Articles in the upcoming MMA Science Journal

The upcoming MMA Science Journal (first edition) is an issue about preperation and confidence before a MMA fight. The first issue features an article about the lay-off of MMA fighters which try to answer the question whether Ring Rust is real and what the effects on the performance are. The second article covers the correlation between confidence during the Weight-ins and the outcome of a fight. Furthermore, is there a connection between a good beard and the loss by KO-ratio?

The first edition of the MMA Science Journal will probably be available in november 2015.
