To all the “long-time MMA HQ crew”, I just wanted to say welcome to the new MMAHQ.net.
BV approached me about starting a new site after voicing some displeasure about what our original MMA HQ had turned into and how the new staff had been treating a lot of the long-time readers of the site.
I’ve followed MMA HQ from a distance since the sale, and have to admit I’ve been quite disappointed on the direction the site headed. When BV, approached me about starting a new site that would be run and managed by the users, I thought it was a great idea.
The success of the new MMAHQ.net will be solely in your hands. BV has taken the early reigns and will be driving most of the initial content on the site. I’m simply providing the technical side of things with server hosting and some of the other technical and software details. The same lack of time that prompted me to sell the original MMA HQ will most likely keep me from contributing a lot to the content side of things here on MMAHQ.net.
When I have the time, I probably pop up every now and then with some posts, but my contributions here will mostly be as a reader and commenter like most of you have been. That means that the what this new site turns into is truly up to you, the readers. If you want to make the site a solid site, then let either BV of myself know and we’ll gladly create an account for you to start posting news updates, articles, editorials, videos, etc… yourself.
Just wanted to pop in and say I hope we all can reclaim the site and community we once had.
