I'm extremely passionate about mixed martial arts and try to read and watch as much as I can every single day. I also host a weekly MMA show called "The Verbal Submission" at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday nights and 10 p.m. on Wednesday nights.

I write event previews, liveblogs and fight recaps and fighter interviews for MMAMania.

UFC Fight Night 27 was an incredible night which featured a wide array of violent finishes, slick submissions and spectacular brawls, but no one was more violent than "The Natural Born Killer" Carlos Condit once he smelled blood against Martin Kampmann in the third and fourth rounds. Condit poured it on, battering and lacerating "The Hitman's" face, resulting in this spectacular Frankenstein-esque image from the post-fight press conference (via Will Fox of Fightland).

Whoops! ESPN promotes wrong fight league

Tito Ortiz and Quinton Jackson were in studio today at ESPN to help promote their upcoming Bellator pay-per-view main event, but let's just say things didn't quite go off without a hitch.
