There are a lot of people who really don’t like mixed martial arts.

These people often aren’t shy about letting their opinions about the sport well known.

Sarah gathered a number of these opinions together for a piece called “A Brief History Of Outsiders Insulting MMA.”

Grimes Is Into Fighting

Not that it should be a surprise to anyone who paid close attention to some of her wilder music videos, but it appears that electro pop queen Grimes is a big fan of mixed martial arts. Specifically, the strong women of mixed martial arts.

Grimes has been known to sport a Ronda Rousey shirt in public and has called UFC strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk a style icon.

Sarah wrote about this phenomenon for Fightland.

There are, as hard as it may be to believe, alternative media voices out there in the MMA media world beyond Joe Rogan’s braying and Ariel Helwani’s wide-eyed enthusiasm.

One such voice is JJ Anderson, host of 3 Rounds With…, a show on Blackbelt TV.

Sarah spoke to her about fighting, television and some of her more interesting interviews.

Three Artists Critique MMA Fashion

MMA Shirts

MMA Shirts

Despite being fans of the sport, we here at Risky Fuel loathe one thing about mixed martial arts — the shirts.

The amount of times we’ve burst into laughter at the sight of some tough guy walking to the ring in a shirt with a glittering skull with a snake coming out of the eye sockets, wrapped in chains, surrounded by daggers, in the clawed palm of a dragon (or some similar approximation) has been staggering.

But rather than commit a series of insults about these shirts to print, instead Sarah found three genuine artists and got them to critique some outlandish outfits.

Our Lady Peace Discuss The Fighting Arts And George Chuvalo

Our Lady Peace

Our Lady Peace

While our favourite tribute to the fighting arts remains Friendly Rich‘s “The Ballad Of George Chuvalo,” finding out Our Lady Peace were inspired at least in part by fightin’ for their new album Curve was worth talking about.

So I did. With them. Mostly about the aforementioned George Chuvalo, who appeared on OLP’s album.
