Watch Fabricio Werdum’s spectacular flying start at UFC 203 in stunning slo-mo
THE action in the UFC is fast and furious, with fights often finishing in the blink of an eye.
Such is the pace of the action inside the Octagon, it’s easy to miss some of the brutal artistry on display when the world’s top mixed martial artists do battle.
The UFC‘s Fight Motion cameras were in place at Cleveland, Ohio this past weekend for UFC 203, where they captured the best of the action in super-slo-mo as Stipe Miocic defended his UFC heavyweight title against Dutch star Alistair Overeem.
The co-main event saw a less-than-inspiring contest between former champion Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne, but the Fight Motion cameras perfectly captured the highlight moment of the fight, as Werdum launched a spectacular flying kick to the face of Browne with the very first strike of the contest.
The cameras also showed just how easily Mickey Gall was able to duck under CM Punk‘s early bullrush and take the former WWE star to the mat before eventually finishing him by submission.
Check out the super-smooth, super-slo-mo action in the UFC’s recap video here.
