While the first episode of UFC Fight Night London Embedded didn't feature the event's arguably biggest star at all, Anderson Silva is finally pictured at the end of episode two. The former middleweight champion is shown during a training session, if only a brief and very light one, and speaks a few measured words.
"I'm very happy to be here and to be fighting Bisping," says the Brazilian superstar, who will return from a 12-month suspension to headline Saturday's event. "Both of us are very experienced, and fighting here in London will be great for our legacies. I hope we can put on a great show for the fans. It's going to be a heck of a fight, he's well prepared, but so am I. And I came to win."
Also in this episode: Michael Bisping shows his teammates around to all the famous sites in London, Gegard Mousasi packs his "mouth guard and nut protector" and leaves Holland for the US, and Thales Leites shows us a beautiful view over his hometown.
UFC Fight Night London takes places this Saturday in London's o2 Arena and is headlined by a middleweight bout between Anderson Silva an Michael Bisping. Gegard Mousasi vs. Thales Leites will serve as the evening's co-main event.
