I was born and raised in Thompson, Manitoba, Canada. I've been following the sport of mixed martial arts everyday since 2007 but found interest after watching Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar on live TV in 2005 when I was 14 years old. Like many Canadians, I grew up playing hockey for the majority of my life. I've always had a passion for sports but now consider MMA my true love. In June 2013, I created The MMA Bulletin on Facebook, since then we've gained a decent following of over 44,000 fans, feel free to check it out. Follow me on Twitter.
