The fifthepisode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters while they get ready for fight week. Here is the UFC’s description of the episode from YouTube: TORONTO – The monumental UFC 300 event in April still does not have a headliner, and UFC commentator Jon Anik thinks that could be because the promotion is waiting for this weekend’s fights to play out. UFC 297 takes place Saturday at Scotiabank Arena (pay-per-view, ESPNews, ESPN+), with Sean Strickland set to put his middleweight championship on the line against Dricus Du Plessis (28-5 MMA, 15-5 UFC) in the main event. Both fighters have been asked if they would be open to making a quick turnaround for April 13 in Las Vegas, and neither completely ruled out the idea. Anik sees multiple possibilities still in play for UFC 300, which already features Justin Gaethje vs. Max Holloway for the BMF title and Zhang Weili vs. Yan Xiaonan for the strawweight belt, but thinks the result at UFC 297 will be a factor in the final decisions. “I think we could see a welterweight title fight, a middleweight title fight or a light heavyweight title fight at UFC 300 depending on what happens this weekend,” Anik told MMA Junkie. “If Dricus Du Plessis wins here, I think the foundation has been laid here for him and Izzy, depending on the health of the new champion. And certainly Sean Strickland and Khamzat Chimaev would be near the top of my life of dream fights for this year. There are plenty of opportunities and options. … I just think we’re going to get clarity for 300 and whatever title fights are added once these four championship athletes get through this business here in Toronto. As much speculation as there is around the future direction of the UFC 297 main event winner, Anik shared genuine excitement for the fight itself. It’s been a rollercoaster of a build, with Strickland and Du Plessis engaging in a heated December press conference, fighting in the crowd at a UFC card, then on UFC 297 fight week switching tone and sharing admiration for one another. Anik doesn’t think it gets much better for a 185-pound title fight and thinks Strickland vs. Du Plessis is the perfect way to start the promotion’s pay-per-view schedule for 2024. “This fight, in terms of the merits of this main event, it didn’t need any dust-up in the crowd at UFC 296,” Anik said. “It’s an outstanding main event. I have a phrase I throw out there called ‘bulletproof matchmaking.’ I just can’t see any scenario where this middleweight championship fight is not entertaining for as long as it lasts. “I think that’s good way to put it: Competitive tension. I certainly wouldn’t classify it as a grudge match. But Dricus Du Plessis is perpetually misunderstood, I believe, by MMA fans around the world. Just a really good egg. And I feel like in his heart he felt badly that he struck this nerve with Sean Strickland. Perhaps he was a little bit scared, for lack of a better adjective, at some of the threatening things that Sean was saying privately. I don’t feel like this fight needs any extra heat or friction.” For more on the card, visit MMA Junkie’s event hub for UFC 297. MMA Junkie analyst Dan Tom breaks down the UFC’s top bouts. Today, we look at the co-main event for UFC 297. UFC 297 (pay-per-view, ESPN, ESPN+) takes place Saturday at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. Staple info: Height: 5’7″ Age: 35 Weight: 135 lbs. Reach: 67.5″ Last fight: Decision win over Ketlen Vieira (Jan. 14, 2023) Camp: Altitude Team (Denver, Co.) Stance/striking style: Orthodox/kickboxing Risk management: Good Supplemental info: The co-main event in Toronto features a bantamweight title fight between two women who are familiar with kicks and their associated counters. Initially hailing from the Chute Boxe team in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mayra Bueno Silva stepped onto the UFC scene with a fully-fledged muay Thai game in tow. Traditionally plodding through space behind a high guard, Silva seems to have a natural aptitude for the art of eight limbs. From distance, Silva does well at working her ranges by consistently targeting the legs and body of her opposition. And when opponents try to push back into her with offense, Silva is not shy about throwing crashing counters to meet them in the pocket. When feeling in stride, Silva will pull out spinning elbows and sidekicks with some surprising accuracy, but the Brazilian arguably does her best work in the clinch. Aside from hard elbows to the face, Silva compliments her bodywork at range by landing brutal body knees any time she has the space or control of a collar tie. That said, Silva will have a competent clinch striker across from her this Saturday in Raquel Pennington. Despite her submission victories, many associate Pennington with her striking abilities after her performance against Jessamyn Duke on “The Ultimate Fighter.” A smart but scrappy fighter by nature, Pennington will come forward without hesitation, leaning on her feints, footwork and the occasional Superman punch to enter space. Though her teep kicks can often initiate exchanges, it is Pennington’s jab that often pays her bills on the feet. Varying her timing and tempo, Pennington will utilize her jab in multiple ways. Whether Pennington is using her jab to set up combinations or applying it in a checking fashion as she exits exchanges, the 35-year-old challenger maintains a solid sense of herself when operating inside the pocket. From counter right hands to her patent uppercut-hook returns, Pennington also does a decent job of punctuating exchanges. Whenever inside of clinch space, Pennington demonstrates improved defensive fundamentals that help fuel her sensibilities to stay busy with dirty boxing in close. That said, I am not sure how long she will want to stay in that space given the submission prowess of Silva. TORONTO – There’s only one more step to crown a new women’s bantamweight champion following the final faceoff between UFC 297 co-headliners Raquel Pennington and Mayra Bueno Silva. Pennington (15-8 MMA, 12-5 UFC) and Bueno Silva (10-2-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC) will fight for the vacant belt left behind in the wake of Amanda Nunes’ retirement this past June when they meet in Saturday’s co-main event at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto (pay-per-view, ESPN, ESPN+). Both women made weight Friday at the official weigh-ins, then hours later squared up at the ceremonial weigh-ins in a respectful manner. Watch the video above to see the final Pennington vs. Bueno Silva faceoff ahead of UFC 297. UFC is back with its first major event of 2024. The PPV year kicks off north of the border when the promotion returns to Toronto for the city's first PPV in five years when UFC 297 lands inside the Scotiabank Arena on Saturday night. There are two title fights atop the marquee, headlined by the bad blood between middleweight champion Sean Strickland and top contender Dricus Du Plessis. The pair of top 185-pounders have reached this point amid a transitional time within the division. Israel Adesanya's lengthy title reign came to an end against Alex Pereira as they continue their rivalry from kickboxing into MMA. Then, Adesanya won his belt back with a shocking TKO, only to return to the Octagon late last year and suffer a stunning loss to Strickland. Now, Strickland looks to bring some stability atop the division against a new rising challenger in du Plessis, who scored his own stunning TKO win over Robert Whittaker last year to earn this opportunity. Overshadowed by the drama is UFC 297's second title fight. Raquel Pennington and Mayra Bueno Silva compete for the vacant UFC women's bantamweight championship. The title was vacated after former two-division champion Amanda Nunes retired following a successful title defense against Irene Aldana at UFC 289 in another major Canadian city, Vancouver. Pennington, 35, enters on the longest winning streak of her career at five in a row. The last two were the most important in earning decisions over Aspen Ladd and Ketlen Vieira. Silva, meanwhile, has just one loss in her last seven Octagon appearances. She scored a submission win over former titleholder Holly Holm last July, but that result was overturned due to a failed drug test. Without it, Silva would on a four-fight win streak with the last three all coming by submission. The rest of the undercard fills out with much Canadian flair. Welterweight Mike Malott looks to continue his ascent up the rankings when he takes on veteran Neil Magny on the main card. Plus, veteran middleweights Chris Curtis and Marc-Andre Barriault are set for an interesting clash. And top featherweight contenders Movsar Evloev and Arnold Allen open the PPV festivities.
