LOS ANGELES, CA NOVEMBER 21, 2011 –Evolve Media Corp.’s CraveOnline (www.craveonline.com), one of the fastest growing next-generation male lifestyle sites, announced today the launch of its new MMA online destination titled ‘Get Closer to the Cage’ featuring legendary MMA announcer Bruce Buffer and current Strikeforce Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.
This high-impact and multi-tiered custom destination takes MMA fans right to the action with various features that get you ‘Closer to the Cage’. The site takes a unique spin on the “Technique of the Week” with host Luke Rockhold (Strikeforce Middleweight Champion) teaching the CraveOnline Girls (some hotties doing the techniques) all his tricks in the cage. The Crave Girls will demonstrate techniques to help any fighter defend themselves in various situations and positions. There is also a top 10 list with the Best Ways to Protect Yourself that schools visitors on how to keep up their guards. The site includes Sherdog’s “Fight Week” a weekly web show that features the most informative MMA fight analysis, extensive video coverage including bloopers, behind the scenes, interviews and more from some of the biggest names in MMA. It’s an up close look at the fighters in and out of the cage!
Last but not least and probably the most exciting component of this destination is the once in a lifetime sweepstakes that will give one lucky Crave user and guest the opportunity to get “Closer to the Cage” with UFC Ring Announcer, Bruce Buffer -“The Official Voice of the Octagon.” Crave is not only giving a lucky winner access to “The Buffer”, they are sending them to Sin City and hooking them up with tickets to a UFC event in Las Vegas, dinner with Bruce Buffer, hotel accommodations, and access to a professional fighter with experience in the cage
"What we are doing with Technique of the Week for 'Get Closer 2 the Cage' is extremely entertaining for the audience," said Luke Rockhold. "I am excited to be working on this project with CraveOnline and Sherdog as they continue to bring the best of MMA to online."
