    Just read your top MMA fighters under 25, Nathan. Was rather surprised that Angela Lee was omitted. At 6-0, a title championship, and just turned 20,was this an oversight or do you truly not think that she belongs. If the latter, why?

    Hey Nathan, my name is Matthew Perez and I am a journalism student at the University of Alabama. My final story of the year is about UFC coming to New York and the effect it will have on the city. One of the requirements is that I have 5 sources and was wondering:Do you see New York hosting upcoming events as a positive? What might some of the benefits be?

    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.
