So it’s official. Sherdog is now providing MMA content for ESPN’s website. I figured this was going to be announced soon … with the swarms of locusts and bloody rivers, this is yet another sign that the end of days is at hand. Now I have to decide if I should find a guest blogger for when the Rapture hits. I guess when it happens I’ll go up to Heaven and those left behind can just read Sherdog’s coverage through ESPN. Hell on Earth indeed.
Not discussed anywhere else is what the UFC thinks of all this. To make a long story short, Sherdog is kinda like that crazy chick the UFC slept with a few times but then crushed. There’s not a lot of bias on the site, but when listening to Sherdog’s radio shows you definitely get to hear a lot of UFC bashing and specific bashing of Dana White. Considering Zuffa likes it’s news coverage sycophantic and ass-licking (soft, light, along the grain, perhaps even a little bit of finger), I imagine they’re none too pleased that Sherdog cracked ESPN before they had a chance to install their own press regime.
