Facebook Updates on your Favorite Fighters!


You gotta love this Facebook phenomenon which has become a culture within a culture. As a journalist covering boxing and MMA and interviewing so many of the athletes, I’ve been fortunate enough to become Facebook “friends” with people like Frank Mir, Terry Norris, Vernon Forrest, Jeremy Horn, Michael “The Count” Bisping, etc. In case you might want to know what’s the latest with these fighters and more, in the wonderful world of Facebook, just continue to read…
