I had to stay in one place and I couldn't stand up where I was. They got me my press pass at kind of the last minute so it was the only spot they could find that wasn't already taken. Which kind of sucked, since I wasn't able to photograph Matt's walk-in or get a clean shot of the banner; but it was definitely better than trying to get good photos from the stands.
I just wanna know one thing:

Did his corner keep telling him to breathe & remember what they worked on?

Well, whatever "pocket" they had you in Nate, it didn't seem to affect your photography. Great shots! Really great shots!

I heard some stuff after the first round, they were convinced that Serra won it. The rest of the time I tuned them out.

I guess you could say that I was in "farting range" of Matt Serra. If he had farted, I would have smelled it. Of course, that could have worked both ways.

No wonder he looked so woozy after the 2nd round! And here I had thought it was from the pounding Matt had gave him.

Good job Nate. You can get a good feel for the punishment Serra took in those shots of them on the ground.

I wouldn't have wanted to touch him.

Wouldn't have minded getting a pic with Pete Sell, though, he seems cool.

Thanks! There were a few photos I wish I could have gotten, but I think things turned out fine the way they did.

The tough part is taking pictures through the chain link. You can't use auto focus, because it keeps trying to focus on the fence, so you're forced to focus manually which makes you miss lots of shots when things are moving quickly.

Great pictures Nate!

Matt looks huge and especially scary in the staredown!

Great job Matt, showed what a champion you are
