We’re inching closer to the epic UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) event, locked and loaded for this Saturday night (Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. That’s where Conor McGregor will challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov for “The Eagle’s” 155-pound strap.
And no fight week would be complete without the promotion's “Embedded” video blog series, which follows the main and co-main event fighters as they prepare for “Sin City” combat. That means fans will get a closer look at the co-main event between Tony Ferguson and Anthony Pettis, as well.
That means rola bola!
From the official YouTube description:
