Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal
Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal

Here’s the gallery for tonight’s fights. I’ll post up a few words as soon as I get to a stopping point.  Typing in the car is fun but making me a little queasy. Congratulations to Gilbert Melendez and to Jorge Masvidal as well for a great fight. KJ Noons looked fantastic in his return.  And […]

Lost Photos
Lost Photos

Shooting every week, sometimes I will go do a shoot and completely forget about posting the photos.  Usually, it’s because it’s for a magazine and they’ll end up using one or two shots.  Meanwhile, there’s forty or fifty winners just sitting on the hard drive, never to be seen. Here’s a couple from DREAM.16 in […]

Fight Day Prep
Fight Day Prep

Day three and I’m just going to apologize now because this snuck up on me and now I’m at the Air Canada Centre trying to blaze through this and get to a quick press dinner so I can shoot the fights without being super grumpy Esther. So what better than to tell you what I […]

My Favorite Fight Photo
My Favorite Fight Photo

While I’ve had lots of shots I love over the years, there’s only one photo that comes to mind as my absolute favorite.  I know it’s good because it makes me uncomfortable and sad to see. So for day two of the blog challenge, I wanted to share the photo that I’ve taken that I […]

1. Story Behind The Photo
1. Story Behind The Photo

Okay. I’ve been challenged to post here every day for thirty days since we’ve been assholes and so so absent. And I wasn’t going to take it on, since I’m leaving town for the holidays right in the middle of this thirty day stretch and because I don’t want to post on New Years’ Eve […]

Reign Training Center
Reign Training Center

We took a jaunt down Interstate 5 to Reign Training Center, visiting Mark Muñoz training for his bout with Chris Leben next week.  I shot mostly video, and that you’ll see next week, but for now I’ll share the few stills I managed to take while zoning out and being a bad cameraperson. For that […]

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 […]

UFC on FOX Presser
UFC on FOX Presser

UFC had a press conference for their inaugural event on FOX just a quick jaunt from All Elbows headquarters at the W Hotel in Hollywood today.  Cain Velasquez, Junior Dos Santos, Fox Sports president Eric Shanks, and Dana White were on hand to answer questions from press and fans. There were aluminum bottles of Sprite […]

A look inside two camps.
A look inside two camps.

We were privileged to get an inside look at X Gym in Rio De Janeiro and watch Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, and Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante spar.  Of course, like most camps, we couldn’t video tape the all-out sparring session but we photographed it and incorporated it into Casey’s video on our day there. […]

SF Challengers 4 Fight Night
SF Challengers 4 Fight Night

  Funny reffing again mars a Strikeforce show as the Vieira vs Ford ends with Ford unconscious for what I would guess to be at least ten seconds, where I saw his leg go limp then a good while later, convulse. And what would’ve been the great welcome party for Rowdy Ronda Rousey was ruined […]

Voelker vs Bowling III Fight Night
Voelker vs Bowling III Fight Night

FINALLY. I am done with my weekend of MMA and local travels and I have finished sifting through Strikeforce Challengers: Voelker vs Bowling III.   Certainly it was different to cover Strikeforce from the media standpoint for the first time in over two years but it gave me a chance to brush up on shooting […]

Bowling vs Voelker III Weigh-ins
Bowling vs Voelker III Weigh-ins

Hey! Quick post of the weigh-in photos! Will regale you with stories later in the evening! Everybody made weight, awesome!   *Edit* I’m here in Las Vegas covering Strikeforce Challengers: Bowling vs Voelker III and eight glasses of water into my day and I am still parched.  Shot today’s weigh-ins at the infamously dim Key […]

Training Camp: Mayhem Miller
Training Camp: Mayhem Miller

Last week, just hours before we all knew that Jason Miller would be the next coach on TUF, he was training for Aaron Simpson.  We went to Reign Training Center to catch up with Mayhem, who has been out of action since he fought Sakuraba last September. Here’s the video of our day with Jason […]

