This is a public service announcement:

- Any news story/interview posted without a source is most likely a fake.

- Any news story/interview posted on MMAXclusive.com, latestmmanewsnow.wordpress.com or mmafrenzy.wordpress.com is definately a fake (they do throw in a few real stories to fool people, usually copy & paste from MMAJunkie or another legit site).  These blogs exist for no reason other than to troll UG and Sherdog with made-up stories.

- Any other XXX.wordpress.com site is most likely a fake.  Anyone can create a blog at wordpress.com, it's free and takes minutes to set up.  If a "news" site can't afford a real domain name, it's most likely a fake.

- Any news posted by gangsta101, Squared Circle, The Dutch Rudder, United Cigar, Seamus619, Nucking Futs are fake.

This ends the public service annoucement.

Mods, please do something about folks who intentionally disseminate fake news on this forum.  This place is becoming a joke.

To be fair, gangsta101 also posts real news. He was the trendsetter and always will be the original and the best, but the lackeys have taken it and ruined it, so they need to be kept under control.

 Posting real news is not an excuse for posting fake made up news.

UnitedCigar - I agree. We need to put an end to this tomfoolery. Admittedly i did post a story that turned out to be fake, but i did not know. I was sent the link from a friend (who knows i am a ben saunders fan) and i posted an interview that was supposedly conducted with "the muay thai clinch machine". Unfortunatly the story was not truthful and i caught some heat but really my only crime is being a super-fan. For how long has that been punishable?

 I'll give you the benefit of a doubt since you don't seem to be a part of the gansta101/Squared Circle/xcouturefan circle jerk.... but something smells very fishy here, and it ain't a cigar.

RyannVonDoom - MMAfrenzy is apart of their trolling.

 http://mmafrenzy.com/ is a legit - if little known - site.  mmafrenzy.wordpress.com is NOT.  Not only are they trolling and making up fake stories and interview, they are also dragging the name of a legit site with them.

Yep this place will end up just like Fightsport, a dozen trolls and imps talking shit at each other.  Going down the same road....  Sad, really.
