UFC 183 Video: Embedded, episode 3: Anderson Silva in good spirits

Episode 3 of UFC 183 Embedded focusses mainly on Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz, who have their hands full with PR, media and fans, only a few days removed from their big fight.

As fight week for UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz progresses, the show's headliners are posing for promo pictures and videos and meet their media obligations before they finally square-off on stage.

Also, Nick Diaz doesn't seem to be happy with how his highlight videos have been edited and would like to find the person responsible for it. Later he explains why he missed his flight to Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, Anderson Silva appears to be in very good spirits, as he jokes around with the camera team and UFC staff and even hands out some advice to Sara McMann. The special aura that surrounds this man can be felt by just watching it. Or, as UFC site coordinator Burt Watson puts it:

"Anderson Silva back... It's just as good for him, for the sport, for the fans, everybody involved. It feels real good!"
