I shot these prior to the official weigh-in’s for UFC 130 while Kendall was cutting weight in the prep area of the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The first photo was used for POP for Sinister Brand at K-mart. The second photo with Emily Miller, currently a WSOF Ring Girl, was shot specifically for a TapouT AAFES ad. Kendall made weight but unfortunately lost the fight the following night. I wish I had time to shoot him under different circumstances but that’s just how it worked out for us.
