The action unravels later this evening (Sat., Dec. 30, 2017) at UFC 219 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, as UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg looks to defend her title for the first time against former bantamweight queen Holly Holm.
In preparation for the end-of-the-year main event, the promotion has released the latest and greatest episode of UFC 219 “Embedded.” Check out the action above for a behind-the-scenes look at Holm, Cyborg, and rest of the main card participants.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 4 of UFC 219 Embedded, strawweight Cynthia Calvillo shows her goals and gets some gummy bears for good luck. Featherweight champion Cris Cyborg, opponent Holly Holm and welterweight Carlos Condit keep their energy up throughout their weight cuts. Calvillo gets pointers from heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou in the UFC Performance Institute, and Cyborg discusses strategy with former champion Dominick Cruz on the drive to media day. The stars of the co-main event, lightweights Khabib Nurmagomedov and Edson Barboza, also appear at T-Mobile and predict victories on Saturday night. The fighters of the matchups then come face-to-face on stage, as Condit meets Neil Magny and Calvillo shares the stage with Carla Esparza. At open workouts, the headliners give back, with Holm bringing fans on stage and Cyborg collecting toys for local children. UFC 219 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the women’s featherweight championship bout at UFC 219 on Saturday, December 30th on Pay-Per-View.
UFC 219 will also feature a premier co-main event matchup between undefeated lightweight title threat Khabib Nurmagomedov and human highlight reel Edson Barboza.
