The UFC returns for its final pay-per-view of 2021 on Saturday with UFC 269, which means the fight week video series “Embedded” is back to document the fighters behind the scenes.
UFC 269 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews/ESPN+ and early prelims on ESPN+.
The top of the bill features two title fights. In the main event, lightweight champion Charles Oliveira (31-8 MMA, 19-8 UFC) looks to defend his title for the first time against former interim champ Dustin Poirier (28-6 MMA, 20-5 UFC). In the co-headliner, two-division champion Amanda Nunes (21-4 MMA, 14-1 UFC) will defend her bantamweight title against a fresh opponent, a very eager Julianna Pena (10-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC).
The main card also features an exciting welterweight matchup between Geoff Neal (13-4 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and Santiago Ponzinibbio (28-4 MMA, 10-3 UFC). Former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt (12-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) will also be in action against Kai Kara-France (22-9 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and fan-favorite finisher Sean O’Malley (14-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) will face off against Raulian Paiva (21-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC).
