I don't care if it's true or not and I support blogs as I have a fairly successful one myself but to repeat it as gospel on here and other places is irresponsible.

Actually, that is how a lot of we find out about a lot of News two-three days before major sites get a hold of it then claim a "Source" told them about it "Exclusively". Some are bullshit, some are legit, but that's how we find out who is real and who is just making shit up (which also happens a lot). While a lot of big sites blast small blogs, you have no idea how many of them take news off of their sites and run it as "Exclusives" and never give the original site credit. I always try to be honest, if I say I have not heard it from other sources it's pretty much take it for what it's worth. If the Rumor turns out to be true I am always honest and kill the rumor (Overeem vs Lashley) in an update. If another site confirms the bout then I will add them in as a source in another update. This one was a bit weird, Johnson denied it and minutes later MMAFighting confirmed the bout again.

I am not a big fan of either of them, but both are good fighters. This could be a good fight if they both make weight. If they don't then this won't be a fair fight, as Johnson will really be too big for Hardy. I used to like Johnson until he missed making weight multiple times. I don't understand why he is being allowed to fight at 170 anymore. Hardy should refuse to fight him if he doesn't make weight. I think Johnson would do just fine at 185, so I don't get his reasoning here.
