The UFC is back with its eighth pay-per-view of the year, which means the popular “Embedded” fight-week video series is back to document what’s happening behind the scenes.
UFC 277 takes place Saturday at American Airlines Center in Dallas. The main card streams on ESPN+ pay-per-view following prelims on ABC, ESPN and ESPN+.
The main event features a highly anticipated rematch between Julianna Pena and Amanda Nunes after Peña shockingly submitted Nunes last December to become UFC women’s bantamweight champion. The two women also coached against each other on “The Ultimate Fighter 30.”
The co-main event features another rematch as former flyweight champion Brandon Moreno looks to reclaim gold in an interim title fight against Kai Kara-France, whom Moreno defeated by unanimous decision in December 2019.
The fifth episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters while they get ready for fight week. Here is the UFC’s description of the episode from YouTube:
Champion Julianna Peña embraces the spotlight. Brandon Moreno admires his mini-me. Alex Perez takes inspiration from a teammate. Derrick Lewis stays positive. Athletes talk 277 and face off at the press conference.
