'UFC 223 Embedded,' No. 3: Joanna Jedrzejczyk channels 'Get Smart' with a shoe phone


The UFC returns to pay-per-view this weekend with the most anticipated event of the year so far, and the promotion has rolled out its “Embedded” treatment to preview UFC 223.

The event takes place Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In the headliner featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) takes on Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) for the undisputed lightweight title, a booking that was made on just six days’ notice following Tony Ferguson’s withdrawal because of injury. And in the co-main event, women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas (7-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) defends her title in a rematch with Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC), who she defeated five months ago to win the belt.

Here’s the UFC’s description of the third “Embedded” episode:

On Episode 3 of UFC 223 Embedded, a well-rested Joanna Jedrzejczyk trains to challenge for the strawweight belt she long held. Lightweight title contender Khabib Nurmagomedov travels with his team en masse to a nearby gym. His fellow headliner, featherweight champion Max Holloway, readies to stick to his game plan regardless of opponent. UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa enjoys being on his family’s home turf. Strawweight champion Rose Namajunas arrives in Brooklyn, as does Chiesa’s opponent, former champion Anthony Pettis. UFC 223 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two championship bouts at UFC 223: Khabib vs. Holloway on Saturday, April 7 on Pay-Per-View.
