On this episode of Carson's Corner, we welcome back one of our favorite people in the world of MMA and combat sports, John Perretti.  A lifelong martial artist, former UFC and Battlecade Extreme Fighting matchmaker, TV commentator, Perretti has solidified himself in MMA as a pioneer who coined the term, "Mixed Martial Arts" and created rounds and weight classes for MMA. Despite being "redacted from MMA history", Perretti is now officially on record discussing his life and accomplishments in his new book, The Origin Of A Species and Mixed Martial Arts.
