Attica MMA - Christian "War God" Darrow, Long Island, NY
A friend sent me the link to this website:
A new huge training facility being set up by one Christian "War God" Darrow, claiming stellar credentials which apparently landed him "what may be the most lucrative contract in MMA history".
Some useful links:
YouTube- ATTICA MMA's SUPER FIGHTING FACILITY - Loads of videos on his Youtube channel, including one where he calls out Jamie Varner.
http://www.atticamma.com/christian.html - His profile
Needless to say, a closer look at this fellow would no doubt yield some entertainment.

Do me a favor, add "Long Island NY" to the title, should get more of us NY'ers in here. I was just about to make this thread also!
James Funaro from the UG.
I have a bunch of friends who know of him thorugh friends and such kind of, I'm jumping on this.

Well, this website certainly looks like fun for the whole Bullshido family. Let's start with the absolutely insane fight league description:
Whre the hell do you begin? From "lethal" fighters to the anti-grapple comment to the undefeated prison record claims. I guess the first step is to actually look up this bonehead's criminal record to see if his "16 year undefeated record" is even possible (as in, did he even go to jail, yet alone stay in for 16 years).

Likewise, the mission statement contradicts itself. Early on, they imply to have signed all the fighters from the street fighting league, yet then say Christian is their first signed fighter.
As for the rest of the site:
-The gym teaches both "MMA" and "Ultimate Fighting"
- The pictures of Christian are all of him attempting to look jacked and tough. They're worth a good laugh.
- He claims his name was "Sin" for his prison fights.
- He's also an underground fighting "champion". I guess if you're making unfalsifiable claims, there's no need to be humble with them.
- Christian drives a Nissan, in case anyone gives a ****.
- ...but wait, doesn't he have a picture of a Corvette with an "Attica" liscense plate on his pictures section? Why are you bragging about your Nissan when you drive a Corvette? Oh, I get it now: That 'vette belongs to one of your loyal fans from your prison fight championship days...
- Fighter Profiles, Power Punch Fitness, and Products/Supplements are fortunately not up yet.
They forgot to put a mission statement in their mission statement.
Is this for real, and not just a ridiculously early April Fool's gag? It hits damn near every check on the "run away like your hair is on fire" list. This guy is several years too late for people to buy this kind of marketing.
Checked him out at the New York DCS website (link below) and he has never been in their system.
YouTube- Christian Darrow and Stony Brook Journalism Major Matt
Now that's an article I wouldn't mind reading. As far as I can tell, the closest Houlihan's to Stony Brook School of Journalism is 199 Mills Pond Rd St James, NY 11780. (631) 862-0100
I don't suppose any of you NY/NJ types would be interested in tracking down Mat and seeing if he'll let you take a look at his homework?

It's the online equivalent of kicking sand over a skinny kid at the beach to impress your buddies.
