When you watch the reactions of the families and teams, it takes it to another level.
UFC 217 will forever be remembered as a night that changed MMA. The UFC crowned three new champions and we witnessed the return of perhaps the best ever, Georges St-Pierre. The seemingly unbeatable Joanna Jedrzejczyk got beat. TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt met in the Octagon and violently attempted to sort their misgivings for one another. It was nothing short of amazing. I really dig these videos and UFC 217 The Thrill and The Agony is top notch.
This video shows the reactions of the cornermen and the families in attendance. When Pat Barry almost cries for Rose, it makes you want to tear up. When TJ Dillashaw and Duane Ludwig answer months of verbal barbs and hatred with a knowing look, and embrace, you feel it. When Joanna simply says, “Sorry” to her corner and breaks down in tears, you really feel for her.
It’s this emotional connection that we have with the sport and its participants that make MMA special. These videos highlight that in perfect form.
