Fight Hub TV came about as an accident of sorts. Founder Marcos Villegas began writing and interviewing mma fighters and boxers as sort of a hobby in July of 2009. He quickly became a published writer, having been featured in magazines such as MMA Worldwide and various websites such as mma mania, cageface.com and convictedartist.com. Having worked for a upstart mma promotion based out of Ontario and experiencing a layoff, Marcos focused his new found free time on on camera work as well. He began interviewing anyone he could get on camera. Having no personal site to put his interviews on he started the fight hub youtube channel that quickly became highly trafficked and viral. After reaching about a quarter of a million views for his various video interviews, it dawned on him that it might be a good idea to finally take the idea of fight hub and create a online space for it.
Fight hub is exactly what it sounds. A hub of stories, interviews and training footage of the greatest athletes that represent all combat sports.
Marcos is a life long fight fan having started his fight game hobby at the age of 8. He regularly watched boxing fights growing up and began to wrestle at the age of ten. He attended Cal State Fullerton and graduated with a degree in Advertising and a minor in Radio, TV, Film. It was during his time in college that he was introduced to mma via a Cro-Cop right hand to the eye of Bob Sapp. Shortly after he enrolled in a Brazilian Jui-Jitsu school and continues to admire all aspects of combat sports. Marcos has interviewed the likes of Floyd Mayweather Jr., “Sugar” Shane Mosley, Oscar De La Hoya, Urijah Faber, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and aspires to someday be a on camera analyst and commentator.
