About Us – Meet the Team

This site has been created from a love … well, strong like … well, a closed fist, double pat only, man hug kinda feeling about an intelligent sport that has an upbeat tempo, an energizing spirit, and dedicated fans like no other. We have a good team managing this site, so stay tuned and come back often. Like a Motel 6, we’ll leave the light on for you.

Moose is the resident gamblin’ expert on our staff. As his shop-a-holic wife will attest, he’s made a small fortune over the years picking winners in pigskin and basketball, but has really found his niche in MMA. Although his analysis of fights often seems unconventional, the end result is all that matters, and, because of this, he drives a Lexus while you drive an ’88 Oldsmobile. Like any degenerate gambler, he has his ups and downs, but in the end it always works out. At least that’s what he tells us.

I’m a freelance MMA article writer. I’ve been writing about MMA for over five years. I’ve written for many different publications, including Bleacher Report, ESPN, and Sherdog. I’m also a regular contributor to MMA Junkie. In addition to writing articles, I also do some color commentary for local MMA events. I got my start in the sport when I was in college and started training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. After college, I decided to pursue writing full-time. I’m a big fan of all things MMA, and I’m always looking for new stories to tell. If you have any tips or suggestions, feel free to send me an email. Thanks for reading!
