I love all types of sports; football, basketball, hockey but Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is one of my favorite sports. A lot of people don't understand the sport and that is ok, what people don't see are all the behind the scenes stuff. The sportsmanship, the unity, the training and the discipline are the reasons why I love the sport.
I've had the opportunity to work with a few promotions companies in the last 8 years and attend many events doing various things. But what I witnessed this last weekend at Legion Combat's event in Wyoming, is something I've never seen at an MMA event. Due to technical problems that Disc Jockey was unable to play the National Anthem. As everyone stood there looking at each other wondering what was going on, a group of people started singing and the rest of the crowd joined in. AWESOME!!
This last weekend was something I've been needing in a long time. I haven't been to an MMA event in almost 7 months. I was able to see great friends, enjoy awesome fights, meet new people and finally witness something that put a huge smile on my face and that is UNITY. I love the RED, WHITE and BLUE and my favorite National Holiday of the year is the 4th of July and this made me love the sport and our Nation even more this last weekend!!
