Some of his most recent events include Conor McGregor’s triumphant return against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January. He also covered Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal headlining at UFC 244 at the Madison Square Garden in November.
Causi has covered the most emblematic moments in the world of boxing. For instance, Andy Ruiz’s Heavyweight Championship upset of Anthony Joshua. As well as, Deontay Wilder’s first-round knockout of Dominic Breazeale at the Barclays Center.
The New Yorker had a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Whomsoever Causi had the good fortune of befriending fling praises his way, without a second’s hesitation.
A charismatic photographer who brought the fans closer to the action with his breathtaking stills. In addition, he was a kind and thoughtful individual and had an interest in taking photos at Little League events, pro bono.
