The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences recently announced this year's winners of the Sports Emmy Awards, including a nice honor for the world's biggest mixed martial arts promotion's production team. The UFC crew took home the award for Outstanding Edited Sports Coverage for its Fight Flashback piece on McGregor vs. Diaz 2, which aired on Fox Sports 1.
Among the list of producers who received credit for the award is none other than UFC president Dana White. So yes, the big boss himself is now an Emmy winner.
In addition to the UFC's production team, NFL Films and the NFL Network also received the award for their Super Bowl 50 Sound FX piece. It's pretty cool to see the MMA promotion earning awards alongside top dogs like the NFL.
You can check out the full Fight Flashback piece on the UFC's Fight Pass video streaming service.
