Joe LaRocca is the best.

It’s impossible not to love this guy. Joe LaRocca, who improved to 1-1 in his amateur MMA career this past Saturday at Brawl in the Burgh 13 with a nine-second knockout win over Jacob Loeffert, just has it.


We’re not sure exactly what “it” is, either. But we know LaRocca has it.

247 Fighting Championships owner Ryan Middleton and matchmaker Jim Mooney joined me during a recent edition of the Pittsburgh Combat Sports Podcast, and the conversation inevitably turned to LaRocca.

Could we crack the code?

Not exactly. But we could gush over everything he brings to the table.

From his fighting style to his demeanor to his Golden Girls shirt –– yes, seriously –– and everything in between, LaRocca is just special.
