John Perretti, MMA Matchmaker

I recently talked to John Perretti, the former matchmaker for both the Ultimate Fighting Championship and the Extreme Fighting Championship.

In our fifty minute interview John and I discussed the early days of the sport, how he found and selected fighters, brain trauma in the combat sports, his disdain for the current state of the UFC, and much more.

So if you’re a fan of early MMA there’s a lot of good behind-the-scenes stuff here for you!
