Hits from the mainstream MMA media (Week 5)
This week we welcome another member to our crew: Larry Vollmer. Vollmer pens the "Inside the Octagon" blog for The Journal News in New York's Lower Hudson Valley. He joins Carlos Arias (OC Register), Steve Sievert (Houston Chronicle), David Avila (MSNBC.com), and me. Vollmer is a Web programmer by day and a practicing mixed martial artist by night.
Here are this week's hits:
-- David Avila, MSNBC.com: TV offers recognition, fame, wealth to fighters
-- Larry Vollmer, The Journal News: My slightly biased prediction of the Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar fight and EliteXC scraps Gary Turner from 'Street Certified' card
-- Carlos Arias, OC Register: Dude, brother and celebrity gladiators
-- Steve Sievert, Houston Chronicle: Nogueira makes history, Mir exposes Lesnar at UFC 81 and VIDEO: Chuck Norris on Bruce Lee, MMA involvement
