Life Lesson: If you’re getting tattoos to look cool, but can only come up with “barbed wire + tribals + first name in graffiti”, you’ll look so much cooler without tattoos. Props: MMAWeekly.com
You know how you felt when your friend found out that he got accepted into Princeton, and then you found out that you got accepted into the local D3 university? How you realized that your announcement was nowhere near as big as his, but hey, you still felt pretty good? Well, this is something like that: MMA Weekly reports that yesterday, Fight Now TV obtained the exclusive rights to Colorado based promotion Ring of Fire MMA.
Don’t sleep on Ring of Fire MMA just because it may be the first time you’ve heard of it. Ring of Fire is the former stomping grounds of current UFC fighters Shane Carwin, Brendan Schaub, Donald Cerrone, Diego Sanchez and Duane Ludwig. The promotion is currently home to UFC/WEC veteran Tyler Toner, Serbian MMA fighter Bojan Velickovic, who won his contract with the promotion on Europe’s answer to The Ultimate Fighter, Put Ka Venronom Ringu (English: The Road to Ring of Fire), as well as Anthony Njokuani’s unfortunately nicknamed younger brother, Chidi “Chidi Bang Bang” Njokuani.
The promotion’s next event, tonight’s Ring of Fire 41: Bragging Rights, will be aired on Fight Now TV via tape delay. ROF 41 was set to feature a welterweight title fight between Brandon Thatch and Chidi Njokuani, but has been demoted to a non-title fight due to Njokuani missing weight by two pounds.
