We’re finally off the road (for a week) so I wanted to share a few things we’ve been working on for the last few weeks! Mainly, these two videos for Glory 12 coming up this Saturday. We present our video for Glory on Joe Schilling And Ky Hollenbeck
We made this video on our friend Patrick Cummins and his quest to conquer the light heavyweight division while being super fantastic.Watch!
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
We went to Montreal — this time, somehow, it was colder but we had the same, wonderful experience as usual. Fight week was as entertaining as you’d expect. Here’s our FOCUS video from our week in Montreal for UFC 158.
Invicta FC 4 went down on January 5. Now we have a highlight of sorts for you. If you follow us on twitter and have come to the site a lot, you’ll know we’re fans of what I like to refer to as, pushy-shovey music. This is a track Casey’s been dying to use [...]
We’re in Oklahoma City for the last ever Strikeforce. I’m sad to see it go. I’ve been with Strikeforce for almost four years (though honestly it seems longer). Casey did a Fight Journal with Daniel Cormier chronicling a day here in Oklahoma City as he preps for his fight against Dion Staring. Enjoy!
We put a video together of my favorite shots from 2012. Thanks for watching, hope you all have a brilliant and lovely 2013. .
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 [...]
We’re extremely excited to present to you, our behind-the-scenes feature on the inaugural World Series of Fighting. MMAFighting.com sent us to Las Vegas last weekend to glimpse how a new fight promotion comes together and we hope you enjoy watching what we’ve come up with as much as we enjoyed creating this.
This is fight night just as it sounds, just as it feels.
We went to Rio de Janeiro to cover UFC 153 and we put together this little video of my favorite photos from the week.
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 [...]
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 [...]
We enlisted the help of Bimb0_Slice, aka Meleth Gonzales, to interview fighters at the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix finals. We’re pretty amazed she agreed to do it since Meleth flew in from Turkey that same day and was basically running on fumes and media room coffee. Esther was busy being crazy as the Strikeforce photographer [...]
We’re here in San Jose covering the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix final and Melendez vs Thomson III. Check out the video highlights of today’s press conference and you can see the photos on the Showtime website here. Tune in on Saturday night to see who finishes this crazy tournament and watch tons of really great [...]
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 [...]
Just out after a hard week in training, Jason “Mayhem” Miller and Siyar Bahadurzada hit up an arcade for a little fun. You can watch Siyar Bahadurzada fight Saturday on the UFC on Fuel card in Stockholm, Sweden. Definitely tune in because Siyar’s been tearing it up outside the UFC for a while and I’m [...]
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 [...]
We hit the streets of Shinjuku with Ariel Helwani and Rampage Jackson for MMAFighting.com. Casey walked backwards, 1.4 km in each direction to the arcade, Dean holding him by the beltpack to keep him from tripping while I snapped a few shots and watched for cars and bikes. It was a ton of fun and [...]
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 [...]
