Great news for mixed martial arts (MMA) fans.
SB Nation Chairman and CEO Jim Bankoff made the announcement on today's edition of The MMA Hour.
"SB Nation, unlike a lot of other sports sites, from the beginning, put our emphasis on coverage of MMA. We have a lot of big sites in our portfolio like MMA Mania and Bloody Elbow. Those sites will continue to exist as they do exist now and its not really our plan to merge those sites whatsoever."
While it's impossible to say this without drawing a humorous comparison to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), you can expect it to be "business as usual" around these parts.
What does that mean, exactly?
It means that fans of MMAFighting.com, MMAmania.com and BloodyElbow.com, will continue to enjoy all the industry news and coverage they've grown accustomed to at the same location. Same bat time, same bat channel.
We'll just be doing it under the same umbrella.
Three awesome MMA sites for the price of none. How can you beat that? You can't, which is why you come here in the first place, because every year we get better.
Just wait until you see what we pull off in 2012.
