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.
