On Today’s MMA Podcast:

  • Our guest is Dr. David Mayeda, co-author of the first ever socio-political book examining the sport of Mixed Martial Arts entitled Fighting for Acceptance: Mixed Martial Artists and Violence in American Society.
  • We talk about a bit about the book, the documentary film spawned from it, and the fighters he interviewed.
  • Also we discussed the social ramifications of fighters making the fight more about violence than skill, and if MMA is indeed safer than boxing.
  • (You can listen to the podcast here or by subscribing to ”MMA in the Morning” on iTunes. Shows every week)
