UFC 231 Embedded: Vlog Series – Episode 3
UFC 231: Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega takes place Saturday at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
The UFC has released the Embedded Vlogs which previews the two title fights that are scheduled for the night and you can watch Episode #1 above. In the main event, featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) returns after a year-long layoff and he will meet Brian Ortega (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC). In the co-main event, the vacant women’s flyweight belt is on the line as former bantamweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko (15-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) takes on ex-strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC).
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 3 of UFC 231 Embedded, featherweight champion Max Holloway endures a case of mistaken identity and gets physical therapy. Former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk packs for her trip, and fellow flyweight title contender Valentina Shevchenko impresses the locals at an area gym. Featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega and his SoCal-based team get their first taste of the Toronto cold. Lightweight Justin Gaethje greets Ortega in the hotel hallway, and UFC 231 strawweight Nina Ansaroff teases Jedrzejczyk. Athletes try on their fight kits, and Shevchenko receives a special gift. UFC 231 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two world title fights taking place Saturday, December 8th on Pay-Per-View.
