The Ronda vs. Cyborg debate

If there is one super fight that is spoken about more than any other right now I would have to say it is Ronda Rousey vs. Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino. Cyborg is arguably the only female fighter currently left to challenge the dominant female mma queen of the octagon. Here's the kicker - they don't even fight in the same weight class!

Time and time again I hear about a catch weight fight at 140 lbs.? Why? What benefit does Ronda get from this? Oh, well why doesn't Ronda move up to 145 lbs. then? Same scenario - what is the benefit? Ronda's bantam weight title wouldn't be on the line. She would be fighting out of her normal weight class and lets be honest the fact is if Ronda lost she has way more to lose than to gain. Don't get me wrong the fanboy in me wants to see this fight as much as the next mma fanatic but it just doesn't make sense. If Cyborg is serious about wanting to fight Ronda she should get in touch with a high level nutritionist, like Mike Dolce, and do a mock training camp with a weight cut to 135 lbs.

That's what makes sense in my mind. Why should Ronda bow down to Cyborgs terms? Until Ronda is over thrown from her reign in the UFC's bantam weight division she should be calling the shoots and not vice versa. With that being said - Cyborg CUT THAT WEIGHT!!

What MMA means to me

As I sit in my office and stare into my computer monitor searching for words to type I zone out and think about what MMA really means to me. I know there are so many people out there that are against it, not just mma but combat sports in general. I get it, I really do, but its not just about watching two human beings fighting against each other in a locked cage but all the other aspects that have made me grow to love the sport.

Combat sports have always been apart of my life in some way, shape or form but it is the past two years where it has become more of a lifestyle than just something to watch on a Saturday night with friends. Don't get me wrong that is still a huge regiment for my passion of mma but now there is more. In September of 2013 a good friend of mine told me what I needed to do - to start my own show. I can't thank him enough for giving me that push to do something I always wanted to do but was afraid to try....and that's when it started. I decided right then and there that I would pursue my dream and start my mma based Youtube show.

Nearly two years later I have met some of the best people in my life - fighters, fans, coaches, affialtes, etc; I am very fortunate that I have had the opportunity to meet and interact with all these great people. What once was just events that took place that I watched on TV are now events that I attend live as media while getting to travel and met new poeple all the time. So what does mma mean to me? It's a lifestyle and a lifestyle I love very much.
