UFC 293 ‘Embedded,’ No. 5: Dope-ass hat, cringeworthy banter

The UFC is back with its 11th 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 293 takes place Saturday at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews/ESPN+ and early prelims on ESPN+.

In the main event, Israel Adesanya (24-2 MMA, 13-2 UFC) attempts to make the first defense of his second middleweight title reign against Sean Strickland (27-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC). And in the co-headliner, Tai Tuivasa (15-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC) and Alexander Volkov (36-10 MMA, 10-4 UFC) meet in a heavyweight battle of big men.

The fifth episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters during fight week. Here is the UFC’s description of the episode from YouTube:

The City Kickboxing boys, including champ Israel Adesanya and Tyson Pedro, enjoy the benefits of sharing the card. Tai Tuivasa hits the beach. Sean Strickland explains how he wins. Adesanya meets fans and things get spicy at the high-energy press conference.
