My name is Jack Slack and I'm a passionate English writer and analyst of combat sports. Formerly of Bloody Elbow, I now write for Bleacher Report and my own blog, www.FightsGoneBy.com.
I have had the great pleasure of performing analytical work for several elite fighters and a couple of coaches but am truly only focused on getting a suitable level of analysis into the mainstream MMA media.
Great work mate. And thanks for referencing the great fighters of the 40s and 50s in your articles. People tend to forget that boxing was around prior to Muhammad Ali
WOOT! Jack you rule! Too bad the fights this weekend were lackluster... Not much to say methinks other than an article titled "Why you dont want to get tired out fast like Roy Nelson"
I might get around to Schlemenko when I get back from holiday. Keep it down for a while =P
@Wong Then just ignore and don't reply. I think you are one of those guys who think he is a member of the "Internet Police" who dictates what other people can write or not LOL.
I don't see how not wanting to see every article spammed by 2 guys makes us keyboard warriors? I'm not bagging Schlemenko, I think every fighter that gets in the cage deserves our respect be they amateur or professional. If there was an ignore function on BR I would have pushed it a long time ago but seeing as there isn't all I can do is tell you stop.
@Bob brown another great keyboard warrior. Keep fighting!
Nobody has a problem with Shlemenko, they have a problem with you - Jack heard you, knock it off already
@John St-John Lol No I don't have a problem with Schelmenko at all and before you got get your jimmies all rustled you will see that I never called him a nobody. I just feel that Jack Slack can only write so many articles and that he does a good job of picking the fighters that are relevant. Schlemenko unfortunately isn't one of them and I think the fight with Hector Lombard shows that.
Will you be doing a break down of Anthony Pettis or the Korean Zombie?
@Wong You got a problem with Slemenko ? If you can fight at his level than you can say that he is nobody. Until then, you are just a keyboard warrior who would get KO by Schlemennko spinning shit.
