UFC on FOX: Calgary, epic Fight Motion video of the event

fox-calgary-epic-fight-motion-video

The UFC never disappoint when they release their Fight Motion videos after a fight card. This past weekend we were treated to the UFC on FOX from Calgary and that card delivered big time. Luckily for the fans, the whole event was captured with the UFC’s Fight Motion technology.

We are able to watch every bone cracking punch and skin flailing from the skeleton with each strike. The video highlights most of the important fights, but of course, the biggest highlight comes in the shape of Jose Aldo’s body shot on Jeremy Stephens.

The look of pain on Stephens’ face is really captured with Fight Motion. Fans genuinely get a sense of how much that punch to the liver by Jose Aldo, sucked.

Thankfully, they left out Eddie Alvarez’ 12-6 elbow that everyone is whining about. Lord knows we don’t need to beat that subject to death anymore.

UFC on FOX 29 Fight Motion video preview, non-stop slo-mo action

Fight Motion

Take a slow-motion trip down memory lane from UFC on FOX 29

The UFC does a lot of things really well. One of them is their production of both in-ring and backstage video content. The Fight Motion videos take you inside the Octagon and show the action in slow-motion, which is incredible. One of my favorite aspects of ever card is waiting for the Fight Motion video to be released.

There’s just something amazing about seeing the shots land in slow-motion. You see so many more shots landing in this fashion. I could watch an entire fight in Fight Motion and be in heaven. When you see the fight live or on television you miss so much of what is actually happening. It’s just incredible.

This episode doesn’t fail to impress. The footage from Gaethje/Poirier is worth the watch all by itself. There’s plenty more to see though. The UFC on FOX 29 Fight Motion video is available below.
