MMA Madness - UFC in the UK

I'm gonna start of by saying that I haven't watched any MMA events what so ever in the past 6 months or more. This makes me really sad :( It's been the only other hobby of mine, aside from photography, for 7/8 years now but we cannot afford ESPN to watch the UFC (and I have a strong dislike to Bamma, absolutely chuffed that Tom Watson lost his debut the other night, as nasty as that is I always said he wasn't UFC standard!) so I've tried to shy away from the scene rather than frustrate myself that I'm missing out.

Now the time had rolled around that UFC were back in the UK for UFC on Fuel TV: Struve vs. Miocic (last weekend) of course we missed that too. Last year at the same time Jake and I had press passes to be octagon side and photograph/ provide live play by play for an American website at UFC 138: Leben vs. Munoz, which was so amazingly exciting! But you guessed it, the trip fell through. We moved into our flat a week or so before we needed to be in Birmingham which wasn't possible - of course we chose a home over the opportunity.

BUT instead of being down in the dumps about it all I want to post my photos from my time at the only UK UFC Fan Expo in London 2010 and the UFC 120 event I attended. My first and only ever event so far but hopefully there will be many more.
I've had views directed here from my photos on other sites so I'd like to make a post where they are all in one place.

Looking back, I could of done alot better when taking photos...but it was so fast paced and so much to look at. Next time I'll do better. I can't wait to share the experience and atmosphere of a live event with the love of my life.

  1. My husband & I love UFC too, we was actually at this Expo but for some crazy, stupid reason didn't get tickets for the event. Nice to see another blogger who loves UFC too :) x
