I love The Thrill and the Agony videos from the UFC.
UFC 223 is in the books, and it was a weekend not to be forgotten. The Thrill and the Agony help keep the action fresh in your mind. Conor did his thing, Rose Namajunas proved her championship was in no way a fluke, and Khabib Nurmagomedov finally earned championship gold. It was an incredible night, and this video takes you inside the cage as well as backstage bringing you closer to the action.
The amount of hard work and sacrifice these fighters endure is almost unthinkable. They spend a lot of time away from loved ones, they forgo eating foods they like, and they damn near kill themselves to make weight. So when you see the elation and the utter dejection in winning and losing, it starts to make sense. These videos capture that extremely well.
In the latest sneak peek, we see Rose and Joanna’s reactions to the decision of who won. We see also see Khabib winning the Lightweight championship and how close he is to his AKA teammates. There’s a really nice moment with him and Daniel Cormier.
