    Just saw the second embedded for Anderson vs Bisping and I was curious if anyone knew why he's almost not in it? He wasn't in the first episode and now only at the end a little bit were you saw them training already at the hotel.

    I like those embedded because you get to see a little bit in the life of the fighters just before they go at it.
    (Btw, Leites seems like a realy cool dude!)

    Oh and sorry for not making another thread about Conor/Diaz/Aldo/RDA

    I was thinking the same thing, not sure what it is all about. Seems like it is more focussed on Bisping.

    Yes probably, but the first one are most of the time the most interesting imo.

    Unfortunately the Count is going to think he is in Australia after Silva knocks him stupid. He will be seeing stars with his Union Jack!

    Guess it depends on if Anderson wants to speak English or tell us his English sucks when it's been proven he can speak it fluently.

    Does anyone knows at what time the fights take place? Since it's on London I guess it's not on the usual time for the people in the American continent.

    Well, the UFC has a bad habit when do shows on another continent, to still try and cater to their American fans. Like FOX in Stockholm, the main event was somewhere around 2am local time, in Melbourne it was in the morning or something like that. It's really annoying they do this.

    MAIN CARD AT
    4/1PM ETPT

    So what time is this in GMT? 1pm PT is I think 10pm GMT? Which is also better then the event in Sweden.

    I'm used to stay awake til 3-4am here in Brazil to watch fights (plus more 3 hours discussing the outcome here on SD), watching this one so early will be a blessing.

    Seems like most of the focus is on Bisping for this one. UFC probably thinks he can sell the fight better with his mouth and they can just portray Silva as the silent assassin type.

    He's aware that he speaks broken english so it's much safer to have a translator to not send wrong messages to the public.

    Trust me I back.

    Over here in Belgium there's no legal way to watch PPV's, I couldn't even buy a fight pass subscription 'not available in your country'. So I download them. (Dana don't get mad, it's your own fault, I tried to do it the right way but you won't let us) Which means that the events are on saturday and on Sunday morning I get up, prepare a nice breakfast and watch the fights. When it's a good event I watch them sunday afternoon when some friends come over. It's already a bit of tradition. And no social media, news websites, and all that untill I watched the fights. The only other way I would have is to stay awake untill around 3am (and that will only be the start of the main) and watch it on a crappy stream, so I rather wait.

    (I'm not promoting downloading the events, but for us, it's the only way to watch them)

    I don't think that's it. I mean they've shown also a lot about Leites. And it's with subtitles, so to all of you who are complaining about the English issue, doesn't matter in this case. In all embedded episodes the 2 main fighters are promoted the most. Now you have Bisping, Leites and Moussasi in the first and second, and 30 seconds of Anderson in the second. I was just wondering what's up with that.
    With the shitstorm of last year he may want to keep his family a bit out of it all?
