I was pretty excited to see that the prestigious Financial Times had a feature article on UFC 100. The text itself is fine enough:

Last Saturday’s event is expected to have generated more than 1.3m pay-per-view sales, with each buyer paying $44.95 to watch three tightly contested bouts. It was broadcast live or nearly live in 70 countries.

a HUGE glaring error would be like when that German boxing writer claimed UFC fights end in maiming or death.

Captioning a picture with the wrong names is more of a minor error. I can live with it.

LOL

I still can't get over how any fan of MMA can mistake Bisping for Bisbing. That's like calling the Star Wars character Hans Solo. lol

When I first saw the article I immediately thought that the error printed was that Bisping won his fight.
