The Ultimate Fighting Championship caps off the year with UFC 232, headlined by two title fights. There was some last-minute chaos — with the event moving from Las Vegas to California in the week leading up to the fight — but now the pay-per-view is just a couple of days away.
In the main event, former champion Jon Jones makes his return to the Octagon for a light heavyweight title fight against Alexander Gustafsson, a rematch of a bout that was once the toughest test of his career. The co-main event, meanwhile, features a superfight in the women’s division with bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes moving up a division to square off against featherweight queen Cris Cyborg.
Ahead of this weekend’s event, the UFC uploaded its behind-the-scenes YouTube series “UFC Embedded” to give you an up-close look at what the fighters go through on fight week as they make their final preparations for Saturday night.
Below is all of the information you will need leading up to the fight, including every episode of UFC 232 Embedded.
