Is it a coincidence that the UFC debuted the Phantom Cam around the same time that they announced the addition of the “pointless” flyweight division? Probably, but we’ll be damned if it isn’t the greatest technological achievement this side of the Blood-Bath Mat. The fact that the PhanCam actually allows us full-sized adults to watch a flyweight fight without having a seizure is just icing on the blood cake.
Slow motion makes everything better, plain and simple. Ask The Discovery Channel. Ask the end of this video. Ask Dave freakin’ Chapelle. And as such, the recently-released Phantom Cam footage from UFC on FOX 8: Johnson vs. Moraga somehow elevates the already FOTN-worthy brawl between Ed Herman and Trevor Smith (among others) to previously unimaginable levels of awesome. So enjoy, then invest in one of those blood towels to scare the shit out of your house guests. Seriously. Do it. I promise you that I won’t see a penny from it.
