UFC 289

The UFC is back with its seventh pay-per-view of the year, which means the popular “Embedded” fight-week video series is here to document what’s happening behind the scenes.

UFC 289 takes place Saturday at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN/ESPN+.

In the main event, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes (22-5 MMA, 15-2 UFC) takes on Mexico’s Irene Aldana (14-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC), who gets her first shot at UFC gold.

In the co-feature, Beneil Dariush (22-4-1 MMA, 16-4-1 UFC) looks to secure his shot at the title as he faces former champion Charles Oliveira (33-9 MMA, 21-9 UFC) in a big lightweight matchup.

The fourth episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters while they get ready for fight night. Here is the UFC’s description of the episode from YouTube:

Irene Aldana, Charles Oliveira, Mike Malott and Nate Landwehr continue their fight week training. Beneil Dariush faces media and his fears. Champ-champ Amanda Nunes makes history again.
