Kyle Shiely has spent the last 10 years studying the sport and business of Mixed Martial Arts. As editor of the No Holds Barred e-newsletter, he's one of the early MMA journalists. He is a licensed MMA judge for the state of Minnesota and has spent the last year traveling across the state judging fights for a variety of local promotions.
He has also been involved with the Minnesota Combative Sports Commission as it continues the process of regulating the growing sport of MMA in Minnesota.
When he’s not watching MMA or arguing who’s the best pound-for-pound fighter on a variety of Internet message boards, Shiely works as a technical engineer and producer at 830 WCCO. He is married and lives with his wife and their two children (a cat and dog) in St Paul.
