Awesome... good for them.

Honestly, while they are going up against the next to impossible to overcome UFC - with Trump and now De La Hoya backing you (Affliction) up... I'm sure there's some big pull that evens the score a little..

#1 in journalism?! I dont think so.

Thanks for keeping the average person informed.
