We are just a few more sleeps away from fight night, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is set to stage the UFC 239: “Jones vs. Santos” pay-per-view (PPV) event this Saturday night (July 6, 2019) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In the main event of the evening, Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones will defend his title against heavy-handed Thiago Santos, who will be competing for his first-ever world title.
In the co-main event, the first-ever UFC women’s “champ-champ,” Amanda Nunes, will defend her Bantamweight title against Holly Holm, who is looking to regain her title after losing it a couple of years ago to Miesha Tate. Also, Luke Rockhold will make his Light Heavyweight debut against Jan Blachowicz, while Ben Askren meets Jorge Masvidal in Welterweight action.
Before all of the action goes down in “Sin City,” all of the main players give you a behind-the-scenes look at just what goes down as they gear up for fight night.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 4 of UFC 239 Embedded, light heavyweight Luke Rockhold turns his suite into a workout facility. Welterweight Michael Chiesa, amused by a message from opponent Diego Sanchez, keeps his training serious while joking around with Rockhold and middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. Athletes from the top three fights – light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, challenger Thiago Santos, double champion Amanda Nunes, former bantamweight champion Holly Holm, quick-witted welterweight Ben Askren, and confident opponent Jorge Masvidal— entertain fans with their words and moves at a packed open workout session.
