Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the pay-per-view (PPV) market this Saturday night (Dec. 29, 2018) with UFC 232: “Jones vs Gustafsson 2,” which takes place inside
T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada The Forum in Inglewood, California.
The event — which was recently re-located on short notice after this happened — will feature a Light Heavyweight championship rematch between former division king, Jon Jones, taking on Alexander Gustafsson. And given the recent turn of events, the fight has a bit more spark to it.
In the co-main event, Cris Cyborg will defend her Featherweight title against current Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes in the first-ever women’s super fight inside the Octagon.
Before all the combatants get it on Saturday night, take a look at the fight week preparations as they gear up for their all-important championship bouts. That means another round of “Embedded” video blogs. From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 1 of UFC 232 Embedded, women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg works on her cardio and parking skills in the predawn hours. Light heavyweight title contender Alexander Gustafsson arrives early to get his body adjusted to the time difference, finishing his camp at the UFC’s Performance Institute. In New York City, bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes makes media rounds with fiancée Nina Ansaroff. And former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones runs wild in an Albuquerque toy department, buying Christmas gifts for needy children.
