UTAH MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
There are so many different aspects to being a community supporter. One that I feel is overlooked often is our local Mixed Martial Artist (MMA). These athletes continue to put their health on the line through training and in their fights. If you’re a student or even a fan of MMA you understand that fighting isn’t about humiliating or hurting your opponent, rather its about dedication, discipline and growth.
These athletes do a great job showing even the shyest person how to walk life with confidence and honesty. It was only right I invited Utah’s #1 MMA Podcast ‘Damage Plan MMA Podcast’ (Jason LaPorte & Zack Partridge) to come talk about their upcoming event Fierce Fighting Championship XVIII! We get into not only this card but the current state of Utah MMA and its biggest challenges.
The guys are partnering up with local MMA & Jujitsu Schools to provide scholarships to youth within the community. Each show they will highlight a few local schools and they will demonstrate their anti bullying “Be Fierce, Be Kind” Campaign at upcoming events. In the upcoming future the guys will be working towards obtaining a non-profit license for the program and each show they will take a percentage of proceeds to pay for scholarships to local schools.
