Living & Writing MMA


One thing most of my readers don’t know about me is I trained in Muay Thai Kickboxing as well as Grappling. One of my five brothers, Tedd Williams,  is an ex-UFC champion and he has owned a few gyms over the decades that I trained at.

It all started with a women’s “self-defense” class. I went more to be a help and a warm body in his brand-new women’s class and ended up loving it which is why I went on to train in more specifics. I even taught for a while.

Anyhow, mixed martial arts (MMA) has been a big part of my life for a long time and is a bit of a family affair. Tedd owns Gladiator Challenge, INC — an MMA cage fight promotion company out of Southern California. I have done a lot of work for my brother over the decades and currently handle press releases and fighter contracts for the company. I also work some of the fights along with one of my other brothers and my dad.

In addition, I am a writer for an MMA website and digital magazine called Gladiators of the Cage (unrelated to Gladiator Challenge). I thought maybe some of my readers were into MMA and would be interested in some of my work there. Feel free to leave comments and share if you’re into MMA too.

Have you ever fought in the cage? Do you know someone who has?

    It’s amazing how great things start small.
    A self-defence class started it…
    Smiling at life.
    Lovely post.
