We are just hours away from seeing Israel Adesanya defend his UFC middleweight title against undefeated rival Paulo Costa later this evening (Sat., Sept. 26, 2020) at UFC 253 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Flash Forum on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
In preparation for the massive middleweight grudge match, UFC has released the latest and greatest episode of UFC 253 “Embedded,” which can be seen in the above video player. This time around the action focuses on Adesanya’s beachside presser with “Eraser,” final weight cuts, and a high-intensity staredown between the two main event participants.
From the official YouTube description:
Israel Adesanya’s team recruits a cameraman. At a beachside presser, Adesanya and Paulo Costa face off in front of Dana White; so do Jan Blachowicz and Dominick Reyes. Pounds are shed before the weigh-in, where the main eventers have a spicy staredown.
