Welcome to the first episode of what I hope to be a new series on TheFightNerd.com, “Red Corner VS Blue Corner”. This series will bring you behind the scenes and inside the locker rooms during live MMA events, and we are kicking things off with the August 20th edition of Bellator FC.
We shadowed former UFC Heavyweight Champion Ricco Rodriguez (who would meet Seth Petruzelli later in the event) in one room, and Ryan Quinn and Dan “Cosmo” Cramer from American Top Team in another room as they prepared for their respective fights on the card. Now you can see what it’s like to get ready for a match moments before it happens, and how each of these warriors “flip the switch” to go from what you see in interviews and in the gym, into what they become when they step into the cage.
And while you are here, don’t forget to enter our contest to win shirts and MMA gloves from Bellator! It’s as easy as sending a tweet… because that’s all you have to do to win!
