If you have a lot of friends on Facebook, some odd MMA stories have been hard to miss in your news feed lately:
•Joe Rogan Kills Mountain Lion Outside Comedy Club
•Ronda Rousey Pregnant, Still Plans to Fight During Pregnancy
•Joe Rogan To Fight In The UFC
UFC president Dana White was recently asked if Joe Rogan really was going to be fighting in the UFC?
"It came from this website that I won’t even mention," said White as transcribed by Thomas Myers for MMAMania. "But I’ll tell you this: that same website said that Ronda Rousey was pregnant and she was going to continue to fight while she was pregnant and I got her pregnant. OKAY?!?!? That’s the website that said that. If you believe that then you’ll believe just about anything."
The tall tales all originated from Empire Sports. Other recent headlines include:

They say that people don't read on the Internet; they certainly don't read the fine print. Empire Sports has a disclaimer link on every page:
Empire Sports is a satirical and entertainment website. Empire Sports uses invented names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized. Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental.
So the next time you see a goofy story from Empire Sports, do the right thing, and prank your stupider friends by adding it to your Facebook page.
