UFC 231 is almost here, and as usual, Embedded is here as well. The show that gives you an inside look at the marquee contestants on PPVs has issued the second episode for this weekend’s big show in the Toronto, and it serves as a brief introduction to the fighters at the top of the card.

We start off in Florida with Joanna Jedrzejczyk. She’s food shopping. She says she weighs 129.4, so making weight will be very easy and she can eat what she wants. Up in the winter wonderland of Canada, Max Holloway is snowboarding with his team. He discusses liking to show up early for fights and do some cool stuff in the area.

In Toronto proper, Valentina Shevchenko is arriving. Her sister talks about getting a win last week and how she’s going to assist her. Back in Florida, Joanna is in a great mood and she feels ready. She clowns around with Mike Brown a bit and does some sparring.

Brian Ortega does a media luncheon. He talks the win over Frankie Edgar, and how his preparation for Holloway is pretty much the same as every other fight. He then does a TMZ show and shows them a different kind of choke.

Back in Toronto again, Holloway is courtside for a Raptors game, and he’s happy to be there.

And that’s it! UFC 231 goes down Saturday night in the Scotiabank Center in Toronto.
