The UFC’s popular “Embedded” series returns to get you ready for Saturday’s UFC 234 event in Australia.
The UFC’s first pay-per-view of the year takes place this weekend with UFC 234, and the promotion’s popular “Embedded” series returns to get you ready.
UFC 234 takes place Saturday at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and UFC Fight Pass.
In the night’s main event, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker (20-4 MMA, 11-2 UFC) faces challenger Kelvin Gastelum (15-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) in a showcase of two of the world’s most dynamic young fighters at 185 pounds. The co-main event sees undefeated rising star Israel Adesanya (15-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) compete in his most high-profile fight to date against former longtime UFC champ Anderson Silva (34-8 MMA, 17-4 UFC), who returns from a two-year layoff.
The second episode of “UFC 234 Embedded” previews those two contests and catches up with other fighters on the card, as well. Here’s the UFC’s description:
