Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by MMA Junkie editor-in-chief and USA Today senior MMA editor Dann Stupp.
With June drawing to a close, Breen and Stupp discuss the half-year-in-review through six months of 2013, examining the biggest stories and themes on the year thus far, from testosterone replacement therapy and Fallon Fox to spinning hook kicks and fighter pay. The two look at how the dominant themes in MMA this year differ from years past, what they say about the evolution of the sport and how they have moved the needle with mainstream audiences.
Breen and Stupp also review the year's superlatives so far, weighing in on their favorite knockouts, submissions and upsets of 2013, as well as who deserves to be the “Fighter of the Half Year.”
