Syntax Records’ staff (L to R: Steve Trudeau, Jeremiah Bonds, Tim Trudeau, Shane Newville, Chad Horton, Brandon Musser, and Donnell Johnson) are pictured and interviewed in the April issue of one of the top MMA magazines, Fight Magazine with Urijah Faber on the cover.

It’s not uncommon for those familiar with the Syntax Records brand to find hints of MMA intertwined both with the staff and artists. In fact, some of the Syntax affiliates have been closely following the sport since before it was even called MMA. Thus making sense, that Fight Magazine contacted Syntax when they decided to do an article on independent music and MMA. They even mentioned Syntax as one of only three labels to have their logo make an appearance in the UFC Octagon.

Check out Fight Magazine’s April issue (Urijah Faber on the cover) for discussion between President of Syntax Records, Timothy Trudeau and journalist Bear Frazer concerning the potential between MMA and the music industry. Pick up the new April issue on stands everywhere, or at
