No Holds Barred: Matthew Kaplowitz on the Fight Nerd Video Game Open, Brick City MMA, and Bellator Tryouts
We open our lengthy and nerdy interview by discussing two mixed martial arts events Matthew covered on Saturday, October 2: the fighter tryouts for the Bellator Fighting Championships in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the debut show of the Brick City Fighting Championship in Newark, New Jersey. We analyzed the fights on the Brick City card, as well as the organization of their first event, and noted how often fighting events are better experienced live than on television or webcast.
Matthew is also organizing the first Fight Nerd Video Game Open event, entitled “Fall Brawl 2010″. This tournament featuring MMA video games will take place Saturday, October 16, starting at 12 noon EDT, at 8 Bit And Up Video Games, 35 St. Marks Place, 2nd Floor (on the corner of 2nd Avenue and 8th Street), New York, NY 10003. Registration is available online at http://www.getreadytogame.com/MMA.cfm.
