Welcome to MMA Squared, and thank you for reading this editorial cartoon series. I’m so grateful to the Bloody Elbow readers that have clicked, commented, and otherwise received my work. This has been a great adventure, staying both creative and disciplined, navigating the sport and putting together what’s turning into a cool, strange gallery of artwork.
I’ll be taking next week off from cartooning, and have some supplemental work prepared for my absence which I hope you enjoy; it’s quite ambitious.
Let’s get started. In no particular order, here is the MMA Squared 2019 Mid-Year Collection!

Fedor fought. The run up was anxiously exciting but the knockout loss to Ryan Bader was rough to watch.
Maybe Georges St. Pierre retired. Maybe.
We saw Showtime, one more time. Anthony Pettis
The new PPV system was announced and we are officially in a new era.

As always, take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you soon.
