UFC 231: Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega takes place Saturday at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
The UFC has released the Embedded Vlogs which previews the two title fights that are scheduled for the night and you can watch Episode #4 above. In the main event, featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) returns after a year-long layoff and he will meet Brian Ortega (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC). In the co-main event, the vacant women’s flyweight belt is on the line as former bantamweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko (15-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) takes on ex-strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC).
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 4 of UFC 231 Embedded, strawweight Nina Ansaroff readies for battle alongside Amanda Nunes, her fiancee and UFC’s bantamweight champion; opponent Claudia Gadelha expects a match of true mixed martial arts. Featherweight champion Max Holloway celebrates his birthday with his team, family and a makeshift low-cal cake. Former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk takes recommendations for breakfast orders, featherweight title contender Brian Ortega does interviews, and Holloway poses for the camera. Jedrzejczyk gets her makeup done side-by-side with fellow flyweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko. Then the stars of both title bouts appear at the UFC 231 press conference to sound off and face off.
