Tim Leidecker

Author name Born and raised just outside Berlin in the now defunct German Democratic Republic with two sisters and a budgerigar, Tim Leidecker graduated from Espengrund High School in 2000. Having attended the University of Potsdam, where he is studying German philology as well as English and American literature, he has balanced university life with his full-time job at Groundandpound.de, the premier mixed martial arts website for German-speaking Europe, which he founded in 2005.

In 2007, Tim started contributing to Sherdog.com as a European correspondent, analyst and feature writer. His work has also appeared on ESPN.com as well as in Budo International, Fighters Only, Ground & Pound and Karate magazines. When he isn’t working or studying, Tim is cheering on his favorite soccer team in Werder Bremen, playing video games or hanging out at rock concerts. Readers can follow him on Twitter @TimLeidecker.
