Photo Project Update

After meeting with my partner Angela, I feel as though I am on the right track as far as my idea. She thinks it would be a very entertaining thing to shoot, and I tend to agree. From an outsiders point of view, the people who are involved in the CMU organization of LARP (Dagorhir) seem like really interesting individuals. 

Actually getting photos is going to be the challenging part to all of this. I have to get in contact with someone in the group. I’ve emailed the RSO president and also a member who seems really into it via Facebook. His facebook name is his LARP name and his profile picture is him in costume so I think that is a good sign. 

I hope to get started on this project in the very near future, I’d like to have a couple photos by next week.

After winning the belt in 2008 against Forrest Griffin, Evans lost it in his next fight against Lyoto Machida.

One of Evans best friends and training partners took the title shot himself. Jon Jones.

Jones has since then dominated the division while Evans has had to sit back and watch his former friend wear the belt. Evans left his training camp and has feuded publicly with Jones over the last year because of it.
