Although it’s been over two weeks since the upset of the year, I wanted to analyze it a bit on the mental side, here’s the latest I wrote on Rousey vs. Holm.
I have to show my gratitude to my readers right now. I’d recently been stuck in a weird spot where my planned articles had to be shitcanned due to some fights getting cancelled, and just not being able to decide what issues to tackle.
This story took me a while to finish, but I’m extremely happy with how it turned out, I can easily say it’s one of my best. I always welcome any feedback, comments and criticisms from all the readers and I strongly encourage it for this one. I got a record number of views on the Johny Hendricks piece and although I have to give big thanks to Last Word On Sports, I really want to thank the readers, you guys give me the extra motivation to polish up my skills. This blog doesn’t get the traffic that the sites I write for get, but every view on this page means the world to me. Thank each and every one of you.
Now on to the fight stuff. Here’s my latest for Last Word on Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor, fighter pay, and the new business relationship between Fabricio Werdum and Ramzan Kadyrov.
This is a link to my latest piece on Johny Hendricks and his failed weight cut and what it could mean for MMA.
A link to my latest piece on why I’m giving up on drug testing in MMA.
This is my latest piece on some of the performances that stuck out to me from UFC 191.
This is my latest piece on the recent trend of a few young fighters retiring much earlier than anticipated.
This is my preview for the Max Holloway/Charles Oliveira fight.
First of all, I would like to send a big thank you to anyone who reads my work or clicks on the links to my outside work. The exclusive wordpress articles haven’t been as continuous as I would want but I have been quite preoccupied lately. Apologies, but I will have another music piece coming out in the next two weeks so check back, especially if you enjoyed my Nine Inch Nails piece, it’ll be much in the same vein. Now onto the matter at hand.
My good friends from girlfightsmma.com have recently started a Go Fund Me fundraiser in an effort to try and expand their coverage of women’s MMA. This website is in its’ embryonic stage right now and it’s already very strong in it’s coverage and opinion pieces. Both Stephen & Melanie (the heads of the site) are awesome people who truly love the sport and the female athletes that compete in it. They don’t like to do things half-assed and are very ambitious & determined to make Girl Fights MMA a premier destination for fans of WMMA.
If you have anything to spare, any amount of money that will not hurt you to donate, please do so. My colleagues would greatly appreciate it. This site operates on nothing but hard work, love & passion. Stephen & Mel considered me to contribute from the beginning, and I had only been writing 4 months up to that point, I was so honored by their consideration, and it has helped me immensely. So any small opportunity to help them in return will always be seen through by me. I appreciate you took the time to read this and any amount donated would be greatly appreciated by all.
This is a link to a little piece I did for Girl Fights MMA. Paying homage to Ronda Rousey’s crazy finishes by honoring fellow women who pulled off outstanding finishes.
My little ode to Ms. Ronda Rousey ahead of her showcase fight with Bethe Correia tomorrow night.
