It has been a while since I have penned (or typed) an article for this forum.

I would like to say it is due to a hurricane of endeavors that have landed at my doorstep.

However, it is more accurate to say that the demons of laziness and contentment have entranced me recently.

One thing that has slowly been niggling at my wits and forcing the pen into my hand for some opinion venting is the horrible bias the Yahoo’s UFC page has been displaying.

My first gripe is that the sport is MMA, not UFC… (Something Yahoos MMA page hasn’t come to grips with) it’s a little thing but it seems to point to the root of the favoritism problem.

I have read various articles from their writers, all of them very UFC biased.

One of their main writers talks regularly about hobnobbing with Dana White. Is this really the kind of activity you would want from a writer from whom one seeks a balanced opinion from?

They tear into Fedor, ignore great cards from the UFC’s competitors (look at the entire Strikeforce card that is coming up, as a whole it beats most UFC PPV’s for quality) and now they are trying to convince the world that the Rua/ Machida fight was too close to call.

It is all fairly laughable and very sad at the same time.
