I'm curious...did no body see the Desert Brawl coverage or did no body care? I'm an aspiring MMA-journalistic type guy. I'd appreciate feedback (other than, "Get some better equipment and a better seat"....I've gotten those already.)
Thanks in advance

I have no clue what Desert Brawl is.....

I've only read the name somewhere, but haven't seen or heard a thing about it. I'm looking now, out of curiosity. Good luck with journalism.

I'm not sh##ting ya, that's a good review! I appreciated how you set up some of the scenarios with some history, gave plenty of details, and described things from a fighter's perspective which made it more realistic. I'd say you just might have yourself a career there buddy. But whatda I know about journalism...almost nothing, but I heard it pays to adopt a unique personality in your writing; your own style: but everybody knows that. I can't even do it here. Everybody knows that too. Damn you people, you're all too smart.

Thanks. I try to cover as many of the local events I can in the Pacific Northwest. I've been hitting the Oregon shows lately, too.
Chael Sonnen's FCFF, Team Quest's Sport Fight and JT Taylor's Desert Brawl are the three that I know of in Oregon that happen regularly.
In Washington State Dennis Hallman runs his Ultimate Ring Challenge series and Anthony Hamlett's has his Xtreme Ring Wars occasionally. When they were working together they called it Ultimate Fight Night (that happened only two or three times).
Matt Hume runs his promotions up here, too.
My problem is that I really enjoy covering them, but the wife is tired of me spending money to get to them, get film developed, spend time on the computer writing the reviews, etc etc etc. I started thinking that I needed to find a way to get them to pay for themselves instead.
I still haven't figured that out yet.

Yeah, that's a tough one. You can only get away with calling it a hobbie for so long or spending as much as your other half will let you. If the other half could somehow spend more you certainly could...hmmm. Or what if "they" were calling you (the local expert), asking, even insisting, you cover this and that event for them...what's a guy to do?...(and maybe "they" just happens to be a friend of yours :wink: ). Just don't give up on it if that's what you really want and if there's any way. And get your name out there, everywhere. Saturate the web. I also heard about an Oregon BJJ event held at Oregon State University (Corvalis, Oregon; Couture taught wrestling there) either last year or the year prior. That might be an event to cover also, but I don't know if it's a regular thing. Good luck.
