I apologize for the amount of bloggo-centric news, but when there’s so little going on in MMA I tend to turn towards the Days of Our Lives: MMA Website edition for inspiration. We just talked about Josh Gross leaving Sherdog to work for Sports Illustrated, and it looks like another of our fellow parasites (as Dana likes to call us) has been picked up to work there as well. Who? None other than Ben Fowlkes, who also just got on board with Cage Potato too. His GF is a blogger too (aaw, blog buddies!) and she wrote up a supportive entry regarding the new job:
It’s official: Ben is the new (and first ever) mixed martial arts columnist for Sports Illustrated. His first column published today. I can’t tell you how proud I am or how quickly I will spend his paycheck. From here on out, it should publish every Thursday until he is inevitably fired.
You can read Ben’s first column at Sports Illustrated on Mac Danzig here.
