I’m lucky enough to be shooting UCMMA 31 again this weekend. Part of the deal is that I go to the press conference prior to the main event. Its a really fun part of the build up and good to see all of the guys facing off to each other. Its also a bit different photographically as I have to use the flash on camera which isn’t something I regularly do.

There’s lots of good humored banter and a great deal of respect between the fighters, each confident in their own ability, the work that they have put in hopefully coming to fruition tomorrow evening at UCMMA 31 Troxy in London’s East End.

These guys are not mindless thugs, they are hard working athletes, training hard and cutting weight before the fight as hopefully can be evidenced by these pictures.
