The state of MMA jounalism

Last week was certainly an interesting one in the world of MMA journalism. Fighthype.com reported UFC and Pride veteran Kevin Randleman signed with Strikeforce. The report started the wheels of the MMA news machine.

White reveals that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira went into his interim title fight with Frank Mir having just come off a case of staph infection and “other problems.” He also said, “It happens to all of us, one day you just show up and look your age.
