New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back with episode two of its UFC 239 “Embedded” video series, featuring a behind-the-scenes look at some of the top names competing this Sat. night (July 6, 2019) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Headlining the UFC 239 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card is the light heavyweight showdown between Jon Jones and Thiago Santos. “Bones” is doing all sorts of exciting things for the camera, alongside UFC co-headliner Holly Holm, like eating meals and talking.


Elsewhere in the “Embedded” video, Santos is working out in the Las Vegas heat while UFC 239 main card competitor, Ben Askren, celebrates his independence by renting his own car, because free shuttles are for chiselers. “Funky” faces welterweight veteran Jorge Masvidal for a spot in the congested 170-pound title race.
