The Clinch Report is designed by a life-long martial arts fan, and part time participant. This site is a combination of relevant news sources, original content, and interesting videos concerning the Mixed Martial Arts world.

Please feel free to join this blog, and submit any ideas or information that you like.

There is only one rule at The Clinch Report. At all times when discussing fighters make sure to give proper respect. Unless you have laced up gloves, or entered a cage, there is no conceivable way for the novice fan to know how much work goes into every fight.  Although free thought is encouraged, please be respectful to each-other, and at all times when discussing the participants in the industry!

Politicians call us barbaric, they don’t shake hands after losing! We do!

Thank You

    Hello Mr.King i have only recently started to follow your blog and i think you take a very intelligent approach to MMA. I love the sport and the respect you give the fighters. One of my favorite fighters just got cut from the UFC and i was very unhappy about it so i created a Facebook page to support him. So far we only have about 100 likes and im looking to get many more. Your site was recommended to me by my teacher Mr.Kreuder and he said to mention him because i wanted to ask if you would help promote and support the page and in turn i will keep the link of your website on the page as one of our supporters. Please email me back if possible.

    Do you have anyone covering King of the Cage “Enemy Territory” on Nov. 30?


  3. Nathalie says:

    Yes, I will be attending. I’m a sports photographer with MMA experience, mainly in NorCal. I would love to be able to cover this event, especially for The Clinch Report.
