Andria Caplan was barely aware of mixed martial arts when she and her brother took their passion for the band Biohazard to Philadelphia's Trocadero Theatre about six years ago.

A music enthusiast, Andria had even played bass in a high school band with friends, and the group was one of her favorites.

"We went crazy in the little pit every time we heard them," Andria told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

That night, though, her life would change and lead to a new passion. That's because one of the bouncers working the club that night was Sam Caplan, a dabbler in kung fu and MMA who was on the verge of his own MMA career, though his veered toward the editorial, marketing and promotions end of the business.
