MMA writer Doyle wrong again!




The fans main objections to the Sonnen titlle shot were validated by the fight result.

The main objections were:

1) Sonnen didn't deserve a title shot.

2) The fight wouldn't be competitive.

3) Carnival style fights like this one, degrade the belt and do nothing to advance the legitimacy of the sport.

Yet Doyle is so out of touch, he actually gloats that the fight result proves him right! The question is not whether the fight would "ruin" the sport, but rather, what does it do to advance it's legitimacy?

Have you ever wondered why nearly all major newspapers across the country don't report on MMA as a legitimate sport?

Look no further than pro-wrestling type fans and sportswriters like Dave Doyle who support and promote nonsense fights like Sonnen - Jones. >
