There's also the respectful nod to Jose Aldo.

The UFC president - initially - was not buying the Irishman's newfoud demeanour.


For the staredowns, I wasn't buying into the zen thing. I was ready to butt in. I guess it was real.
