    That just indicates that Yahoo has the go-to franchise for the worldwide demimonde that follows MMA. A paper sending a dozen people to an MMA card wouldn't change Yahoo's clicks appreciably.

    for anyone of the MMA folks on here, i never said it shouldn't have been covered or at least advanced by the SFC, i just wondered if historical was an apropos term. I'm not sure in 50 years anyone will look back on the first UFC event in Boston and say, wow, that was a turning point in boston sports.
    And to compare the weekly ufc event to the super bowl, which happens once a year is pretty laughable.

    A paper sending a dozen people to a 49ers game wouldn't change Yahoo's clicks appreciably, either.

    The point is, the heirarchy of a story on Yahoo's hits list has nothing to do with how you should play something at your local rag.

    But the point is also "don't let a website's hit count intimidate you into not covering something". Because if we play that game, then everything about high school sports should be abandoned because people can read about it on major sports sites.

    Um, I don't think Red Boiling Springs-McMinnville will be on Yahoo anytime soon. Anyhoo, I wasn't saying Yahoo hits would intimidate somebody. The original post was surely made to indicate that so many people are looking at it on Yahoo that your paper better bow.

    People have been predicting great things for Cain Velasquez since before he even had a professional fight. Last night those predictions became a reality when he smashed Brock Lesnar in order to become the UFC heavyweight champion.

    Cain and Brock?

    Good thing MMA exists. Otherwise, these dudes would have had to be porn stars.

    But did the Chronicle cover it?

    Lesnar's last couple of years, from that post-match tirade to his mysterious "illness" and now to this very curious result, is doing no favors for anyone who wants people to believe this isn't just more WWF shit.

    There was nothing "mysterious" about Lesnar's illness. They kept his diverticulitis under wraps for a short time because he was doing badly. He lost, according to some reports, as much as 70 pounds and was near death.
