Like MMA itself, Bloody Elbow is growing at a brisk pace. With the UFC choosing to run 5602 events in 2014, Overlord Nate and Praetor Brent decided it was time to add another staff member to the fold to help out with whatever was necessary - news grinding, interviews, making sure Chris Hall wasn't trying to bite his own ear again, that sort of thing. So we went out and got someone that we feel is the best fit possible - Karim Zidan.
You might know Karim from his site The Flying Knee MMA, or from Twitter (@ZidanSports). I have personally been a fan of his writing for a while now and he certainly knows his stuff, so he should fight in very well around here. Plus, he's Canadian. I was the only Canadian left on the site for a long time after Nick Thomas left (though Mookie Alexander and Matt Bishop could be classified as honorary Canadians), so it's always good to have a little backup against you heathens from lesser North America.
Seriously though, we're very happy to have Karim on board and I'd appreciate it if you'd give him a warm welcome. As for the rest of us, you will continue to get the best balance of news, opinion, interviews, event coverage, and whatever the hell Mookie writes about here at BE for a long time to come.
Also, if you have too much spare time on your hands and you're interested in being a news grinder, we might be looking for another one in the next little while. Shoot me an email to the address in my profile if you're interested. And no pics in the emails this time please. That was just weird.
