The UFC’s “Thrill and Agony” videos take us up close and behind the scenes of pay-per-view events, and at UFC 208 on Feb. 11, it was all about the fighters’ reactions after close decisions in both the headliner and co-headliner.
UFC 208 took place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and in the pay-per-view main event, de Randamie (8-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) edged ex-bantamweight champ Holly Holm (10-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) via close unanimous decision – arguably with the help of some late post-round punches.
As you can see in the above video, it was a crushing loss for Holm and her team. And despite her win, de Randamie was quickly reminded about “Cyborg” as she left the arena.
Speaking of narrow decisions, we also have co-headliner Derek Brunson (16-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC), who suffered a unanimous-decision defeat to former longtime middleweight champ Anderson Silva (34-8 MMA, 17-4 UFC). “The Spider” got the nod from the judges, though the overwhelming majority of media outlets scored the fight for Brunson, according to MMADecisions.com.
The video above is a preview of “Thrill and Agony.” UFC Fight Pass subscribers can now watch the entire episode, which eventually will make its way to YouTube.
