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 FightOpinion.com founder Zach Arnold.
After past discussion of the political scandal and overhaul within the California State Athletic Commission, Breen and Arnold go in-depth on the recent dealings and misdeeds of Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation. The pair discuss the departure of former executive Tom Molloy, what led to his dismissal, how Molloy's boxing background and favorite officials have continued to taint Florida's prizefighting product and the shocking shortcuts that have been taken by the office at the expense of fighters' health and safety.
Breen and Arnold also reflect on particularly shocking cases of the Florida office's negligence, including the ongoing Fallon Fox brouhaha, Valentijn Overeem falling out of a ring, how Kimbo Slice wound up facing Seth Petruzelli and more.
