MMA Writer Description

MMA Freak is an opinion based news source for mixed martial art news and any related trending topics surrounding the sport.

Our columns range from fight card previews/reviews, indepth opinion pieces, breaking news updates, and play-by-play analysis pieces as well. was established in spring 2012, by two writers, Justyn Hornor and Gabriel Keith. Their passions for writing and combat sports lead them to believe they could offer something more than the average and sometimes dull commentary seen in other platforms.

In the course of a year our site went from hundreds of monthly page views to thousands. We have a fantastic writing team now, but we are looking to add 5-10 new writers to the site.
