Welcome to MMA on Tap, our first ever attempt at a MMA-type website. As you can see, it’s pretty blog-like as of right now, but we plan on adding a lot more to this site in the future. Links and feedreaders will hopefully be included shortly. Forums aren’t totally out of the question.
We encourage everyone to sign up for an account. If you already have one at The Ice Block or KO Corner, then you are already set. Commenting will be pretty open from the start, but we please ask that things remain civilized, we don’t want anything getting too out of hand.
