    Hey guys and gals,

    I want to create a website with UFC and MMA content with a store.

    A) Should I go with Wordpress, Joomla, other suggestion?

    B) Any themes that you think will work for that niche?

    I checked out templatemonster.com and dreamtemplates.com but didnt find anything that fit.

    Suggestions appreciated//

    a) If you have never used a CMS script before, WordPress is a good place to start. Either will work fine though.

    b) It's unlikely you will find a premade template with an MMA theme. This is something you will probably have to design yourself/outsource.

    Hey dude,

    just thought i'd post cos i am doing a lot of mma stuff lately,

    http://www.fight-factory.co.uk
    http://www.strikensubmit.co.uk/
    http://www.cagedsteelgym.co.uk/

    My business partner goes around UK filming a lot of MMA events and producing their DVD of the event. Consequently i ended up making/hosting their websites too. CagedSteel and Strike&Submit provided the designs and i coded them into themes.

    FightFactory however is mine and my partners site, if you need any advice i'd be more than happy to help out.
