UFC 297 ‘Embedded,’ No. 6: ‘We’re not going to compare shapes. We’re not even in the same bracket’

The UFC is back for its first pay-per-view of 2024, and the popular “Embedded” fight week video series is here to document what’s happening behind the scenes.

UFC 297 takes place Saturday at Scotia Bank Arena in Toronto. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews and early prelims on ESPN+.

In the main event, middleweight champion Sean Strickland (28-5 MMA, 15-5 UFC) looks to make his first title defense against challenger Dricus Du Plessis (20-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC). And in the co-main event, top contenders Mayra Bueno Silva (10-2-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC) and Raquel Pennington (15-8 MMA, 12-5 UFC) will meet for the vacant women’s bantamweight title.

The sixth episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters while they get ready for fight week. Here is the UFC’s description of the episode from YouTube:

“Athletes make weight on Friday morning. Dricus Du Plessis refuels at breakfast. All the athletes face off once more and the two title bouts are set: champ Sean Strickland vs. Du Plessis and Raquel Pennington vs. Mayra Bueno Silva.”
