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.
