It’s that time again! Invicta FC 6 is this Saturday and so we made another video previewing the main event.  This time, Cris Cyborg and Marloes Coenen face off for the featherweight title.  We shot some stuff with Cyborg in California and we were lucky enough to have Raymond Astudillo in Holland help us interview [...]

FOCUS: UFC 159
FOCUS: UFC 159

Another edition of Focus for y’all.  One thing I’ve been noticing in the YouTube comments is the fact, and it is certainly a fact that’s not lost on me, the photos aren’t great.  Well, they aren’t all my best photos — just the ones I felt like discussing.  The idea is to try and bring [...]

All Angles: Michelle Waterson
All Angles: Michelle Waterson

Here’s our second in the All Angles series, where we show you just a little bit of behind-the-scenes and some different perspectives on a fight — in this case, Michelle Waterson challenging Invicta champion, Jessica Penne. It was an emotional roller coaster even color correcting this piece because I had to watch it many times [...]

TUF 18 Tryouts
TUF 18 Tryouts

Casey and I stayed an extra day in Las Vegas to document the first ever Ultimate Fighter tryouts for women.  It was a momentous occasion we couldn’t miss and I was extremely happy for all the women and I wanted to meet everyone. Watch our video where we meet a few of the women who [...]

Invicta FC5: Road to Penne vs Waterson

We spent a few days out in Albuquerque back in February with Michelle Waterson and a few days in March with the champ, Jessica Penne, to shoot this preview show for Invicta FC 5.  It’s been a wild week of editing — pushed back by the amount of time we spent traveling for other shows [...]

Focus: UFC 154

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in the States and we’ve just returned home from Montreal, Canada.  There’s so much to be thankful for as an MMA fan. UFC 154 culminated in raw energy and emotion colliding before the seventeen thousand fans at the Bell Center.  I’m grateful for fighters fighting with their hearts out, for letting [...]

Meet The Invicta 3 Fighters
Meet The Invicta 3 Fighters

Past fashionably late, I’m battling some cold and heat exhaustion combo, and my insomnia is kicking me into some action.  I wanted to share with you some of the studio work we did last week at Invicta FC 3 and a video Casey shot so you could meet a few of the fighters on the [...]

Genesis of Invicta FC Video

Finally! We’ve been sitting on this video for a while, waiting for the MMAFighting.com release.  Back in April, Casey and I went to Kansas City and shot Invicta Fighting Championships from all angles.  I took photography of the event, but I also did video portraits of every fighter.  Casey shot video on fight night and [...]

Invicta Fights Photo Shoot
Invicta Fights Photo Shoot

We are in Kansas City for Invicta Fighting Championships.  Yesterday, we did portrait sessions with the fighters from midday to midnight.  I am pretty beat but we still have so much more to do!  So many of these women I photographed when I first started covering fights!  I am excited to see so many of [...]

Tokyo Days
Tokyo Days

Through our work here at MMA Fighting, we’ve had the opportunity to travel the world covering MMA events. UFC 144 took us to Tokyo, Japan, and we wanted to share our experiences not just in bringing you photos and Ariel’s interviews from the fights, but also our experience of the city. We were fortunate enough to have [...]

My Favorite Photos of 2011
My Favorite Photos of 2011

2011 was a banner year for MMA.  More events than ever, new champs, organizations merging, fighters reinventing themselves, and fighters retiring. We put together this video of my favorite photos from 2011 so that I could share a little bit about each picture with you.  I left out maybe 100 photos.  I really couldn’t make [...]

Strikeforce Presser Highlights

What’s up dudes and dudettes?? We’re in the middle of Strikeforce fight week for Rockhold vs Jardine and I gotta say, I’m already beat.  Today was insane-o but in the best way.  We had a press conference midday flanked by studio work.  While I was busy getting the portraits done for Strikeforce, Casey was clipping [...]

Best Of 2011 Interviews

Or really, Ariel Helwani’s greatest hits as compiled by the main dude himself, E. Casey Leydon. This was tons of fun and craziness to put together. And it clocks in at a ridiculous 50 minutes total… I think. I don’t know. Just watch! Or don’t. Casey only spent all of the holidays putting it together. [...]

The U of MMA
The U of MMA

Sometimes, we cut a little time out to do things for fun, for art, to keep our fascination.  We made this lovely video for our friends at the U of MMA.  Right now, we’re sitting at the Pasadena location of Intelligentsia, one of my favorite coffee places in town because I enjoyed both an amazing [...]

Fight Journal: Pat Barry
Fight Journal: Pat Barry

We’re in DC (Casey is sporting his Dischord Records shirt) for UFC Live on Versus 6 and we got to follow Pat Barry around for the day.  It was lots of fun and yesterday’s news even validated my personal hatred of cantaloupe.  So we’ve got a video for you of Pat Barry going to the [...]

Training Camp: Jon Jones
Training Camp: Jon Jones

We’re back with a post-fight releasing of a pre-fight look into Jon Jones’ training camp. During a July visit to Albuquerque, Greg Jackson and Jon Jones were generous enough to let us into their training session, showing us the learning process specific to Jones’ title defense against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.  It’s fascinating to see, shot [...]
