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.
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 [...]
Whoa! Great fights! I’m still reeling from the weekend as I was launched from San Jose straight to Tokyo for the Sherdog MMA Fighter Exchange program where I’ll be following Luke Rockhold and fellow AKA fighter Wayne Phillips as they train at J-ROCK here in Tokyo. But I can’t be flyin’ off to the next [...]
This has been such a crazy week. You might not know it because I haven’t been updating at all. But maybe that’s how you know I’ve been so busy. We’ve been sweating over the Collision Course series and working for Strikeforce and AOL and stuff in the future for EA Sports and I went off [...]
Oh my. I am so exhausted. But pretty happy. As usual, I’m a wreck because I stayed up until 11 am this morning uploading and editing photos — and like the disgruntled artist I’ll forever be, I’m only partly satisfied with the work I did last night. Regardless, I wanted to share my favorite shots [...]
Feeling inspired by the new year and unusually warm winter (here in LA, anyway), I threw together two posters for the upcoming Strikeforce event on January 30th in Sunrise, FL.
hello MMA friends,
While Esther is flying back to LA from the very friendly city of St. Louis, I would like to share her pics from last night.
Not saying this as an excuse, okay, it is (but it really makes a giant difference)–I wasn’t able to shoot cageside due to the limited number of spots. I was at Strikeforce to cover the event for Fighters Only Magazine, who I shoot for quite often, and you’d think being an internationally distributed MMA magazine [...]
We are in San Jose and just returned from Strikeforce’s weigh ins for Shamrock vs Diaz. Pretty typical stuff. Lots of fighters, lots of bottles of Pedialyte, and of course Nick goes Dana White on Frank Shamrock’s lower back tattoo… same old same old. Big news: Cyborg came in at 152 for a fight at [...]
Even with the Orwellian mood, the press conference went just dandy. I recap the Strikeforce media event in pictures and a video of conference highlights.
MMAMania.com beat me to posting the pictures I took at the weigh-ins Friday, but they didn’t browse far enough into the set to find my lunch with Nick Diaz and his camp. IMMAE co-founder Rara, up here for the fights and originally from Stockton, very graciously brings me to lunch at Suzy’s (I had a [...]
