UFC 239 Embedded, Episode 3: Head-First Into Fight-Week

UFC 238 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two title fights taking place Saturday on Pay-Per-View.

On episode three of UFC 238 Embedded, flyweight title challenger Jessica Eye packs for a return trip to the Midwest.

Headliners Henry Cejudo and Marlon Moraes both prepare to claim the vacant bantamweight title, and lightweight foes Tony Ferguson and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone dive into fight week. Nina Ansaroff, accompanied by double-champ Amanda Nunes, nearly crosses paths with opponent Tatiana Suarez and camp in the UFC office.

Athlete check-in draws strawweight Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Aljamain Sterling, and Sterling’s cornerman Al Iaquinta. And flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko impresses by doing both interviews and math.
