The UFC’s biggest fight week of the year has arrived and the mammoth UFC 175 event is just around the corner. The pay-per-view event will go down this Saturday night live from the Mandalay Bay Events Center featuring two title fights.
In the main event of the evening, UFC middleweight champion puts his strap on the line for the first time against someone other than Anderson Silva. The former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida is hoping to take the title from Weidman on Saturday night and become only the third fighter in UFC history to become champion in two separate weight classes.
In the co-main event, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey looks to defend her title for the fourth time in her tenth professional MMA fight. Stepping in the cage with Rousey will be the jiu-jitsu specialist Alexis Davis. Although Davis is a huge underdog, she is looking to shock the world and be the first person to defeat Ronda Rousey.
In preparation for the event, the UFC has unveiled yet another UFC Embedded video blog series. In the video below, check out the first episode of “UFC 175: Embedded” featuring the fighters arriving in Vegas for the start of fight week.
