Esther Lin, Casey Leydon Join Press Row

By Jordan Breen Apr 18, 2012

Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the blog. This week, Breen welcomes founders Esther Lin and Casey Leydon inside Press Row.

With the UFC 145 headliner between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans quickly approaching, Breen, Lin and Leydon discuss the bouts outside-the-cage components, breaking down the professional position and public perception of trainer Greg Jackson, the polarizing nature of both Jones and Evans and the fan-made narratives surrounding both fighters. The trio opine on why precisely “Jonny Bones” seems to get fans so worked up, ideas about “authenticity” in MMA and much more.

The three also rap on a host of tangential topics, including holograms, casinos, musician Chris Brown, racism in MMA and which fighter has the edge in the all-important entrance music battle.

Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