A Night At U of MMA
A Night At U of MMA

During our recovery week (better known as Tax Time), we took a Sunday off to check out some local amateur fights put on by our friend Turi Altavilla at the Avalon in Hollywood.  Dubbed, University of MMA, and sporting solid poster art, Turi wanted to put together a promotion that wasn’t all skulls and blood […]

SF Challengers Stockton
SF Challengers Stockton

Just returned from Stockton and on my way to San Diego for Strikeforce: Diaz vs Daley.  While I have no answers for you as what will happen to yours truly, I wanted to share my gallery from the event because despite the massive plumes of smoke floating through the cage during the fights, I did […]

TUF 14 Tryouts
TUF 14 Tryouts

We went to the TUF Season 14 Tryouts in Newark, NJ to see what it’s like to audition for The Ultimate Fighter.  This is the first time TUF will feature bantamweights and featherweights, so we were pretty thrilled to see our favorite weight classes represented.  We were also glad to see some of our old […]

Cavalcante vs Henderson Fight Night
Cavalcante vs Henderson Fight Night

Another great night of fights — including two you didn’t even get to see if you weren’t at the Nationwide Arena on Saturday, but fret not, Strikeforce is working on getting the video out to you all very soon.  I’ve included photos from those two bouts, Gurgel vs Vaughan and Bowling vs Thornburg, so you […]

Feijao vs Henderson Fight Week
Feijao vs Henderson Fight Week

Fight night is upon us! Nothing to get you in the mood for some face-smashing like going through the photos we’ve been taking all week and watching Casey’s fight journal with current Strikeforce women’s welterweight champ, Marloes Coenen.  I make an appearance in the video, giggling like a fool.  Enjoy! BONUS! Old magazines I found […]

All Elbows Down Under
All Elbows Down Under

Yep. We’re in Sydney! I’m doing some photography work for Heavy MMA and Casey is here, as always, for MMAfighting.com. I just wanted to keep you guys up to date on our whereabouts and what we’ve been up to and where we’re going. Next week, we’ll be at Strikeforce: Feijao vs Henderson.  This week, we’re […]

Fedor vs Silva Fight Night
Fedor vs Silva Fight Night

Last night, I witnessed the end of an era and the beginning of another. I remember years ago, sitting with Antonio Silva and his manager Alex Davis in Corpus Christi, Texas in the lobby of a Holiday Inn, them telling me that Silva would beat Fedor. I’m happy and proud of Silva for his achievement […]

Fedor vs Silva Fight Week!
Fedor vs Silva Fight Week!

Fight week is coming to a close as we pass midnight here in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  And I am so excited about this tournament. Maybe it’s because I really like saying Grand Prix.  It sounds sophisticated. Also, it’s fucking great. This week has been a good chance to meet a lot of fans and […]

Diaz vs Cyborg Fight Night
Diaz vs Cyborg Fight Night

Ten pro fights. Ten finishes.  What a night of fights!  And to top it all off, drunk hecklers threw a water bottle at me and landed (and beer at the CSAC officials and timekeepers).  I lost my cool for a second but remembered that I still had a job to do and ran into the […]

Strikeforce Challengers Nashville
Strikeforce Challengers Nashville

I know I’ve been absent for a while and I do heartily apologize.  We’ve been perpetually in the air and have much to show you. But first! Last night was Strikeforce Challengers in Nashville, TN, and I have photos to share with you.  Then, I promise, I’ll have loads of stories from Japan and beyond. […]

Henderson vs Babalu Fight Night
Henderson vs Babalu Fight Night

Holy smokes! So much happened last night. When I close my eyes, I can hear the sound of hard punches echoing. The flat, dull, thud of gloves hitting their target replays each time I recount the fights.  It’s not a lovely sound by most people’s standards. Also, friend of the site Pat Cummins, won his […]
