Relive UFC 225 in a particularly brutal edition of Fight Motion, featuring Rafael dos Anjos, Colby Covington, Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero.
UFC 225 is fading further into memory but today, the UFC uploaded the latest in their Fight Motion series to their official YouTube channel and after the brutal events of last weekend’s fight-card, it’s an especially fun entry.
Of course, the vast majority of the praises went to the electric contest between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero atop the card and it was with good reason. Both men somehow managed to leave the octagon upright – giving a display of near inhuman ability to take a shot. There were elbows, head-kicks, hard hooks and everything in between but both chins held up.
With fights between Colby Covington and Rafael dos Anjos, Alistair Overeem and Curtis Blaydes and even the farcical affair between CM Punk and Mike Jackson to be found below, the slow-motion does not hurt the violence on offer this time around.
Well, except in the case of Punk/Jackson. That fight is still awful.
