Who needs a foley when your Street MMA combatants are mic’d properly and are swinging for the fences? Very few people, that’s who. So often the production crew behind a Street MMA bout is undergeared and undertrained, but not this guy. The camerman here seems to have a boom operator and maybe even a few wireless lapel mics on these fighters, because every single punch in this short-but-sweet Street MMA is heard loud and clear. You can even hear their cheeks shutter and lips smack the fists of their enemy. Wild stuff. The only downside, of course, is that in the heat of the moment, the cameraman forgot to turn off his mic, so along with the punches we hear his adrenaline-fueled panting.
It’s still worth it. There’s even some good sportsmanship at the end.
