Robin Black give personal insight to 'Gossip MMA Media' and how they are ruining the sport
As I watch the gossip monger hold his microphone in front of a famous entertainer while hanging on every word in "anticipation" of his UFC debut (despite the fact that the famous entertainer has never sparred), I wonder how we got here. Mixed Martial Arts is such a beautiful sport. It pits the greatest athletes against each other in poetic mortal combat. It is the greatest sport on planet Earth. It is simple yet complex, violent yet elegant, terrifying yet inspiring. How did we get to the point that spectacle is more important than this incredible sport and art? I honestly blame the "journalists".
