New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the pay-per-view (PPV) market this Saturday night (May 12, 2018) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with UFC 224 (fight card here) which is set to go down inside Jeunesse Arena.

Before the fists fly later this evening in Brazil, check out the latest, greatest, and final episode of UFC 224 “Embedded,” which can be seen above courtesy of UFC. This time around, the action focuses on final weigh-in preparations, Mackenzie Dern’s botched cut, and Ronaldo Souza running into a ‘scary’ Bruce Buffer in the hotel lobby.

From the official YouTube description:

On Episode 7 of UFC 224 Embedded, fighters prepare to make weight on Friday. Lyoto Machida hits the sauna to shed the last few pounds. Later that morning, all fighters make weight except for Mackenzie Dern. Jacare Souza runs into Octagon announcer Bruce Buffer on the way to the ceremonial weigh-ins. The combatants face off one last time, and Amanda Cooper refuses to shake the hand of opponent. Amanda Nunes and Raquel Pennington square off once more before their championship bout. UFC 224 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the women’s bantamweight championship at UFC 224 on Saturday, May 12th on Pay-Per-View.
