    Looking For MMA Bloggers

    Post  Sheldan on Fri Jun 24, 2011 12:20 am

    So i'm looking to do Sports Journalism at University, so it helps to have a blog site in the meantime to help give you an edge over others, and i'm trying to get pieces on every sport, and who better to write about MMA then you guys Very Happy . So would anybody be interested in writing some pieces that I could put on the site? I'd credit you for the piece and if you have a Twitter page i'll link it to the site.

    Also, while you guys are here, could you go to the site and click on any advertisements you see, they're usually on the left hand side and right at the bottom of the page, it's through some system the blog sites use called AdSense where advertisers put adverts on the site and by people clicking it I get money for it. The site is called www.sport-junkies.blogspot.com

    Anybody who is interested in writing a few blogs then i'd really appreciate it, so get back to me if you're interested Smile

    I couldnt word things quite so professionally Laughing Or even spell right but I clicked on your adds and read the Nate at 170 article, Good job mate. Hope u make a few quid.

    Got me thinking about Barry vs Kongo, who you backing?

    Cant see Kongo havning the footwork to use the jab on the back foot tactic like you said. He might land a good 1-2 in excahnges where he gets off 1st but I dont see him using a jab on the backfoot, I dont even really see him striking to be honest. I reckon he will be thinking the guy got beat on the ground by a "sort of choke thing" but Mirko Crocop Laughing

    I love Barrys syle, he is one of the most likeable guys but he isnt even verging on top level because of his size and lack of grappling, Kongo isnt rated by us but fight matrix have him 16 and Barry 44. Not always perfect but fairly accurate, id put Barry a 2-1 underdog, Reckon he gets GnP by the 2nd.

    Kongo will push Barry up against cage, hold his shorts and knee him in the balls until he gets a takedown and some Gnp. I see it going same way as Buentello-Kongo fight.

    Anything to do with sport mate, i'm going on holiday on Sunday so if somebody wants to maybe write a review of UFC on Versus 4 then i'd appreciate that, or if you want to do something else then you can do that, you could write a piece on how West Ham will struggle to return to the Premier League Wink

    Yeah that would be great mate, and anything over about 300 words really is fine, can be around 300 or around 1000, just however much you can write.

    Cheers mate Smile

    Anything yeah mate, whatever tickles your fancy. It would be nice to have somebody do a few from a Liverpool perpesctive as most of my mates are either United or City fans, and also if you could do something on any of the sports you mentioned that would be great as well.

    I'm big on most sports, but mainly boxing, mma and tennis.
    I'm thinking I could possibly do articles on UFC on versus/UFC 132 or even an article on a fighter: e.g off the top of my head "Is Jon Jones unbeatable?" tongue or something like that?
    Also, could possibly do a review on Haye/Klitsckho, and a review on Wimbledon when it's over?
    Let me know what you think Very Happy
