UFC 218 Embedded video (Ep. 6): Max Holloway’s cupcakes have arrived!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to action later tonight (Sat., 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 six of UFC 218 “Embedded,” as per the official YouTube description:

On Episode 6 of UFC 218 Embedded, former featherweight champion Jose Aldo watches soccer before starting his weight cut. Spirits stay high as the pounds come off for heavyweight Francis Ngannou and lightweight Eddie Alvarez. It all pays off on Friday morning, when those fighters -- as well as featherweight champion Max Holloway, heavyweight Alistair Overeem and Alvarez' opponent Justin Gaethje -- hit their targets at the official weigh-in. The stars of the main event recover with assorted carbs: spaghetti for Aldo and cupcakes for Holloway. Then it's one more round of posing and staredowns, this time at Little Caesars Arena, where fans turn out for the ceremonial weigh-in. 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.

All that’s left to do is fight!
