UFC 183 'Embedded' video blog, Ep. 1: Nick Diaz goes missing, Miesha Tate plays nice with Sara McMann

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few days away from its UFC 183: "Silva vs. Diaz" pay-per-view (PPV) mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which takes place this Saturday night (Jan. 31, 2015) at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

That means it's time to roll out the pre-fight "Embedded" video blog spotlighting the featured fighters for this weekend's event. Unfortunately, that list of names will not include Nick Diaz, despite top billing, as "logistics issues" kept the Stockton slugger behind.

Forget Carmen Sandiego, where in the world is Nick Diaz?!?

The cameras were able to relocate to California to capture his opponent, Anderson Silva, but perhaps unwilling to travel an extra 350 miles for his opponent, because the production team was already burned once before. True, "The Spider" once did some no-showing of his own, but the promotion enjoys picking on DIaz.

Elsewhere in the UFC 183 "Embedded" video blog, Kelvin Gastelum tries to figure out how to pronounce "Tyron" Woodley, and Miesha Tate and Sara McMann have friendly run-in during an autograph session (one "Cupcake" will have to participate in).

Good times.
