Fighter Stories – How They Started (Intro)

It seems to me like the other MMA-related sites and publications are all asking the same questions when they get interviews with the fighters. More often than not, the questions are limited to a fighters game planning, training routine and expectations in their upcoming fight. From the time a fighter books a fight until the time he steps into the ring/cage, he must field the exact same questions about 20-30 times. While the future is important, we at are going to take a different approach.

How’s this for a concept?

Rather than ask the usual, repetitive questions regarding a future fight, we’re going to switch things up a bit. As a matter of fact, we’re not going to focus on the future at all, but rather – we at are going to focus on the past. We’re going to focus on how the fighters got where they are today. Everyone has a story and when dealing with professional fighters, those stories seem like they’d be a lot more interesting than those of an accountant or dentist.

From what prompted them to partake in their first martial art class to how they felt prior to their first fight; from fighting on the streets to sleeping in cars while trying to make ends meet – we’ll be covering it all. Not only we will be covering the fighters who are currently at the top of the ranks, but we will also be profiling fighters who are currently struggling to make it – giving them some needed exposure and just telling their stories.

So, keep checking back. This should be interesting. And in the meantime, feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think of the concept..



  1. Excellent site btw. and the concept is nice. Too often we dont know about the early part of the fighters struggles and the training they took to reach to the top.
    would serve as an inspiration.
    Will visit often.
