Just wanted to do a quick post to thank Mr. Snowden for all his many contributions to Bloody Elbow and MMA Nation over the past however many years it's been.
At his best Snowden is one of the most knowledgeable and most passionate writers covering MMA. He's also one of the fastest and smoothest writers I've ever worked with. The dude can spit out a story fast and it'll be topical, accurate and very well written.
I can definitely say I learned more from working with Jon than I have with any other writer. Some of the lessons were hard ones but they were all needed.
Let's take a moment to remember Snowden's best work and wish him the best in all his future endeavors. I look forward to following his work. He's got a couple books coming out next year that I look forward to reading very much and I'm sure he'll continue to be uniquely compelling as long as he chooses to write about MMA.
Warning: This isn't the place to bash Snowden. The ban hammer is thirsty. Tread lightly or go away.
