Forget about GSP-Hughes III, the announcement that really rocked the MMA world this week* was Ryan Harkness (FightLinker.com) challenging Sam Caplan (fiveouncesofpain.com, proelite.com and cbssports.com) to a REAL MMA fight. No, really he did. And, yes, they are going to fight.
I had heard some rumblings that Ryan was going to challenge Sam before the end of the year and he officially did it earlier this week. Needless to say, I can’t wait to watch these two blogging legends to officially get it on.
FightLinker.com and Fiveouncesofpain.com are, without a doubt, two of the best MMA blogs out there (I would even say they are two of the best blogs period but that might sound like a bit of stretch to someone who hates mixed martial arts). Sure, Ryan talks a big game on his site but give the man credit – he is certainly putting his money where his mouth is by issuing this challenge.
Since JarryPark.com is attempting to establish itself as the leader in combat sports interviews it seemed like a natural fit to talk to Ryan about his challenge, how he plans on training for the fight and when we should expect it to go down. I look forward to having Sam come to The Park and respond.
Who’s going to win the battle of the blogs? Let us know in the comments section.
Ryan Harkness – 11/29/07
*Fine, maybe this challenge didn’t really rock the MMA world but, damn it, I am excited to see two bloggers fight!
