About

The ultimate MMA enthusiast, mixed martial arts has been a passion of mine since I saw Chuck Liddell beat down Tito Ortiz in their first encounter. Since then, I have been hooked on the sport. I am a proud owner of a black belt in trash talk. Ranked 2nd in the world only to Mr. Chael P. Sonnen, best trash talker of all time.

That is not to say that I do not love other sports, as I am also a die hard Chicago Blackhawks fan. I have been that way since I was a kid, long before the Stanley Cup bandwagon hoppers that plague the United Center on a game to game basis.

I am also a huge Chicago White Sox and Bulls fan. As far as football is concerned, I root for the Chicago Bears and Tennessee Titans. Trolling Green Bay Packers fan may be the easiest/most amusing thing to do on Sundays, especially because I go to school five minutes from Lambeau Field.

I feel that is all the information that is worth sharing, as this is a sports website. Hope you enjoy my articles!

    keep reading that Rousey article man. is that really your honest opinion on the topic or did bleacher need someone to do a piece taking Ronda's side for positive PR?

    don't listen to that garbage from "Johnny Bananas" he's the ultimate troll.

    Your articles are atrocious. When is B/R going to get real writers instead of anyone off the street. You have SAME format for every article you write. Plus, your analysis sounds like it is copied straight from Wikipedia, which in some cases it actually is. Learn how to be a real journalist. Actually don't, you would still be awful. Give up writing and do something so you can move out of your mom's basement.

    you should continue your fight promotions best of series every 10 events like you used to do. so say after this months UFC 160 you do a best of UFC 150-160. I enjoyed those lists on boring monday mornings, haha.

    You predicted King Mo would meet Babalu in the LHW tourney finals.

    I predicted this:
    Bold prediction : King Mo or Babalu will not get through the bracket on this tournament. Perhaps even both. Zyats is a sambo practicioner and will give Sobral all sorts of problems, and Newton is a wrestler who should have likely won last season's LHW tourney, and could probably defend Mo's takedowns. I'm not sold on the KO power of King Mo, and Newton might be able to pull off the upset.
    I've never bought the "Best in the UFC" argument...and I predict the winner of this tournament (and likely the next Bellator LHW champ) will be somebody from off the radar.

    And look at that, both Mo and Babalu are done and somebody from off the radar is going to get the next title shot. Wow, how do I get to write for you guys?
