Fans Interview Fighters needs your help.
I couldn't be happier with first 5 interviews in the series. I feel that we are asking a lot of good questions and getting some great responses, and I couldn't be more pleased with the help you are all providing and the direction the series is taking. The problem is we are missing out on numerous fighters a lot of which are bigger names. I don't want to mention specific fighters but I have had multiple requests to do this over the phone, (I am doing all of these online) and simply do not have a way to record a phone interview. I am reaching out to you the mmamania community to get on board with me and shoulder the load of the phone interviews. I can not stress enough how thrilled we all would have been to interview some of these fighters that I have had to turn down. I have literally lost sleep over a few of them. All you need is a recording device to record a conversation over the phone, or the ability to type fast enough to transcribe the interview as it happens. I will still set up the interviews and gather the questions, but I need you to record and transcribe the final interview. You can e-mail it to me to make the final post, or post the interview yourself, whichever you prefer. You can also actively search for new fighters to interview or leave that up to me, your call.
I would prefer a regular that we can trust to deliver, but I am open to any and all help. Please post a comment if interested or if you have any questions or idea's.
Also big thanks to those of you who have been submitting questions on a regular basis, you know who you are and you have my sincere gratitude, you have made this series what it is and I couldn't do this without your help. FYI I have decided to make these mmamania exclusives from now on, I didn't receive any questions from any other site on the last interview so let's keep this FUBU. There was some discussion about changing the name but after discussing this with the powers that be we feel it's best to leave the name as is.
