Greatest MMA Website Of All Time Just Vanished?

it looks like fightsport has finally died.
fightsport was, for many years, the only mma site worth reading. they consistantly broke stories days before anyone else. their journalistic integrity was beyond compare. their rankings were solid. they killed zuffa and doesnt afraid of anything. most importantly, they were funny as shit.
in the past few years, fightsport was reduced to a handful of posters on one message board. a shadow of its former glory. the news page and rankings hadnt been updated in ages. it didnt look good, but for some reason you just assumed it would soldier on.
sadly, fightsport is now a blank white page with an error message. gone are the great exposes that struck fear into the crooks. gone are the classic message board battles between mma insiders.
will fightsport rise like phoenix from the ashes and reclaim its title of “king of mma websites”? is this just another troll job from the evil geniuses behind fightsport? we can hope, but its doubtful.

I’m actually quite surprised that death didn’t happen here. For a while early last year it seemed to go in that direction.January 5, 2011 at 5:46 pm #108890
this place is just another week long drug binge away from the white page of death as wellJanuary 5, 2011 at 5:56 pm #108893
Shit. If I type in “fight” in my browser’s address bar, Fightsport appears higher up than Fightlinker. Even though the site had basically been reduced to forum for jew bashing and 9-11 conspiracy theories it could still occasionally be very entertaining to read. Back in the old days in was my favorite MMA site, bar none.January 5, 2011 at 6:51 pm #108903
Yeah surprised this took so long. I didn’t think Fightsport had been updated since I started blogging. RIP, always sad to see the good sites go, especially since so many bland ones manage to survive and prosper.January 5, 2011 at 7:06 pm #108909
Ryan–>why are you taking a stab @ Fightlinker? The guy running it has been doing a little better lately. Even though they borked the “myforums” tab, the “myforums” URL is a decent band-aid.January 5, 2011 at 9:19 pm #108934
I deserve to be stabbed. I’m one of the worst webmasters ever :-pJanuary 5, 2011 at 9:34 pm #108940

By stabbed to you mean poked in the rectum?January 6, 2011 at 12:56 am #108981
I know no one will believe it, but but when I’m not popping in to check on spam every coupla hours, I’m too busy right now to work on the Latest Comments block. I’ve got two projects right now taking up all my personal time whenever I’m not sick on ABs (not now, knock on wood) that’ll run for the next three weeks.
Until then I’m the worst webmaster’s IT guy in history.January 6, 2011 at 5:09 am #109021

I realized I am a hipster this morning when saw a Prius & started daydreaming about my next car (which will either be a hybrid, EV or use Flex Fuel @ least).
