It’s a proud moment here at MMAFrenzy.com as we were pleased to find our website quoted in a recent article by the New York Times. The article “Ending in Main Event Raises Fansâ€™ Suspicions“, focused on Saturday’s landmark, albeit controversial, EliteXC “Primetime” event which aired on CBS.
Here’s an excerpt from the article quoting MMAFrenzy.com contibutor Eric Shapiro:
Eric Shapiro, a blogger on mmafrenzy.com, suggested that the referee might have been instructed to step in before anything â€œtoo gory or morally horrifying could happen,â€ to protect the sensibilities of a new audience. But Shaw said Miragliotta had been under no such orders. Lembo said the primary interest was to protect the fighters.
â€œIf it lasted two more punches,â€ he said, â€œI might have been here defending the decision to let it go long enough for one of the fighters to get hurt.â€
