UFC 231 Embedded: ‘Your Toughest Opponent Is In The Mirror’
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the pay-per-view (PPV) market this Saturday night (Dec. 8, 2018) to stage UFC 231: “Holloway vs Ortega,” which takes place inside Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The main event will feature a heavily-anticipated Featherweight title fight between division champion Max Holloway taking on undefeated (14-0-1, 6-0-1 UFC) submission wizard, Brian Ortega. In the co-headlining act, former UFC women’s Strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will look to collect her second title in as many divisions when she faces off against former Mauy Thai rival, Valentina Shevchenko, for the vacant Flyweight strap.
Before all four combatants get it on Saturday night, take a behind-the-scenes look at the fight week preparations each fighter goes through as fight night draws closer. Though I’m not too sure UFC will be thrilled to see it’s champion headliner snowboarding a few days from fight night.
