Who knew that when two MMA fans met days before UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier in Fairfax, VA that it would be the start of something special in the mixed martial arts world. That day, as Erik Johnson waited patiently for Dustin Poirier to come down to the hotel bar when Mike Ginn used to work, that a conversation was struck up. A friendship formed and as they say… the rest is history.
Fast forward to February of 2013 and Art of MMA was born and a voice to the fighters was given. Since day one, Art of MMA have always put fighters first. Whether it’s the top guy on a UFC card or the up and comer that deserves those headlines as he or she makes their way up the food chain. Through our interviews and stories, it’s always fighters first.
We have had the privilege to interview some of MMA’s most influential people like Burt Watson and Jon Anik to some of the amazing up and coming stars like Shane Burgos, Paul Felder and numerous others that have made their way through different promotions on their way to the UFC and other major promotions such as Bellator and OneFC.
As the next chapter of Art of MMA evolves, we are proud to return and to return with the same passion as before. Fighters and the sport first. As Art of MMA returns, look forward to our new podcast, articles and most definitely new interviews.
