Fights with headgear where they have shorter and fewer rounds (not to mention the lighting) make it difficult to get a whole lot of action shots, but I managed capture a few:

Holy cow, I can't believe they let kids beat the hell out of each other. Nice shots though.

Thanks guys.

Yeah, they let kids do it, too. I'd rather have my kids learn MMA- there are other options than just punching and being punched. :)

Good shots.

Also commenting on what you said, that's a bad statement. MMA fighters bring in pure boxers to help train them on striking; a pure boxer would destroy a MMA fighter in strikes alone; losing ofcourse when it came to brazilian juijitsu (and possibly Muy Thai, but that focus is close range, a boxer would have a reach advantage). Boxing in itself an art of kinetic energy and motion; a good punch is an orchestra or moving your entire body in sync to transfer moving energy from the bottom of your foot, through to the end of your fist.

O_O ..... I like my fightin sports =p (and yes MMA is awesome sauce)

"MMA fighters bring in pure boxers to help train them on striking"

Sure they do. They also bring in BJJ blackbelts and Muay Thai fighters. My point wasn't whether a boxer could beat an MMA practitioner- sure they could- in a boxing match with boxing rules. My point was that MMA is safer than boxing because MMA is more than standing and banging.

except maybe moves like knee-bars that can destroy a limb before there is time to tap. But I otherwise agree.

Yeah, heelhooks, kneebars, keylocks, kimuras and armbars can definitely do damage, but the irony of MMA is that it's brutality is what keeps it safer than boxing, mortality wise.

Good luck. Stick with your 50 and leave the flash at home.

Nice shots as usually. #5 doesn't look like a fighter at all O_O. I do MMA and totally agree about what you say.

Nice shots. In #8 the fighter on the rights looks like he really not looking foward to that left.

Thanks guys.

I see some of you here are relatively new. You may appreciate what I can do with longer rounds and no headgear:
