Saturday, December 11 sees the UFC’s final event of 2022 as the promotion finishes the year with a stacked fight card for UFC 269 at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas.
Headlining the card is a battle for the undisputed UFC lightweight title, as newly-crowned champion Charles Oliveira puts the title on the line for the first time against former interim champion Dustin Poirier. There’s also a title bout in the co-main event, as all-conquering two-division women’s champion Amanda Nunes puts her bantamweight title up for grabs against first-time title challenger Julianna Pena.
Ahead of the event, the UFC’s “Embedded” cameras are following the fighters behind the scenes as they work their way through fight week, from their final moments at home to their arrival in Las Vegas and their media obligations before the weigh-ins and the final faceoffs before fight night itself.
As described on the UFC’s official YouTube channel, on Episode 1, “Julianna Pena trains to shock the world, Charles Oliveira adjusts to life as champion, Dustin Poirier arrives in style, and Dominick Cruz returns to top form.”
