Vancouver Canucks Rick Rypien reads MMAmania 'everyday'

From Rick Rypien's Media Blitz:

"... Rypien is an avid mixed martial arts fan. In 2006, at the Canucks summer conditioning camp, he got to try his hand at some basic technique of the sport.

MMA is a full contact sport that combines several forms of martial arts that rivals boxing and wrestling. The sport is growing quickly and becoming one of the most popular sports with it becoming almost ubiquitous. And to keep up with the sport, Rypien has his go-to.

'The last website I went to was MMAmania.com. I go on it everyday and it covers MMA all over the world. I like following all that stuff because I find it very interesting.'

The debate for the best MMA fighter is probably up in the air but Rypien’s got his top choice.

'I like Anderson Silva, he’s one of my favourites. I was a big Chuck Liddell fan but he kind of fell off the map a little bit.' Silva is a Muay Thai specialist but also has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Tae kwon do, and Judo. In 29 fights, he has only lost 4 times.

Good to hear, Rick. Do your thing against the Minnesota Wild this weekend. Make us proud.
