Justin Giefer is a life long athlete who has developed a passion for combat sports at a young age. As a child, he studied Tae Kwon Do until eventually making the transition to American football. It wasn't until he saw the legendary fight between Bob Sapp and Minotauro Nogueira that served to reignite his interest in mixed martial arts. Now, he trains at Erik Paulson's Combat Submission Wrestling gym located in Fullerton, California.
After receiving a degree in English Literature from UC Irvine, Justin decided to combine his writing skills and passion for combat sports to pursue a career in MMA journalism.
