This forum is pretty dead and it's unfortunately considering we have so many people from this state on this website.

In an attempt to liven this place up, I created a quick Q&A...

Where are you from in PA?

Do you fight, promote, or own a MMA-related company? (Post up your site, address, etc)

Are you planning to attend any future events in NJ or DE?

What other forums (here or elsewhere) do you post at?

Name a local fighter that we should all check out...

I am from honolulu so some local fighters that have been getting some print are kale kalohe and mark kurano. and one of my favorites (but you probably already know of him) jason mayhem miller.

 Nice!

I'm from the Allentown area in PA and I have lived in this area for most of my life. I own Backfist Media (obviously, haha) which I started to get more involved with MMA in a local (and hopefully national) level. I want to check out some of Lou Neglia's events in AC in August/September and hope to be able to photograph some stuff there as well. I post mainly here for MMA and a local fighter to check out, if you haven't seen him on TUF 7, is Matt Riddle.

He's not really local, but keep your eyes on Hollidaysburg's Charlie Brennaman. This kid has a solid wrestling pedigree and has already taken to the sport very quickly. He's 9-1, and went 5-0 in the amateur ranks. He's finished 5 of his 9 victories professionally and has a of his 14 fights total, he's finished 9 of them.

His only loss was a hotly contested, close decision loss to John Howard.

You'll be seeming more of this kid soon, I assure you.

We host two shows (An online Radio Show/Podcast and 10 minute Youtube show) and write articles/blogs. We also help in the media side of things with fighters/agents/promoters/gyms in terms of getting the word out.

 Wing's Martial Arts in Trevose/Feasterville. We teache MMA, BJJ and Kempo. We have a growing active fight team. This video highlights three of our guys.
You should for sure be watching Chris "Red Line" Wing. Everyone was making a big deal about the Funaro-Darrow fight. Red Line knocked out Funaro on 2-27-10. Here is a link to the fight.
