After a couple of much-needed weeks off, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will return to pay-per-view (PPV) for the UFC 224: “Nunes vs. Pennington” mixed martial arts (MMA) event, locked and loaded for this Saturday night (May 12, 2018) inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
As you would expect with any major PPV event, the promotion is rolling out a series of pre-fight “Embedded” videos to help get you hyped for this weekend’s big bonanza, which features a women’s bantamweight title fight, as well as middleweight showdown that could produce the next title contender. And let’s not forget about that girl who can’t figure out what language she speaks.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 1 of UFC 224 Embedded, strawweight Mackenzie Dern reflects on a lifetime spent in jiu-jitsu, and middleweight Kelvin Gastelum wraps his camp with a sparring day. Women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes gets a massage at home, then packs alongside her girlfriend, strawweight Nina Ansaroff. Middleweight Jacare Souza readies for his first UFC fight in Rio. Bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington spends her Sunday getting ready for the trip with her fiancee, strawweight Tecia Torres. UFC 224 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the women’s bantamweight championship at UFC 218 on Saturday, May 12th on Pay-Per-View.
