KISS: Keep it simple, stupid.
That's exactly what Gegard Mousasi is doing ahead of his Middleweight showdown against Thales Leites in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 84, which takes place this Saturday afternoon (Feb. 27, 2016) at O2 Arena in London, England. The talented Dutch striker took all of two minutes to pack in the latest episode of "Embedded," bringing just the bare essentials: His most important mouthpiece, nuts protector, and a pile of t-shirts and shorts. Leites, meanwhile, seemingly packed even less, banking on a gaggle of new Reebok gear once he lands in Britain.
Meanwhile, former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva was already in town, preparing for his 185-pound showdown against hometown hero and perennial division contender, Michael Bisping, a match up that has been bandied about for several years now.
And it's all going down this weekend, airing live -- and exclusively -- on UFC Fight Pass.
Let's checkout the official YouTube description for episode two of "Embedded:"
"On Episode 2 of UFC Fight Night London Embedded, headlining native son Michael Bisping gives his American teammates a tour of their host city before getting in a training session. Outside Rio de Janeiro, middleweight contender Thales Leites goes for a hot-weather hike and gears up for travel. A hemisphere over, Leites' opponent Gegard Mousasi packs the essentials for his journey from Leiden to London. And former middleweight champion Anderson Silva makes time for a high-energy workout before his fight week duties begin."
