Luke Thomas has taken time from teaching everyone how to make killer chicken wings to sound a warning bell over Yahoo and the UFC’s partnership. I had thought about this angle for a while and then dropped it as being unimportant. After all, can Yahoo get ‘more friendly’ with the UFC than they already are?
Dave Meltzer is gonna be Dave Meltzer no matter who’s paying him. Good or bad, what doesn’t end up on Yahoo will end up in his stupid pro wrestling newsletter. And Kevin Iole is already Dana’s buttboy to such a degree that we depicted him as Dana’s slave in our last comic. So really, how can Yahoo and the UFC teaming up make things any worse? Yahoo is for general fans who want general news. It was never going to be a place for whistleblower news regarding scandals or pay issues or anything else. So crying over the loss of Yahoo as an objective MMA news source is like crying over Burger King closing because of it’s effect on fine dining.
