About

MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world.

That’s what we keep hearing, in the news, on the internet, on the sides of buses. At the Daily Scrap (http://www.mmadailyscrap.com), we don’t think of MMA as just a sport - we think of it as a lifestyle. It’s about not submitting. Not to your opponent, your boss, or your girlfriend.

Mixed martial arts is popular for some obvious reasons: it’s exciting, it’s raw, it’s the first sport for the children of YouTube - you can watch an entire UFC fight while your supervisor is taking a piss. Our mission, however, is to examine the sport through a sociological lens. Facebook and Twitter are cool, yes, but they are not substitutes for real experience.

You can’t abbreviate a fight with 160 characters. You can’t call upon your avatar to save you when a two-hundred pound man is straddling your body, punching you in the face. At the Daily Scrap, we believe that MMA is a form of social protest - the punk rock for Generation Kill. “I have a body,” these fighters are shouting….and America is listening.

Who’s Behind This?

The Daily Scrap is the brainchild of a group of accomplished internet-exec-geeks by day and fight junkies at night. Got to let off steam somehow!

Editor-in-Chief: Brett Neichin
Having sketched out the idea for the site, the group turned to Brett Neichin to be our fearless Editor-In-Chief and Head Writer and to build a bridge between hardcore fight fans and casual observers. Brett is a New York based writer and martial artist (the relatively rare combo we were looking for!). Brett lives in New York City where he trains in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, churns out articles as a freelance journalist, and is currently at work on a novel.

    I noticed you have been climbing the B/R MMA writer rankings. If there is anything you ever need let me know. Keep up the good work.
