MMA Life: Mac Danzig on Hip-Hop and Photography

There is more to a fighter than a life in the cage. MMA Life is an video series that takes a deeper look into the lives of the fighters we love to watch compete.

For Mac Danzig, the winner of the sixth season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” there is quite a bit more to his life than what we saw on the reality series or what we see when he sets foot in the Octagon.

The UFC lightweight standout has many passions, like many fighters family is at the heart of Mac’s life outside the cage, and like many fighters, music is a tremendous passion. He’s been a devotee of hardcore hip-hop, not the junk food rap that is blasted on the airwaves.

But what may surprise many people is that Mac is an accomplished photographer. His landscape and nature photography is second to none, rivaling any world-class photographer.

Mac granted’s Erik Fontanez exclusive behind-the-scenes access to take a deeper look into his life, including hip-hop and a recent gallery display of his photographic artwork.
