'UFC 215 Embedded,' No. 1: Champ Demetrious Johnson on grasshopper patrol


After a lengthy break, the UFC is back on pay-per-view, and the promotion has rolled out its “Embedded” treatment for a preview of Saturday’s UFC 215 event.

UFC 215, which features two title fights, takes place Saturday at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In the main event, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (26-2-1 MMA, 14-1-1 UFC) looks for a UFC-record 11th straight title defense when he meets challenger Ray Borg (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC). In the co-headliner, women’s bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes (14-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC) rematches Valentina Shevchenko (14-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC)

In the first episode of “Embedded,” the four headliners and co-headliners wrap up camp, which includes Borg doing some uphill sprints, Shevchenko working with her sister in Edmonton, Nunes training with girlfriend Nina Ansaroff, and Johnson on grasshopper patrol at home.

Check out the full episode above.
