Fox Sports 1
The Ultimate Fighter 27

As Fox Sports 1’s flagship series, “The Ultimate Fighter” has had a long, illustrious run as the champion of sports competition television, pitting MMA hopefuls against each other for a contract with the UFC. When our friends at FS1 turned to us to produce the launch materials for the 27th season, we strapped on our gloves immediately.

Visually dynamic so they’ll grab your eye at a loud sports bar, yet with hypnotic sound design that will rock your living room, the final spots were met with rave reviews from FS1, and the brass at the UFC were thrilled with our work. When the next season rolls around, we’ll certainly be game to step into that octagon again!

In post, we strived to tell an immersive visual story, building our narrative with dramatic fighter reveals and frenetic edits to capture the spirit of the sport.

We enhanced the edit with bold, in-your-face typography and detailed compositing.
