was started by Danielle Hobeika in order to provide a source of Mixed Martial Arts news and information specific to the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area, which is known as a hotbed for MMA. Matt Giancarlo is a regular contributor, who shares his MMA insights and videos. Both Matt and Danielle train and compete in MMA.

The goal of this website is to bring together local MMA and combat sports promoters, fighters, and fans and create a community where news, event information, videos, photos, and business listings can be shared.

If you are a writer, videographer, photographer, promoter, fighter, fan, or local vendor who wishes to contribute your content or event information to this website, please contact us, as all contributions and suggestions are welcomed.

Feel free to browse event information on the events calendar, check out the photo gallery for recent fight pictures, or list your MMA academy’s contact info in our schools directory.
