It’s time for UFC 223 Embedded 2 as the former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Learns of the change to the main event on her way to New York. And weighs whether it’s all an elaborate April Fools’ joke. In snowy Brooklyn, lightweight title contender Khabib Nurmagomedov continues training and doing media, grateful to have an opponent.
Meanwhile the current strawweight champion Rose Namajunas shows off her compost garden and dodges tennis balls in Colorado. Featherweight champion Max Holloway lands on the East Coast and promptly hits the gym, where he’s quickly surrounded by members of his opponent’s camp — and Khabib himself.
