    Hey Nathan, my name is JD and I'm an 18 year old aspiring sport journalist (preferably MMA), and I was just wondering how you got your start in MMA journalism and if you had any tips. My email is raderjd@gmail.com. Anything you could send my way would be awesome. Thanks.

    You're small article about Cejudo is pretty ignorant. To date we've had 2 US Gold medalists in the Olympics; Mark Schultz (1 fight UFC 9) and Cejudo. They are a combined 9-0 in MMA. Add Cormier, probably the best right behind those 2 who came from wrestling backgrounds, and it's a 25-1 record for those atheletes. Cejudo is the youngest gold medalist in US history at age 21. People who never wrestled in at least high school, or better yet college, simply are bored by wrestlers and see it as less skillful because they have no clue what they are watching and definitely no clue on how a wrestler of his level feels in a real fight. Cormier has dominated everybody he's fought except Jones and his best finish was 4th in the Olympics. Another great example is Russian Combat Sambo champs like Fedor, Khabib. They all smother people to the point they break. Khabib is what, 22-0?

    Mark my words dude who knows nothing of wrestling; Cejudo will take that belt and it will be sooner than later.

    FYI, A person (Hector Lombard) does not "embark" fear in a person. A person may "induce" fear but he cannot "embark" fear.
    Other than that I thought the article was pretty informative.
