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 welcomes MMAJunkie lead staff reporter John Morgan to “Press Row.”
Breen and Morgan explore the extent to which MMA is part of the “hurt business,” examining fighters stories from the past weekend ranging from unfortunate to tragic. The pair examine the perhaps unjust loss of Frankie Edgar, the criminal antics of Jason Miller and the untimely passing of South Carolinan amateur fighter Tyrone Mims and what these stories mean for the sport.
The two also delve into whether it’s possible to have a statistical metric for lost earning potential in MMA, the hijinks of War Machine, how MMA breeds sociopathy and why prizefights are the brass ring for middle-aged “weekend warriors.”
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
