Wanna do this right...

Hey everyone, I'm relatively knew to the world of MMA and wanted to introduce myself. I've been floating around these forums for a while as a guest, and have finally decided to register. Everyone here seems pretty cool, laid back, and passionate about the sport.

I've been a fan of professional wrestling (WWE mostly) for almost two decades, as well as enjoiyng boxing and martial arts.

This past year has seen me take a huge interest in MMA, particularly the UFC. My friends recommended it to me for a while, and I've become hooked. I'm still learning my way as afar as the histories, title holders, and fighers. So I admit I will no doubt say something dumb or naive during my time here on the forum.

But I'm happy to learn, my passion for the sport grows more each day, and I hope to become a solid fan of MMA and not just the current poser in a Tapout shirt that I currently am!

Look forward to discussing with you all. Peace!

Welcome aboard!

Don't worry about saying dumb stuff, I do it all the time and I'm a HUGE MMA fan. The best way to really learn about it, is to be an active part of the conversation. The more you ask/talk, the more you're going to learn.

Have fun and be sure to check out the Media section.
