UFC 231 Embedded, Episode 6: Hours Away From Battle
On episode six of UFC 231 Embedded, featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega neutralizes his spirit in a cold swimming pool.
On Friday morning, all of the athletes make weight: birthday girl Claudia Gadelha, strawweight opponent Nina Ansaroff, former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, flyweight title contender Valentina Shevchenko, Ortega and featherweight champion Max Holloway.
“Blessed” celebrates afterward with cupcakes. Toronto fans turn out for the ceremonial weigh-ins, where the athletes face off one final time before event night.
UFC 231 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two world title fights taking place Saturday.
