About

Proud daddy and husband. I love baseball, the Yanks in particular. I cherish a good little league game.

I have sat cage side for countless MMA fights, and also worked as a cage side commentator for various events. Announcing is a lot of fun but it is interacting with the fighters and organizations that is my passion.

I have interviewed dozens of fighters you have never heard of but have made it my lifes work to make sure you know their names for tomorrow. And I have also interviewed multiple world champions and fighters from various organizations including UFC, Strikeforce, WEC, and Bellator athletes.

I enjoy writing anything I can about MMA. Roots, regional stuff in particular. I work very hard to spread the word of local events, fighters, organizations, anything MMA.

I believe heavily in positivity within the sport of MMA and work hard to ensure that I promote the sport in the most positive fashion I can. There are more than enough vultures out there to trash it, I will stay the course of positive reinforcement.

    Yo TJ - stats are updated... also, everyone seems to be forgetting about the one add / drop at the end of each month, so if you can get me your move by tomorrow (Feb 2nd Midnight), I'll allow it. Here's the updated article :

    I absolutely loved the GSP-shouldn't-fight-Silva article! I've been thinking and saying many of the same things and everybody just shouts down any logical approach to the idea. I don't usually assign much credence to Sonnen's rants but the one about 'P4P king' being crap is true. Your's is the best take I've seen on the subject (probably meaning that it's the one closest to my own opinion but, Hey, it's a genuine and heart-felt compliment.

    Hey TJ - did you catch the reply on my article before it got dinged ?

    Apparently these Jack-wagon censors take issue to anyone putting down the Yankees.

    The absolute worst part about it was me stating "TJ - I'm having a tough time being cordial with you now that the Sox are 78 friggin' games behind your Yanks"

    # 1 - A joke
    # 2 - when did friggin' get outlawed ???
    # 3 - it was all in good fun

    Don't want you to think I'm being rude - I just can't squeeze anything by these chimpanzee censors who sit in their cage and fling feces at each other all day after torching my comments.
