I really love the pictures Chris Mason has taken at the last couple of shows. He's captured some great little moments, after the action shots, or before in the corner, when the other sports photographers have stopped looking. I think in years to come when I look back at my career as a fighter and as coach, I'll be glad to have these shots most of all. The excitement of the fighting itself overshadows some of the other things that are going on; and it's great to have those little moments of celebration, quiet contemplation, pride and love and caring documented, because they so often slip by unnoticed in the fracas surrounding the violence.

All photos by Ian Malone
Nice shorts from Made4fighters.com
I've just got a hold of some of Ian Malone's photos of mine and Matty's fights, unfortunately he didn't catch Yves's awesome display of Le Ninjitsu.
