Carla Esparza gets her first highlight reel

Several MMA fans have used their talents to create multimedia pieces for their favorite fighters. In one case, a fighter has decided to give back to her fans.

This last week, Carla “The Cookie Monster” Esparza held a contest for her fans. Whoever created the “best” highlight video would received an autograph picture and a Oatmega bar protein cookie.

After one week, there is one entry on the list from Dreist Studios who released a highlight reel of the former Invicta FC Strawweight champion – who is set to step foot in the octagon on “The Ultimate Fighter 20“ later this year.

Deist Studios has created several videos for fighters, including Jon Jones, Demetrious Johnson and Chris Weidman. They also have several original pieces on their Youtube channel.

The video is a little over 2 and a half minutes long and features clips of Esparza training and preparing for her fight. It also showcases moments of the Cookie Monster’s classic bouts with Bec Rawlings – known back then as Hyatt – Sarah Schneider and Felice Herrig. The icing on the cake is the score in the video, which gives the piece a feeling of a classic battle – similar to what you would see in “Lord of the Rings” or “Game of Thrones.”

The contest ends today, though I’m sure more reels of the Cookie Monster will appear on the Internet. Still, Dreist Studios got to the finish line first.
