ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” to Highlight Rad Martinez Today
Today at ESPN's "Outside the Lines" will be featuring the life of MMA's Rad Martinez.
The former NCAA Division I All-American wrestler already has a 9-2 pro MMA record. He entered the world of MMA fighting due to the support of Frankie Edgar, his former teammate in Clarion University and the current UFC lightweight champion.
“Outside the Lines” will air today at 9 a.m. ET on ESPN and 10 a.m. ET on ESPN2. The program can also be watched on “SportsCenter” at 10 a.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET.
The said program is expected to unveil Rad Martinez’ life outside the cage. He will be discussing how he is able to manage two different lives: As a professional MMA fighter, and as a caretaker to his brain-damaged father. He will also reveal why he still shows the videos of his matches to his father, even though he is not capable of understanding those. He explained:
“He never got to see me wrestle in college. He never got to see me wrestle at all. I think if he were well, and didn’t have brain damage, I think he would want to see that, so I’m going to show him.
“Everybody says the exact same thing: ‘Wow, I don’t know if I could do that.’ That’s funny to me that people say that because I kind of know that a lot of people could do it. My grandma did it until she died. I’m going to it until: A. My dad gets better; B. My dad passes away; or C. I pass away.”
Rad Martinez became a professional fighter last 2008 and had won several matches, including the one wherein he finished the two-time UFC fighter – Joe Brammer – by a knockout.View Article Source »
