The Body Lock

The Body Lock focuses on sharing fascinating perspectives on martial artists through the form of interviews, insights, and analysis with fans from all over the world.

In particular, we help to promote the athletes and events from the UFC, ONE Championship, and Bellator.

We also strive to provide an excellent experience for readers – and that means you will not see auto-play videos or frustratingly large advertisements on our pages (unlike other MMA sites).

What began as a small team has now transformed into a much larger group of authors who share the same incredible passion for this incredible sport.

A fight is like wood carving; multifaceted, beautiful and it'll leave you hurting if you get thrown into one. I have puns like perforated edges: tear-able.
