UFC 253 ‘Embedded’ video, Ep. 2: Life on ‘Fight Island’ seems pretty relaxing

UFC 253 is set to go down this Saturday night (Sept. 26, 2020) from inside Flash Forum on Yas Island, Abud Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, as Israel Adesanya will defend his Middleweight title against Paulo Costa. In the co-headlining act, Jan Blachowicz will face Dominick Reyes for the right to be called the promotion’s newest Light Heavyweight champion.

Before then, get an all access look at the final preparations each combatant must make days out from fight night. Whether it’s taking a dip in the pool, working out in the hotel room or a late night session of hoops, “Embedded” takes you behind-the-scenes.

From the official YouTube description:

Title contender Jan Blachowicz enjoys the pool and the travel, as does Sijara Eubanks. Champ Israel Adesanya watches his coaches train. Co-headliner Dominick Reyes plays basketball with his team and family, and then the group bikes around Fight Island.
