Dana White Expects Call From Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones Rips Daniel Cormier's Physique, UFC Embedded

- UFC has kicked off their Embedded series, featuring UFC 182's top stars preparing for battle this weekend.

In episode 1, which can be watched above, Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones both go through light warm ups and Myles Jury leaves his hometown for Vegas.

Episode 2 is also available and can be watched here. Wrestling Inc will have full live coverage of UFC 182 this Saturday night.

- Despite Brock Lesnar being under WWE contract and the company's Heavyweight Champion, UFC President Dana White is hopeful that he'll hear from the pay-per-view juggernaut.

"Brock Lesnar is under contract with the WWE, and I'm sure when his contract is up, he will call me," White said on Fox Sports Live this week.

As mentioned earlier this week, Bellator MMA is also hoping to land Lesnar.

- As their highly anticipated battle draws closer, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier trade verbal barbs. Jones made headlines this week by offering a backhanded compliment in regards to Cormier's physique.

"I wouldn't necessarily say there's anything I like about him. I do respect that he's able to use his frame so successfully, being a short guy and thicker guy. When you look at him, his body type doesn't scream athlete. But he's been able to do some amazing things, both in the sport of wrestling and his MMA career," said Jones on a conference call this week.

The two will square off for the UFC Light Heavyweight title on Saturday.
