AKA Custom's Mask Tribute Hayabusa To Be Raffled For Children's Charities 3 Days Left

Coach's Corner - The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades!

Hello Hurtsbad Members. A wise philosopher once stated: "I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow." He was, of course, speaking of the generations that follow us. In the case of MMA, BJJ, and Submission Grappling, I have had a rare glimpse of the future, and it's very bright indeed.

The Revolution BJJ and Submission Grappling Tournament

The Pacific Northwest has had a long history of laying the foundations of Martial Arts in America.

And at the forefront of Northwest competition is a test of…

Two Titles On The Line At Shane Dunagan's Xtreme Courage Fighting Championships

The life of an amateur fighter is turbulent to say the least. For the aspiring mixed martial artist yet to make their pro debut, sometimes the questions can far outweigh the answers a fighter seeks.

Other than sound and productive training, one of the most invaluable assets a fighter can find is a banner under which to cut their teeth. With most fighters looking to limit variables in their young careers, a good promoter to fight for can be a… Continue

When an athlete is so talented that they feel no equal, do they transcend the quest for competition? When a fighter is so lethal that they can not help but destroy all they touch, what challenges can they look to? How do they test themselves?

The cream rises to the top, it has always been that way but every so often even the cream has to look up and appreciate the type of greatness that can’t be caged in by such a term that describes them as… Continue

Mixed Martial Arts has become a very profitable and lucrative industry as of late. It is no mystery that the sport has made its transition from “The Little Engine That Could” to an unstoppable bullet train.

Much of that success lies hand in hand with the success of the UFC. As the story goes, Dana White approached the Fertitta brothers about purchasing the struggling brand and they have since turned it into a sporting empire.
