Ground and pound! #ShopMMAElite #CBias

So, boxing and wrestling are not what I would consider fun sports to watch.

I know that each of them take a great deal of skill and athleticism, but I would never spend money on tickets to watch.

MMA Fighting is a different story.

If you aren’t familiar with MMA, Mixed Martial Arts, you really should be! It’s a style of fighting that combines grappling and striking. Think of it as boxing, wrestling, and martial arts all rolled into one.

My husband got me hooked on MMA and we are avid watchers of UFC. My favorite fighter, Urijah Faber. I’m not quite sure why I like him so much except that I think it’s because he’s little. Not little like skinny, because that dude’s arms, abs and legs are ripped, but more short. Urijah is my height which compared to some of the other dudes out there is like comparing a horse to a rabbit, size wise.

Our kids also watch MMA with us. We actually end up recording a lot of the fights on our DVR because they like to watch them. It’s a really great bonding experience right before heading to bed. We snuggle on the couch and my hubs and I argue over how long before one fighter taps out.

This may be why I was pretty excited hear about the new MMAElite apparel line that is being sold at Walmart. You can check out the full line at

There are all kinds of MMAElite gear that you can purchase. From shirts to hats, to even backpacks.

We headed to our local Walmart to check out the gear and pick some up for the man of the house. Sadly, when we got there was no indication of the line at all.
We proceeded to check at 4 other stores, all with the same result. Finally our last attempt was heading back to our local store.

We were so excited when we rounded the corner and finally saw the sign announcing that Walmart had the MMA Elite line.

But alas, they had yet to receive the full line. We ended up ordering from home which isn’t all bad. I mean who doesn’t love being able to shop while wearing their pajamas?

The hardest part was waiting for delivery. I couldn’t wait to see my husband try on the shirt and hat that I got him and see if he liked the design that I picked out.

Finally, last Saturday the FedEx man showed up at our door.

Back off ladies, he’s mine! HA HA!

  1. I’m totally with you. I LOVE watching MMA but can’t stand watching boxing. My brothers were wrestlers growing up so I don’t mind watching that but the staged wrestling acts are horrible to watch! Great picture of hubby in his new gear!
