It occurs to me that on several other MMA blogs that some of the athletes themselves dive in & talk with posters. Ben Saunders gets his share of love on BE, so how come Mania gets no love? I think we had the real Vinny Magalhaes for a while, but you fucking guys brutalized him! Maybe rightfully so, dude is kind of a dick but it kind of leaves us without that feather in our cap of counting a world class pro fighter amongst the ranks here on Mania. So here's what I propose...I want to adopt a UFC fighter and I want y'all Maniacs to do it with me! It's taken me a while to pick one out but I think I've got it. I knew I needed to pick someone we could all agree on. Someone you fickle bastards wouldn't tear to shreds if he came up short once or twice. That's why I've decided that we should adopt "THE IMMORTAL" MATT BROWN!! Brown is a humble, hardworking honest fighter and he's been tearing shit up in his 6 fight win streak. I can't think of another fighter that is more universally respected right now and Im sure he'd be a welcome addition to our creepy little corner of the blogosphere. Plus I'm pretty sure he can beat the shit out Ben Saunders. Killa Bee isn't in the right org for us to find out, but Brown has already TKO'd Douglas Lima so we already got shit to sling if we need bragging rights! But here's the rub...you don't get something for nothing in this world, so before I extend this invitation to him I'm wondering if we could sweeten the pot for him? All these fighters have that social media bonus that they're hunting down and I noticed that Mania had something like 8k Twitter followers? So those of you who have not already followed him, we can use you as a gift to entice him...those of you who are already following him, dump him! You can re-up once we can call him, Matt "the Maniac" Brown! So let me know what you guys think. Can we do this? Should we do this? If this goes well, this thread is going to be part of the recruitment. So feel free to weigh in on the subject. Feel free to call me an asshole...whatever..its all Mania!!
