PFL 1 - Daytona Beach, FL

This past Friday I was in Daytona Beach, FL for the inaugural Professional Fighters League event. This event was being held inside the Daytona Speedway on the infield, set to start once the Firecracker 250 race ended. 

However, Mother Nature had other plans. As someone who lived in Florida for a few years, I know how the weather can change at the drop of a hat. That evening was no different.

10 laps into the race, the rain began to fall. A fight that was supposed to begin at 10:30pm was now going off at 8:50pm. All of the crew rushed to make the event happen, and I must say, for the situation we were presented, we did an excellent job. Everyone worked together to get the show up and running early.

Cageside was a scene, as drivers and pit crew lined the cage, and fans surrounded the tent and entrance areas. The energy was fantastic. Hats off to the fighters who took to the cage early and put on a great performanace in spite of the weather circumstances. 

Here are some of my favorite images from the event. Hope you enjoy.

Selects from VFC 57 in Topeka, Kansas

What better place to spend Cinco de Mayo than in Topeka, Kansas. The land where tacos were invented. While there may not have been a good Mexican spot to celebrate the Battle of Puebla, at least we had some fisticuffs from the Expocenter in Topeka for Victory Fighting. Enjoy!

Selects from VFC 56 in Omaha, Nebraska

My good friend Ryan Stoddard invited me out to Omaha, Nebraska to shoot his Victory FC 56 card. I had never been to Omaha, so I was excited both to shoot the show as well as see a new section of Earth. I got to eat at a Guy Fieri approved diner, so I would say I came out on top. 

The show was great. Their square cage is an absolute delight and should be adopted by all MMA orgs (or not, keep Victory FC special). Below are some of my favorite images from fight night. Enjoy!

Want me to shoot your show? Let me know.

A few selects from CFFC 64 in San Diego

The fine folks at CFFC contacted me and asked if I would like to shoot their show in San Diego. I couldn't pass up a chance to see some old friends as well as get to enjoy my old stomping grounds. Great show which also had Dana White in attendance to offer a spot in the UFC while filming their "Looking For a Fight" show.
