Marc Ray

As you may imagine, he spends much of his time watching mixed martial arts as part of his daily routine — not only to pump himself up, but also because he deeply enjoys the sport.

Ray also created sports features in Houston for El Gato Media Network and occasionally produced content for an internship at AARP.
