Holy bloodbath Batman, this fight is intense.

I had the pleasure of shooting this fight cage side, and never in my life have I seen a fight with more heart, more skill, more entertainment or more blood.

Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler faced Rory MacDonald for a fight that would later become the UFC's 2015 fight of the year, and it's easy to see why.

The pair went five rounds in their second meeting in the octagon before the fight was called in favor of the champion.

Just watch it and you'll see why this was fight of the year (and easily in the top 10 of all time).

Lawler is set to face Tyron Woodley for his next title defense at UFC 201 this weekend just in case you want to see more of this beast.
