We’re up to installment number three of the Embedded series for UFC 216, and with the event taking place in Las Vegas, there’s a pretty big elephant in the room that people have somewhat ignored: the awful mass shooting that took place there last weekend.

Well, Kevin Lee finally addresses it in this episode. Lee, you see, lives in Vegas, so he’s well-acquainted with the city when it’s normal – and after a mass shooting, there’s no way normalcy can be in the equation.

Like a true fighter, Lee of course says he isn’t going to let the horrific thing the shooter did get to him, otherwise the “bad guys” win.

As a New Yorker who lived through 9/11, I have to say, “That’s the spirit.”
