Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the pay-per-view (PPV) market this Saturday night (May 12, 2018) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with UFC 224 (fight card here) which is set to go down inside Jeunesse Arena.
All the top headliners including Amanda Nunes, Vitor Belfort and Kelvin Gastelum -- just to name a few — are going through the final steps leading up to fight night, which includes fight week obligations such as photo shoots, last-minute weight cuts and open workouts.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 5 of UFC 224 Embedded, the Brazilians on the card shine for the cameras, as Vitor Belfort, John Lineker, Lyoto Machida, Jacare Souza and Amanda Nunes do photos and interviews. Strawweight Mackenzie Dern trains at the gym of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. At official open workouts, middleweight Kelvin Gastelum impresses the crowd by speaking Portuguese, and the crowd impresses title challenger Raquel Pennington by not booing her. UFC 224 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the women’s bantamweight championship at UFC 224 on Saturday, May 12th on Pay-Per-View.
