I just want to take the opportunity to quickly thank all of you and everyone behind the scenes who allow us to do what we do, which is scouring the Web, delivering exclusive content and breaking news frequently all in one convenient location.
If you haven’t noticed, we also like to have a little fun along the way. It makes all those late nights, early mornings and long days (even holidays) worth every ounce of energy we put into this online mixed martial arts machine.
We never take ourselves too seriously. And I think that resonates with most of you — this is all about discussing a great sport within in a tight-knit community of knowledgeable (sans the handful of inevitable trolls) and hardcore fans.
The best part is we’ve just scratched the surface.
We've always had a great relationship with Mania and look forward to working with them. We are a different site in many respects, but we compliment each other and know they fill an absolutely critical role in the MMA media. And we should be so lucky to ever achieve their traffic levels (they are the largest site in the entire SB Nation network). We applaud them for all their success and wish them nothing but more of the same in the coming months and years. Congratulations, gents. It's quite an achievement.
