Just asking…

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

Every MMA site went out of their way to cover the DREAM 6 event as if it was a big deal, and yet when the bad TV ratings predictably were released, none of these sites are talking about the fallout. I am curious as to why…

DREAM 6 event fallout

Quote of the Day – Female MMA fans

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Joanne laughs and says, “The guys are hot!” Chris Kiehl, who works out as the same gym as Houston says, “I think girls like to watch guys get animalistic.” Besides watching the half dressed men duke it out, one woman is taking notes.
