First of all Charles and I would like to say welcome to the new and improved version of MMA For Real here on the SBNation. If you are new to MMA For Real we welcome you with open arms. Those familiar with us already know we have mad love for you as well! If it wasn't for you guys we wouldn't even be here. We’ll still be covering the major MMA events. However, the ultimate goal is to make this a one stop shop for North Carolina MMA and the surrounding areas.
If you are new to SBNation make sure you take a look around at all of the ridiculously nice features we have at our disposal. The technology is designed to help foster intelligent conversation (well the intelligent part is up to you ;) and we would love for you to take part in the community here. We would like for you to pay particular attention to the fan posts and fan shots sections. If you want your opinion on a particular subject to be heard, or you find some obscure piece of information/video you want to share then those are the places for you. That's where you can go to write your own pieces and be heard if you ever tire of reading what we have to write! Click here for more information on how use those features. Also, if you will glance over to the left you'll see MMA and Grappling events scheduled to take place in North Carolina and the surrounding areas. You will also find some of the best places to train in that section as well. Whether it's just to get back in shape(like I need to do), or if you have ambitions of becoming the next big thing in MMA.
We would also like to thank all the guys behind the scenes at SBN for getting everything set up, and thanks for the opportunity to join such a great network. Also, a special shoutout to the guys at Bloodyelbow.
We are always open to hearing from you guys, so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with input on ways you think the site could improve. We'll do everything we can to make this site the best it can be. However, it will become even better with participation and contributions from you the readers! We hope you enjoy your time here at MMA For Real, and be sure to spread the word about us.
