You need a little UFC 222 Fight Motion in your life. Here it is.

need-little-fight-motion-life

Fight Motion is great. It allows you bone-crunching heathens a look into the body reacting to getting punched and kicked in very high definition, at super slow-motion. The UFC posted their UFC 222 FM and it is all you remember from the greatest hits and then some.

However, I must say that it is disappointing that they didn’t show the Brian Ortega uppercut on Frankie Edgar. They did show the elbow that Ortega lands, which signified the beginning of the end. Also, we get to see Yana Kunitskaya and Cris Cyborg. Cyborg looks even more terrifying in slow-motion. We all know how hard Cyborg hits, but I really think the FM videos show how accurate she is, as well.

Also featured are Sean O’Malley vs Andre Soukhamthath, Mackenzie Dern vs Ashley Yoder, Cody Stamann vs Bryan Caraway, John Dodson vs Pedro Munhoz, and Ketlen Vieira vs Cat Zingano.
