Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the hurt business this Saturday night (Dec. 2, 2017) with UFC 218: "Holloway vs. Aldo 2,” which pops off from inside Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.
That means a slew of “Embedded” pre-fight video blogs.
UFC 218 will be headlined by the featherweight championship rematch between reigning division kingpin Max Holloway and former 145-pound titleholder Jose Aldo, while heavyweight bruisers Alistair Overeem and Francis Ngannou battle for contendership in the three-round pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event.
Here’s what’s on tap for episode five, as per the official YouTube description:
On Episode 5 of UFC 218 Embedded, featherweight champion Max Holloway hones in on his boxing. Lightweight contender Justin Gaethje recalls an early interaction with the champ and enjoys a sushi dinner. His opponent Eddie Alvarez is high energy at the official media day, while heavyweights Francis Ngannou and Alistair Overeem take a more subdued approach. Former featherweight champion Jose Aldo reaffirms his plan to win the title rematch, then meets with women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg and boxing gold medalist Claressa Shields. Thursday evening, the serious weight cutting begins for “Blessed.” UFC 218 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the featherweight championship rematch at UFC 218 on Saturday, December 2nd on Pay-Per-View.
