One of the unique things the UFC does before big events is the “Embedded” series, and UFC 260 has been given the special treatment.
The series follows the fighters during the week, showing them at home, in the gym and preparing for action.
UFC 260 features Stipe Miocic defending his heavyweight title against Francis Ngannou. The two met three years ago, with Miocic scoring a decision victory.
