About Eric Williams:

Celebrity and sports photographer Eric Williams has a passion for MMA Athletes. What drew him to MMA is that Eric feels they “are the most elite athletes in the world, who behind their craft, are simply the nicest people in the world. They are not the monsters some people think they are.” His photography shows this, showcasing the art and the dedication it takes to become a champion.

When asked how he gains access that few others seem to have to these elite athletes, Eric responds, “I ask for the access, pure and simple. I treat each athlete as if they were my family. I treat all athletes as I would want to be treated. These athletes trust me and my art.” When further asked how he gets his unparalleled access to these fighters he replies, “Many photographers come to the actual event/fight only or when there is a party. I go to their training camp. I make a commitment to the fighter. I am with that fighter during his training for the fight, again, not just the fight. Few if any do this.” Eric states proudly that his specialty is shooting in and during camp and right up to the fight….not the actual fight.

To date, Eric has done over 31 MMA Magazine Covers. His covers include Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, GSP, Anderson Silva, Wanderlei Silva, Rashad Lewis, and Uriah Favor. He also did the historic cover of the Three Kings – Lid-dell, Couture, and Wanderlei Silva. This sheer number of covers speaks volumes to how the industry looks to Eric Williams.

The piece includes a signed & numbered COA from a Notary Public who witnessed the signing, a Beyond the Cage COA as well as an LOA and lifetime authenticity guarantee from Pristine Auction. Also includes an official Muhammad Ali hologram and matching COA.
