We’re counting down the days to UFC 218 and while a featherweight title is on the line in the fight between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo, you can tell there’s a certain something in the air regarding heavyweight Francis Ngannou’s title eliminator fight against Alistair Overeem.
The first episode of UFC Embedded is out for the event and it kicks off with Ngannou getting in a climb up the hills outside Las Vegas. We get to see a bit of his training before jumping over to Overeem’s camp at Jackson-Wink’s in Albuquerque New Mexico. “The Reem” is certainly looking big coming into this fight, which is good because Ngannou is a hefty dude too.
The episode also catches Jose Aldo as he wraps up training in Brazil, and we get to see a chilled out Max Holloway all bundled up for the frigid (at least in comparison to Hawaii) Las Vegas weather.
UFC 218 goes down from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday December 2nd. Make sure to tune into MMA Mania for all the news and action leading up to and through the event.
