UFC's Jon Jones slo-mo video

A well-edited and UFC-produced 90-second clip of Jon Jones defeating Lyoto Machida.

The traditionally trained journalist in me looks at this "Jon Jones: Believe Your Eyes" video and sees a huge promotional/commercial video that I shouldn't really bother writing any words about.

But the video editor and former video host in me looks at this same video and sees a skillfully produced video with strong use of a soundtrack and slo-mo effects.

The multimedia consumer in me sees the scene of the collapse of Lyoto Machida, combined with its sound editing, as fascinating to watch.
