Yeah, its been quite awhile since I updated anything here, but you all know the reason, so .... Anyway, I have finally posted the Unsigned MMA Glove Guide that Peter Dunbar and Brian Sweet were working on together along with a few others. I wanted to thank all involved because alot of the material that is in there would not have been possible without you.
As for the forum, I am working on paying the bill so that it can be back up, so expect it to be back in business by the end of the week.
So, get your butts in the Unsigned MMA Glove Guide and check it out!
For those that have been trying to get in contact with me, be patient. I will get back to all of you VERY soon.
A big thanks to Deeakay and Guru for the FCI updates and additions over the past week. They are really appreciated!
Dave Herman, Darrell Montague, Gray Maynard, Gilbert Melendez, Francisco Rivera, Ian Loveland, Junior Dos Santos, Jamie Varner, Jason Young, Roger Hollet, Ryan Jimmo, Tyron Woodley, Soa Palelei, Roman Mitichyan, Myles Jury, Marcus Brimage, Tim Elliott, Bernardo Magalhes, Jordan Mein, Lorenz Larkin,

Would like to thank Deeakay for hooking us all up with some new FCI. Added are Justin Lawrence, Francisco Rivera, Antonio Silva, and Glover Teixeira. Tomorrow MMAG will be adding 5 new fighters to the Authentic Signatures section, so check in to take a look at the new guys.
Mike Brown gets his own Authentic Signatures page with images of his sig on a promo and 2 different Official WEC Ouano gloves. Miguel Torres gets the same minus the promo. All 4 glove signatures are in silver sharpie and very clean. Check em out! More Authentic Signature pages to come within the next couple weeks, so check in often.
Plenty of Fighter Contact Information updates and adds today. We finally have a working address for Roger Huerta. Other updates and additions are for Brian Ebersole, Donald Cerrone, Mark Bocek, Vitor Belfort, Michael Kuiper, and Nick Pace. Thanks for the info, Deekay!
Another addition is Mitch Clark. Would like to thank AJ Duffield for that submission as well!
Go get 'em!
We have seen members of MMAGraphing.com win some cool contests, but I think this one might be the coolest. Sometimes winning doesn't involve getting something material, as Bruce Huckfeldt, aka Phyteguru, has proven. Click on the link below to find out about the contest Bruce entered and won through Beckett. Way to go, Guru!
We have a bunch of FCI updates available for you today. The list includes CB Dollaway, Shamar Bailey, Todd Duffee, Leonard Garcia, Michael Johnson, Melvin Guillard, Ryan Jimmo, Rashad Evans, Anthony Johnson, Gesias Cavalcante, Jorge Santiago, Eddie Alvarez, Alistair Overeem, Thiago Silva and Siyar Bahadurzada. MMAGraphing.com wants to see many successes with these updates, so send some stuff out! A huge thanks to Deeakay for the finds!
Formally known as 'The Baby Faced Assassin', Josh Barnett is always a joy to watch. He is also difficult to get an autograph from unless you are standing in front of him. Well, for those that haven't seen Josh's signature, his page will show 3. 2 images are of his signatures on gloves and one is a signed promo, albeit sloppy. Check it.
Finally got around to adding some updates to the Fighter Contact Information database. Diego Sanchez, Benson Henderson, and Lucio Linhares are updated and ready to have something sent to, so send something to them so we can see some returns!The winner of Contest #31 will be announced shortly.
Its small news, but Steve Cantwell and Sam Stout now have Authentic Signatures pages. The Cantwell graph is on a UFC promo and Stout's graphs are on 2 different photos. This brings the total amount of fighters who have Authentic Signature pages to 131 and we have now hit the 400 signature image mark!
Aaron Cooper, aka Coopdiddy, decided he wanted to help Demetrious Johnson's niece, Ellie. She is an infant in a battle with an unknown disease and needs help. You can help her by buying one of many custom made Demetrious Johnson t shirts. All proceeds will go to her medical care.
To find out more on how to help Ellie, please follow this link.
MMAGraphing.com decided to get 4 new fighters posted today for the Authentic Signatures section. Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort, Stipe Miocic, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, and Renzo Gracie have all been added bringing the Authentic Signature section to 129 fighters with 397 signature images to compare. Enjoy.
For members that would like to share their experiences or comments about meeting a fighter to get their autograph, you can now do so as each Authentic Signature fighter page has an Experiences and Comments section. We would love to hear your experiences!
We don't have too many ring girls in the Authentic Signature section, but hopefully that will change. Busty Edith Labelle gets her own page with a very sweet signed 8x10 christening it. Signature is in black and quite distinguishable. Diego Sanchez also gets a page. Wish he wouldn't have changed his moniker to The Dream. Just doesn't sound right for some reason.
Oh, Chuck Liddell gets an update to his page as well. There are now 6 images of Liddell signed gloves, so you should have no problem distinguishing his signature on a glove after visiting this page.
Mr. Diego Nunes and Mr. Sexyama both have their own Authentic Signature pages now. Both are certified trading card signatures. Hopefully some members will start to help with this section more as there are plenty of guys who get to multiple events a year and have the knowledge of how to use a camera. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The prizes for the 2012 Year Long Contest have finally been posted. You can get a gander at them on the 2012 Year Long Contest page. Hopefully they are satisfactory to all that have entered in the contest. Some signed gloves, signed pictures, and some other pretty cool stuff will be sent to all the winners.
Phytguru and Deeakay have provided us with some updates and additions to the Fighter Contact Information database. The list includes Adrian Serrano (retired), Anthony Perosh, Soa Palelei, John Alessio, Dustin Jacoby, Brian Ebersole, Anton Kuivanen, Eliot Marshall, Daniel Cormier, Daron Cruickshank, Dan Hardy, TJ Grant, Travis Browne, ChrisTuchscherer, and Chael Sonnen.

