I'm not exactly a fan of mixed martial arts, but this item from the Washington Examiner's Jim Williams caught my eye. Apparently, one of the bright up-and-comers in the UFC hails from Prince George's County, Maryland. Cristian Morecarft, 24 years old, is 7-1 so far in his fledgling UFC career and is considered one of the sport's young stars. And Morecraft is proud of his P.G. County roots:
"I just want to represent Washington as best as I can. I am proud to be a kid from P.G. County and fighting in the UFC is something that I love and take a great deal of pride in.I love the hard work and I put forth a great deal of effort hone my craft. There is no doubt that I want to be a champion and I do think that some day soon I will reach that goal but it takes time and fighting tougher guys each time. Matt Mitrione is one of those guys who I have to beat to continue to climb to the next level. On Sunday I hope all my many Washington fans will watch me take that next step."
