The UFC returns to pay-per-view Saturday with UFC 252, and the promotion’s popular “Embedded” series is back to help build the excitement ahead of the action.
UFC 252 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card streams on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
In the main event, a highly anticipated trilogy takes place as heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will defend his title against former champ-champ Daniel Cormier to settle their 1-1 tie. And in the co-headliner, rising prospect Sean O’Malley takes on Marlon Vera in a key bantamweight showdown.
The first episode of “Embedded” follows three of the featured fighters as fight night draws near. Below is the UFC’s description:
Daniel Cormier trains in the swimming pool, practices his golf swing and watches UFC with his family. Sean O’Malley works hard and games hard. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic shows off his man cave ahead of his rubber match against Cormier.
