The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns this weekend on Saturday February 8th for the UFC 247: “Jones vs. Reyes” pay-per-view event in Houston, Texas. As is the new norm since the start of 2020, the event is available exclusively through ESPN+.
Still wondering whether you should buy it? Perhaps this latest installment of UFC Embedded will help that decision. Episode 5 takes us through the Fan Q&A event. Ilir Latifi, Derrick Lewis, Valentina Shevchenko, and Dominick Reyes entertained the crowd with some confident banter regarding their chances on Saturday night. Then they switched it up and led Reyes out to bring in Jon Jones to a mix of cheers and boos.
Later in the episode, the UFC camera team catches up with Katlyn Chookagian during a late night workout. As a 10 to 1 underdog, Katlyn is looking to prove everyone wrong, but don’t expect any wild and irresponsible hail mary moves from her.
Last but not least we get a look at the UFC media day where the press gets to grill all the fighters. Valentina discusses the accusations that she’s a spy. Dominick Reyes explains why he seems so cool leading into the biggest fight of his life. And Jon Jones dismisses it all.
