UFC 190 'Embedded' video blog (Ep. 3): Shopping for phallic fruit with a 'Skyscraper' in Rio

We're that much closer to UFC 190, which takes place this Saturday night (Aug. 1, 2015) inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

That means the stars of the pay-per-view (PPV) show are starting to trickle into town and the "Embedded" camera crew was on the scene to give fight fans a glimpse into their fight week preparations.

Light Heavyweight legends Mauricio Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira did some promotional work ahead of their co-main event match, as well as top-ranked Strawweight standouts Claudia Gadelha and Jessica Aguilar, who will kick-off the main card action.

Stefan Struve was also looking to settle in, but "Skyscraper" wanted to first hunt down some comfort food to feed his 7,' 271-pound Dutch frame ahead of his Heavyweight showdown against Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera.

It's not that simple.

Check out the full description for Episode 3 of "Embedded:"

On Episode 3 of UFC 190 Embedded, American-based fighters find home comforts abroad, as heavyweight Stefan Struve seeks familiar foods and women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey relaxes with a soothing scent. Northerner Bethe Correia arrives in Rio for her title shot and Los Angeles transplant Shogun Rua returns to his home country for a light heavyweight rematch. The locals then descend on the host hotel: legendary twins Minotauro Nogueira and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, as well as strawweight Claudia Gadelha.

With UFC 190's open workouts already in the rear-view mirror, it leaves the final pre-fight press conference tomorrow (Thursday) and the official weigh-in event on Friday as the last of the formalities before showtime.
