UFC 120 KO Of The Night


This story was written by Yahoo! Sports MMA writer Steve Cofield under his blog, Cagewriter. The topic for this post is the result of a fight between Dan Hardy of U.K. and Carlos Condit of the United States at UFC 120 in London this past Saturday night. Hardy, a well-known striker and trash-talker, wa,s suprisingly, knocked out by Condit with 47 seconds left in the first round. Condit’s spectacular striking earned him the customary Knockout of the Night honor.

Blogging is key to fans of MMA because coverage of the sport is so minimal from mainstream sources that blogging writers are often the first way many fans find out about the results of a fight. With all main UFC events broadcast only on pay-per-view at a cost of $50 bucks a pop, its not the most affordable sport to keep abreast of, so having guys like Cofield is key because they are posting articles very soon after the fights. His articles include vivid recounts of what types of strikes/moves were landed, what time in the fight things happened, etc. that really help to at least give a rough sketch of the action. Online blogs are definitely an essential component in the coverage of this still-blossoming sport.

About Ryan Buckley

I am a senior journalism student at the UO and am dreading graduation at the end of this year. I was born in New Jersey but spent most of my life in California. I am the oldest of three kids and I enjoy reading, doing anything exercise-related and watching corny horror movies. Ideally I would like to be involved in sports media in some capacity when I get into the professional world.
