I shot this at New York City's 19th street Gym. This is an MMA / UFC fighter from brooklyn born in Brazil. I understand that this is an advanced editing competition, but i am proud to say this image is virtually unchanged out of the camera. In the highres file you can see the sweat flying off of him
