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.
