Watch: Stunning Slow-Mo Video Perfectly Captures Pivotal Moments Of McGregor-Diaz 2

By now you will have likely seen the various videos that accompany live fight broadcasts nowadays.

From Owen Roddy’s vlog that tracks Team McGregor throughout the day itself to ‘Fight Pass’ videos where you can hear coaches from either side bellowing out instructions to their man as the contest unfolds, these additional snippets are a wonderful insight into the science and preparation that goes into helping elite martial artists compete in such events.

But the ‘Fight Motion’ videos that the UFC release a couple of days after each pay-per-view event may be the one most worth viewing, as while watching live the vast majority of us, who do not practice martial arts, may not fully appreciate the skill on show in the bluster of two competitors fighting at top speed in front of a raucous crowd.

The video below demonstrates highlights of punches, leg kicks, knees and takedowns from several fights on the night in question.

If you want to see only clips from McGregor-Diaz 2, skip to the 1:43 mark, although you will miss Donald Cerrone’s Matrix-like combination if you choose to do so.
