TEMECULA, Calif. -- Georgi Karakhanyan locked in a guillotine choke on Bubba Jenkins in the first round Friday night at Bellator 132 and it was tight.

Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual: It’s a familiar group of motivators distilled down into a very nice, very novel little acronym. And if you notice the acronym’s similarity to another term, so does the term’s inventor, Bubba Jenkins. “It’s similar to the spelling of ‘maps’ on purpose, because it’s about trying to get to a certain place,” Jenkins said in read news >>
