About MMA-Underground and JP Berube

The MMA-Underground.com site is supported by real MMA fighters, people that train in MMA, and MMA enthusiasts and fans. The diverse perspectives offered in the blogs seem to both appeal to various facets of the MMA community at large, and ruffle the feathers of many others. The mission of the MMA-Underground.com team is to bring fans the truth;not a watered down, sugar coated version of the truth, but the reality of what is happening in MMA today.

The site is run by JP Berube, whostarted out as a developer at the LA Times. Berube started the MMA Blogs experiment at the Times, but was quickly introduced to the folks at CombatWire.com. Since CombatWire.com is a partner site of the Tribune, a subsidiary of the LA Times, Berube is focusing his attention on LA.CombatWire.com and on getting his team's articles and interviews onto the various Tribune sites. Berube, being a religious fan of the sport, also trains in MMA two to three times a week. There is a whole team of contributors to the MMA-Underground.com blog and the list seamlessly continues to grow every day. Companies, writers, and friends cannot wait to be a part of the synergistic force known as MMA-Underground.com.
