MMA for Kids: A Family Story


  • Kholood Eid

This week our feature story tells the tale of Mike and Madeline Green, a father-daughter duo hailed as two of the toughest fighters in the city. Once an untamed street brawler, Mike Green turned his life around through fatherhood -- and in the process raised the best MMA prospect in the region.

Below is a great slideshow by RFT photographer Kholood Eid that gets into the heart and soul of Mike Green ... and spotlights a 12-year-old prodigy who you'll be hearing a lot more about for years to come.
