We witnessed some wars Saturday night on the UFC’s premiere on Fox Sports 1 as fight after fight turned into a slobber-knocker. Good thing Fox’s now popular “phantom cams” were in full use. We now get to see all the face smashing in slow-motion. Just check out Joe Lauzon’s ears as they flutter on impact. Classic.
The cams have been a new and novel tool for showing the damage in replays, which we’ve seen the UFC implement since the start of their relations with FOX. The way the tech works is it breaks the 1 million frames per second barrier, delivering crystal clear slow-motion replays, so you don’t miss one nuance in an exchange.
