UFC 261 ‘Embedded’ video blog (Ep. 6): ‘I’m gonna wipe that face clean tomorrow’ – MMA Root

We’re just hours away from UFC 261 later tonight (Saturday, April 24, 2021) live on ESPN + PPV from inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida, and the promotion has removed the final episode of ” Embedded “.

The main event of the night will feature a rematch between UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal. The two met last year, but “Gamebred” only had a week to prepare for the fight. He will have more time for a rematch and will try to prove himself the best welterweight on the planet. Usman will seek his fourth consecutive title defense.

UFC 261 will also show two other title fights. The first was a co-feature clash in which she pitted dominant female strawweight champion Zhang Weili against fan favorite “Thug” Rose Namajunas. The second will be a women’s flyweight title fight between reigning champion Valentina Shevchenko and perennial contender Jessica Andrade.

Ahead of the action and promotion welcoming a crowd of fans, the final episode of UFC 261 “Embedded” was released. The full video can be viewed in the player above and features final weight cuts, ceremonial looks, and some last-minute trash talk between Usman and “Gamebred.”
