2017 in Pictures: our favourite shots of the year

Every shot tells a story.

Some of these images highlight the highs and lows of MMA, the raw emotion and the passion that comes with putting everything on the line inside the octagon. Others capture the very moment a knockout strike connects, or the split seconds before a takedown is executed.

These are our ten favourite photos from 2o17, shot by Cage Warriors’ official octagon photographer Dolly Clew.