I want to apologize for getting the contest up late, but it is ready for your predictions nonetheless. So, get in there for your chance to win an autographed 8x10 of Brian Ebersole. Contest entries close at noon on Saturday, so don't miss out! Enter here!
Oh, Ebersole's Authentic Signatures page is not posted as well!
Little bit of fighter contact information for you today: Jon Anik (commentator), Forrest Griffin, Ben Saunders, and Fabricio Maldonado. Aaron Simpson now has his own Authentic Signatures page. He is starting off with only a certified trading card signature, but it is a start.

A big thanks to mmafan97671 for the submissions of scanned cards. They are a big help!
There will be 20 new fighters added to the Authentic Signatures page over the coming weeks, so keep an eye out on our Twitter and Facebook pages for announcements.
MMAGraphing finally has a good Kevin Randleman Authentic Signature image to post for comparison purposes. Randleman's signature is not easy to acquire as he rarely signs though the mail. You have to track him down in person to get his signature. This glove was signed with his "The Monster" inscription in silver. Nice.
New fighter Authentic Signature pages coming soon!
Was talking with a buddy of mine and realized that our retired fighter section isn't as big as I would like it to be, so I went ahead and added Larry "Thunderfoot" Cureton. For those that have been following the UFC since its inception, you will know who this fighter is. For those that don't, do your homework ;o). Also updated Ben Saunders' FCI. Good luck!
Tim "The Maine-iac" Sylvia and Rampage Jackson get some images added and updated on their respective Authentic Signature pages. Tim's signature can be seen clearly on a promo signed in silver sharpie and Rampage gets an Official UFC Century glove signed in silver also. Check them out so you can compare to the real deal.
MMAGraphing.com has updated both Rob Emerson and Pat Barry in the FCI database. Both addresses are sound as we have seen some successes with them. We are also adding Ronda Rousey to the Female Fighters FCI page. Looking forward to seeing her and others in the ESPN The Magazine when it comes out.
