In China, 2014 is the Year of the Horse, in the IOC this is the Year of the XXII Olympic Winter Games, but in MMA many are calling this the Year of the Strawweight. The UFC, the sport’s premier organization, is set to lead the way by establishing a Women’s MMA strawweight division complete with an entire twentieth season of its hit reality show The Ultimate Fighter geared around crowning the winner as the promotion’s first-ever strawweight champion.
Sacrifice is huge part of the MMA world. For Resurrection Fighting Alliance’s Zac Chavez sleep is a big sacrifice. The 25 year old fighter from Colorado works a grueling schedule to provide for his family and then works just as hard sharpening his skills as a mixed martial artist. Zac joined Pro MMA Now Radio to talk about his upcoming fight and more.
