UFC 285 ‘Embedded,’ No. 4: Jon Jones gets a trim that would make his brothers proud
The UFC is back with its third pay-per-view of the year, which means the popular “Embedded” fight-week video series is here to document what’s happening behind the scenes.
UFC 285 takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
In the main event, the vacant heavyweight title is up for grabs as Jon Jones (26-1 MMA, 20-1 UFC) makes his highly anticipated divisional debut after a three-year layoff to take on former interim champion Ciryl Gane (11-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC). And in the co-headliner, women’s flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko (23-3 MMA, 12-2 UFC) goes for her eighth consecutive title defense when she meets Alexa Grasso (15-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC), who seeks to become the first Mexican woman to win a UFC belt.
