MMA Convert has reached another milestone.
I am pleased to announce that MMAConvert.com has been acquired by Rebellion Media. Rebellion has made a strong push in the MMA media landscape in the past 10 months, acquiring some of the most well-known sites in the space including FightLine, Five Ounces of Pain, Fightlinker and MMA Frenzy. We are extremely proud to join their family of sites and have full confidence that MMA Convert will continue to thrive under their banner.
As some of you have already noticed, we have added two new writers to our team, Dana Becker and Joe LeBeau. Dana and Joe will be producing the majority of the content for the site from this point forward along with additional contributors who will come on board. I’ve been working with them for the past number of weeks getting them up to speed on everything and they will do a great job bringing you your daily dose of mixed martial arts news and analysis.
I will be moving to a management position within Rebellion Media and overseeing the day to day operations of MMAConvert.com as well as other sites within the network. With the added responsibility, there will be a reduction in the amount of writing I will be adding to the site, but will be assisting all the writers with the content creation. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time writing about mixed martial arts and this opportunity allows me to pursue additional career goals that I wish to accomplish. My goal all along was to build a site that MMA fans like myself would enjoy visiting on a daily basis and I feel I’ve accomplished that to the best of my ability. With Rebellion’s resources, the site can now grow and prosper in ways that it couldn’t before.
I would like to give a very special thanks to Ryan Harkness of Fightlinker and Zach Arnold of FightOpinion. They were the first writers in the MMA community to notice us and give us recognition many years ago. I will be forever grateful to them for that. They’re still two of my favorite bloggers and continue to run great sites that I encourage all of you to check out if you haven’t yet. I would also like to thank all the other members of the MMA media that we have worked with over the years. This community is full of so many great people. It was a pleasure working with everyone.
I also want to thank everyone who has contributed to the site over the years including Jim Genia, Jake Berezansky, Mike Moffatt, Zak Woods, Zane Blackman, Mark Dorsey, Greg Monskie, Gary Ward and Adam Baker. I couldn’t have done it without your help.
And most of all, I want to thank all of our great readers for all of your support. MMA Convert wouldn’t exist without you.
I may not be the person who delivers you the news every day, but I’ll still hang out with you guys in the comments and continue to work with the site in my management role.
If you have any questions, I’ll be more than happy to address them as candidly as possible in the comments below.
