    For a published article, I'd stay away from "Who's" and just type out "Who is".

    But I'm no English major.

    decent article goose. a lil more punctuation and proofing next time, but a solid debut. as far as the subject matter, i hope melvin wrecks danzig. never liked that guy much, and melvin is fun to watch when hes coming out on top.

    Well done. Soon enough you'll be writing articles about tweets!!!

    Really enjoyed it, man. Congrats on the rise to fame! The only item that jumps at me is that it lacks the classic "inverted pyramid" of reporting. It'd be great to start with the tension of a fighter standing on a precipice and then step back to see how he got there.

    Looking forward to your next article.

    Thanks guys, next piece for sports net will probably be a piece on Ian McCall and I should have a piece on Jorge Masvidal out on MMAratings this week.

    I enjoyed the article. Why do you suppose the blackzillian camp did not work for him? Seems like the camp is turning the corner now. Was it him or the camp? I guess I am asking b/c it sounds like the blame is on the camp and not Melvin, which were you stating? Like I said I liked the article. Keep rocking it.

    I think the blame is on both, Melvin needs support and thrives under it and it seems like the Blackzillians weren't structured enough for him.
