Matt Steck
Writer
Writing for NJ MMA New since 2011, Connor is passionate about covering local mixed martial arts. He graduated from Temple University’s School of Media and Communications with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. His love for MMA stems from his past as a high school wrestler and jiu-jitsu blue belt. Former UFC fighter Kurt Pellegrino coached Connor in his senior year of high school. He worked as a Rally Sports Desk report for The Philadelphia Inquirer and interned as a sports reporter for the Philadelphia Daily News. Like many others, Matt is a fan of MMA, but what stands out is his interest in a good story. With no background in journalism, Matt is an efficient writer and reporter, always making sure he is getting every little detail. A fan of paintball and stand-up comedy, Matt continues to improve as a reporter.
