We have an all new edition of Sucka Shots for January 14 to 20. In a week that consisted of two major events from the world leaders in MMA—Bellator 192 and UFC 220–there was still much to talk about in the sport unrelated to those shows.
This week, Senior Editor Jason Burgos took a look at several stories covered by MMASucka, as well as general news from around the sport. Firstly, he took time to mention the two informative reads from Michael DeSantis covering upcoming events from Shamrock FC. A promotion offering a lot of up and coming talent in the sport.
