My name is Michael Andrew Evans. I am a writer, historian, educator and MMA fanatic. I completed a M.S. in higher education with a specialization in history from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in December of 2010. I have been a follower of mixed martial arts since 2005 and have been writing about the sport for nearly three years. I reside in southern Illinois in the township of Carmi. I am finishing my education currently with the goal of becoming a history teacher. I have several passions in my life but mixed martial arts remains an obsession of mine. It will truly be a treat to see where FOX, the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator, Spike TV, HDNet and all of the regional MMA organizations can and will take the sport in 2012 and beyond.

April 1, 2012 was my one year anniversary at Bleacher Report and I accomplished my goal of 100 articles in a year. It makes me feel pretty good considering I only really wrote for seven months due to other obligations. It's gonna be a great year for MMA. Let's get it on.
hey everyone! Check out my new content on mmafightcorner.com

Happy Easter to everyone out there. I wish you all a relaxing and peaceful day.
Overeem has officially screwed up our all heavyweight main card at UFC 146
Thanks for writing. Send me a link to your next article and I'll be sure to look it over. Glad you made it over here....
Tomorrow night is the first UFC fight in Japan in over a decade. I'm thinking this one is gonna bring it!
I feel badly about the article I wrote on December 29, 2011. I made childish, impulsive and harsh comments about Nick and Nate Diaz. I called the Cesar Gracie training center and left a message this morning and I left a long apology to both men. I do not know what possessed me to be so rude but I am being a man and admitting my faults. I left my phone number so hopefully someone will return my call so I can properly apologize. I just wanted to let my readers know that I was wrong and I will promise to think before I write from now on.
I was lost in an abyss for five months but as of two weeks ago I am back with you. I am starting slowly with an article or two per week but I will be increasing my work rate as my groove returns.
I read your article about Hector Lombard. Interesting reading, keep up the good work.
No problem man, when something that big happens there's always like 4 people who jump on it haha.
