Greetings Prof. Schmitz Weiss! Welcome to my blog about the San Diego Mixed Martial Arts scene. This blog will focus on local MMA promotions throughout San Diego county down to Baja California. These promotions range from amateur to professional level and included in the coverage will be local gyms who participate and compete across the county and nation. In the past I have managed a blog which discussed weekly match-ups in the NFL but for the past 2 years, I have shifted my focus on MMA because of its rising popularity and the lack of coverage of discussion in San Diego.

Throughout this semester, this blog will be a platform in which I will present different forms of multimedia which capture the essence of the sport while being presented in a journalistic fashion. Earlier this week I attended an amateur MMA event at the Four Points hotel which was put on by EPIC fighting promotion. This event was nothing like I’ve been to before as the octagon was about the third of the size of a big promotion like the UFC and I was among about 500 other people mostly standing in a hotel banquet room. Stay tuned for upcoming coverage and posts!
