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 MMAFighting.com's Michael David Smith.
Breen and Smith discuss the recent changes in the sports media landscape, chiefly the decisions of many major outlets to scale back their coverage of niche sports, including MMA. Breen and MDS delve into what it means for MMA, the new challenges it presents and possible impediments to MMA's growth in North America in this media climate.
The duo also tackle how this landscape could create new possibilities in different international markets for the UFC, the potential for the UFC's deal with Fox going forward, the current roles of Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta within the company and even which Super Bowl team best represents the sport of MMA.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
