Sometimes I go to the gym and wrap my hands and strap on some gloves and trane UFC. Usually about 30 minutes into padwork I start feeling like death is washing over me and one or all of my limbs start screaming threats to wave the white flag of defeat and surrender. Right about that time, my psychotic flyweight instructor will come over and make me feel like a total cryass and I either run away to vomit in the bathroom or a little voice inside my head that sounds like El Guapo from the Three Amigos starts repeating: ‘No we will not die like dogs, we will fight like lions!‘
This dramatic look inside the Vitor Belfort Blackzillian training camp for UFC 152 created by Ryan Loco makes that little El Guapo voice inside my head yell that lion quote too. Loco’s title for this work: “We Are Lions”- is more than appropriate since it really does give the feeling that we’re looking at a pride of male lions circling and preparing to go out and hunt and destroy the prey. Enjoy!
