Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Dylan Thomas Prize shortlisted poet Jake Mooney.
Following the UFC on Fox 4, Breen and Mooney discuss the seeming decline of Mauricio Rua and consider his family past, grueling wars and the fact that the former UFC light heavyweight champion is still only 30 years old. The two also discuss Lyoto Machida as a foil for Jon Jones, how a rubber match with Rua would unfold, and how Machida has shed his rep as a boring fighter in favor of that of a bonafide knockout artist.
The two also discuss the best ways to watch MMA events, the experience of watching UFC events with Buddhist monks, MMA fan behavior and poor MMA literature.
