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 [...]

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 [...]

UFC 121 Fight Night
UFC 121 Fight Night

As the dust settles, I’m finally working in a few days of rest — of course, that doesn’t mean much.  Resting just means doing work in a fifty mile radius of home.  But I don’t mind.  Whenever I get more than a few days off, I get restless. I’ve had a crazy run, let’s start [...]

UFC 118 Fight Gallery
UFC 118 Fight Gallery

We are back from Boston and thoroughly exhausted from our month long tour through San Diego–Oakland–Phoenix–Houston–Boston along the MMA media circuit.  My full gallery is up at MMAfighting.com, but these sixteen are my absolute favorites. Unfortunately, I saw little of Boston but I do hope to return one day with better-planned lodging and perhaps a little more [...]

UFC 117 Fight Night
UFC 117 Fight Night

I was fortunate enough to have the last moment of Silva-Sonnen right in front of me.  Seven or eight feet away. The whole night seemed to blur at that moment. I’m still not confident that it’s Monday morning. I don’t remember my flight home.  I remember the bus ride from the airport to Union Station [...]

UFC 117 Workout Photos + Video
UFC 117 Workout Photos + Video

We’re up here in mild-summered Oakland for UFC 117 fight week doing our usual comprehensive coverage for AOL Fanhouse.  I’ve got my favorite photos from yesterday’s workout and today’s very fun presser (full gallery here on AOL — with fullscreen capability) and Casey made this sweet video of the whole event. And photos! Yay! —gallery [...]

UFC on VERSUS 2 Gallery
UFC on VERSUS 2 Gallery

What a thrilling night of fights.  I have to say, as a fan, I’m constantly rewarded each time I show up to shoot.  Sure, there are a few stinkers in the mix — you can’t help that in a night of ten bouts.  I’m happiest for Takanori Gomi.  I’m glad he gets to pay off [...]

Jones vs Matyushenko Workout
Jones vs Matyushenko Workout

Down in San Diego for UFC on Versus: Jones vs Matyushenko for AOL Fanhouse/MMAfighting.com I have lots of fond memories of San Diego. In fact, I was just here, a month prior, at a friend’s wedding, having the time of my life with my Texans + New Yorkers who used to live in Texas. Today, [...]

Backstage with Joe Rogan
Backstage with Joe Rogan

During the UFC 116 fight week, Ariel Helwani seized an opportunity to interview and hang out with Joe Rogan backstage before and after his comedy show at the House of Blues, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. Casey shot the long conversation and I hung out, shooting a little but mostly listening to Joe and Ariel discuss [...]

UFC 116 Fight Night
UFC 116 Fight Night

I wanted to share a few of my favorite shots from this past weekend’s amazing UFC 116 in the less amazing but slowly warming in my heart (and burning the air) Las Vegas (thanks to some lovely new friends). The Casey and I went to Sin City last week to cover UFC 116 for AOL [...]

UFC 116 Fight Week

Check out photos from UFC 116 fight week over at MMAfighting.com / AOL Fanhouse. It’s been a crazy, hectic week, but when isn’t it? Always good times. Here’s a couple of my faves.

UFC 115 WORKOUTS & PRESSER
UFC 115 WORKOUTS & PRESSER

We’re here in Vancouver covering UFC 115 for MMAfighting.com / AOL Fanhouse.  So far, Vancouver is lovely.  I have to say, I’ve been to Canada twice this year and I’m smitten.  Casey’s been here four times this year!  He took me to a nice little resto-bar (gastropub?) over in Gastown called Six Acres where we [...]

UFC Fan Expo Sights and Sounds
UFC Fan Expo Sights and Sounds

Last week we worked to cover UFC 114 for MMAFighting.com and at the same time as the anticipated Jackson vs Evans bout, there happened to also be the second ever UFC Fan Expo, twice the size of last year’s. I could tell you what is was like but this video will do a better job [...]

UFC 114 Fight Night
UFC 114 Fight Night

Finally out of Las Vegas.  Going over my gallery from 114 to pick out a couple shots for you to lure you over to MMAfighting.com to see the whole thing. I am trying to write out how my night went while visiting my family but my younger brother is watching local news behind me and [...]

UFC 114 Weigh-ins
UFC 114 Weigh-ins

Just a reminder to check out my weigh-in gallery over at MMAfighting.com.  This was the largest crowd for a weigh-in I have ever seen.  It was “banana sandwich” as my friends might say. That after a full day at the Fan Expo and well, it was pretty exhausting and pretty exciting. What surprised me were [...]

UFC 114 Workouts
UFC 114 Workouts

Out here in Vegas covering UFC 114 for MMAFighting/AOL Fanhouse and having a blast.  Tons of fans in town.  Longest media workout EVER.  But that means I had infinite opportunities to take the photos I wanted to take and so, I did. The crowd flowed in and out most of the six hours but there [...]

UFC 113 Fight Night in Montreal
UFC 113 Fight Night in Montreal

Montreal, you were beautiful.  Nothing like watching the snow fly around my 29th floor window, even though I was about to find out my flights would be canceled and my next few days a traveler’s hell.  The city was lovely, it’s churches gorgeously creepy, crepes and handmade Taiwanese noodles fantastic, and now while I sit [...]

Montréal Fight Week Update
Montréal Fight Week Update

I’m up in Canada for my first time EVER, which is crazy because I’ve been all over Asia & Europe and never visited my neighbor to the North. We’re in the lovely city of Montréal, Québec covering UFC 113.

Urine For A Big Surprise!
Urine For A Big Surprise!

We’re in Montréal for UFC 113 and today I watched Mr. Yoshizo Machida, Lyoto’s father, drink a cup of his own urine. Yeah.  It’s as awesome as it sounds. I don’t know that I need to explain this video.  Just that Mr. Machida really did just go into the corner and pee behind the UFC’s [...]

Refresher: Dan Hardy
Refresher: Dan Hardy

Now that UFC 111 is upon us — let’s revisit the training camp vid we did on Dan Hardy way back when he was training for Marcus Davis! Casey is in New York covering all the pre-fight madness for AOL Fanhouse and I’m in Fresno (or better yet, FresYES!) for Strikeforce Challengers: Johnson vs Mahe. [...]

UFC Gym Grand Opening in Concord
UFC Gym Grand Opening in Concord

This past week was FILLED to the brim with activities, ending with the grand opening of the UFC gym in Concord. It was super packed. I don’t know how many people showed up but the gym’s VP Adam Sedlack estimated it at 10,000 people which I might believe considering how difficult it was for me [...]

FO MAG: TUF Finale Weigh-in
FO MAG: TUF Finale Weigh-in

Today’s TUF Finale Weigh-ins were um, weigh-ins.  Guys taking their clothes off then facing each other. Most fighters didn’t even pose on the scale, hopping off as soon as their weights were read. Even Kimbo, long-time acquaintance back from our EliteXC days, only looked down in surprise to see he came in three pounds under [...]

FO MAG: TUF 10 Finale Open Workout
FO MAG: TUF 10 Finale Open Workout

I’m in Vegas covering the The Ultimate Fighter Finale for Fighters Only Magazine and I spent a few hours in a toasty meeting room lined with workout mats and media at The Palms. The light was crazy with incandescent spots, flourescent tubes, and splotch of blue daylight reflecting into the room.  It made for some [...]
