Matt Lindland was on an HDNet Fights broadcast recently and told the interviewer that he’s signed on with them.
Yes, the news was delivered via someone mailing Kevin, and it’s apparently repeated news from an HDNet broadcast. But you know how it is with MMA news: it’s not really news until it’s on the web. Then the person who put it up first gets bragging rights. So how the hell did MMA Junkie, Five Ounces, Bloody Elbow, et all miss this news? Just last week I spent a good page or two worth of writing lambasting the mainstream MMA media for never being the first to report anything, and now Kevin Iole of all people breaks this Lindland shit.
Of course, the other possibility is that Kevin Iole printed this without fact checking it and he’s wrong. Anyone know for sure?
