New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back on pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend with Cris Cyborg defending her women’s featherweight title against Octagon newcomer Yana Kunitskaya in the five-round main event.

Former lightweight kingpin Frankie Edgar takes over the co-main event slot in hopes of turning away 145-pound up-and-comer Brian Ortega, who comes into the bout on short notice.

As we inch closer to this Saturday night’s (March 3, 2018) action inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, the promotion will roll out another round of “Embedded” video blogs focusing on all four combatants, beginning with episode one in the video above.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 1 of UFC 222 Embedded, women’s featherweight title challenger Yana Kunitskaya braves the sub-Russian temperatures of the Sandias before heading indoors for her final training session. Reigning champion Cris Cyborg spends Sunday morning at church. Featherweight Frankie Edgar coaches his son at a wrestling tournament, and opponent Brian Ortega offers a tour of his outdoor tiki lounge. UFC 222 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the women’s featherweight championship bout at UFC 222 on Saturday, March 3 on Pay-Per-View.
