Love MMA

No lie, I am loving the state of MMA right now!  PFL is putting on good shows with Florian as a broadcaster.  Always been a fan of LFA to spot young up and coming talent.  Bellator has improved their roster over the last couple years.  UFC is thriving with their fight cards, and with TUF and DWCS.  One and ACA as well.....the fight game is at the best it has ever been!
