CBS Sportsline columnist rips MMA
CBS Sportsline's Mike Freeman desperately needs readers, which is why he wrote this article comparing boxing and MMA:
This is one of the most inane articles about mixed martial arts you will read today. It is amazing to me that the editors at CBS Sportsline allowed this piece to be published because it is baseless and factually incorrect on multiple points.
It is one thing to debate the merits of boxing and MMA on an educated level. Freeman's article does not come close to doing this.
My hunch is that no one is reading Freeman's boxing articles so he included whatever he knew about UFC in his article (which is clearly very little) to make the article more newsworthy and to attract readers. And to a certain degree, he succeeded -- after all I'm bringing him more readers by posting the link on my blog.
However, in the process, Freeman has exposed himself as ignorant of the facts. In the end, he is the Ultimate Farcical Clown.
