Filed under: News, UFC, Videos

The UFC visits Detroit this week, and the promotion has rolled out its “Embedded” treatment for a preview of Saturday’s UFC 218 event.

UFC 218 takes place at Little Caesars Arena. and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In the headliner, featherweight champion Max Holloway (18-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) puts his belt on the line against the man from which he took it, Jose Aldo (26-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC).

In the co-main event, a pair of dangerous heavyweights collide in hopes of gaining a title shot, with Francis Ngannou (10-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) vs. Alistair Overeem (43-15 MMA, 8-4 UFC).

In the sixth and final episode, the fighters sweat out the pounds for official weigh-ins, where Justin Gaethje’s poor towel performance gives us a glimpse of Holloway and his “Hawaiian snake.”  Things that get a little rowdy at the ceremonial weigh-ins.

Check out the full episode above.
