Luckily I missed the riots by a couple days and any excuse to go to Vancouver is a good one. I was shooting this one for UFC/Getty/Zuffa so I had the primo shooting positions, with some great fights including heavyweights Junior dos Santos dismantling Shane Carwin til his face was a bloody mess. Special thanks to UFC Photo Manager/Photographer Josh Hedges and Mike Roach for help with cherry picker operation, setting up remote camera in truss and being helpful all the away around. Here are some of my favorite photos, hope you enjoy!
