“Sports photographers have been left out of the history books,” people say. “They’re not part of the canon. And that’s ridiculous – because sports photography at its very heart is about the body in movement, which is one of the central themes of art, it’s one of the central themes of who we are as human beings.”

During 20 years of UFC we welcomed quite a few photographers who all had their own distinguished way of making pictures in a way of perspective, action, emotion and specific setting. Strangely enough, out of the thousands of pictures each edition only a handful of pictures stands out, being a one of a kind shot for the history books, which show’s it’s not as easy as it looks to take a great picture.

At this point we have over 50.000 pictures in our database and during this Corona pause, where everybody is in quarantine, we took the time to select a series of most iconic pictures we’ve seen in the past 20 years. These pictures are selected based on the most traffic, thumbs up, likes, reactions and wow factor from our viewers.

Because we love what we do, there’s more to come.
