The UFC returns Saturday with UFC 267, which means the fight week video series “Embedded” is back to document the fighters behind the scenes.
UFC 267 takes place at Etihad Arena in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. The entire card streams on ESPN+ without a pay-per-view cost.
The top of the bill features two title fights. In the main event, light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz (28-8 MMA, 11-5 UFC) takes on former title challenger Glover Teixeira (32-7 MMA, 15-5 UFC). And in the co-headliner, former bantamweight champ Petr Yan (15-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) and Cory Sandhagen (14-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) will square off for an interim 135-pound title.
The main card also features a marquee lightweight bout between Dan Hooker (21-10 MMA, 11-6 UFC) and Islam Makhachev (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC), as well as the highly anticipated return of middleweight Khamzat Chimaev (9-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) against Li Jingliang (18-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC).
The third episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters as they go throughout their fight week. Here is the description from YouTube:
