Incredible interview with the man himself, the greatest photographer in MMA history, Susumu Nagao. Susumu discusses how he got involved with MMA, and also discusses the UFC, PRIDE, his relationship with Carlson Gracie, and more.

Susumu was one of the most important people in MMA during the early days.

Nearly 100% of all the "classic" pictures that you see were taken by him. He's such a huge fan of the sport, it shows in his photos.

 I got to meet him once. Felt like a dork that I was so excited about, but I was. His work is freakin amazing.

Lucky! Susumu is such a great guy. I haven't had the chance to meet him, but I emailed him a while back about his old picture books from the 1990s and asked if he had any left to sell. He said no, but there were some used ones available on Amazon Japan (which isn't available to me in the USA). Since I couldn't order, he went out of his way to buy the books from Amazon Japan and ship them to me in the USA, without me even asking, and only asked for the cost of the books and shipping themselves. I was floored. We need more people like Susumu in this world. Phone Post

I used to always go to his site, "Susumu's Gallery", when I got my first PC some years ago. This was before I had a high speed connection and before there was so much video available online. I would just scroll through all the different events and stare at the pics for an hour or more. This guy has taken more legendary MMA pics than I can even remember.
