With less than 3 months remaining until the release of their seventh studio album Blood Money Part Zer0, New York City electro metal heads Dope are back with another music video – this one for the track “Best Of Me.” Front man Edsel Dope is an avid MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fanatic and made the sport the backdrop for the new video. The video stars Juliana “Killer” Miller – the recent winner of The Ultimate Fighter 30 – as one of the combatants in the video. The video was shot prior to Juliana’s win, which brought her an exclusive contract in the UFC. The video captures the spirit of the extreme sport as the band as the band performs their latest single around the action. The visually captivating video was directed by Edsel Dope / Co Directed by Matt Zane and can be seen here.
“I’m a huge MMA fan and this song presented a great opportunity for me to create a visual piece that showcases my passion for the sport. We had such a great time filming this video and I’m so proud of Juliana for kicking so much ass in the UFC,“ explains Edsel Dope.
