This past Monday, I accompanied newly signed UFC analyst Amanda Salvato to Ricardo Almeida's Gym in New Jersey. We were there to interview Edson Barboza for his upcoming fight with Donald Cerrone. This is one of the first projects that Fighterplus is doing with UFC Brasil, and hopefully many to come.
The MMA scene is still very young compared to other mainstream sports, but it is still amazing to be able to share the room with some of the top athletes in the world. The room was full of champions including Frankie Edgar, Akira Corassani and Marlon Moraes, who just claimed the WSOF bantamweight title this past weekend.
After an intense training, we sat dow with Edson and Ricardo Almeida for the UFC Brasil Interview. I'm looking forward to seeing how they use the footage I shot, and if they saw what I was going for. I plan on putting together a short highlight from the footage as well, so look for that.
Thanks Amanda and UFC Brasil for the opportunity, and heres to many more projects!
