    at least we can thank for trying to make our great canadian MMA upcomer mike ricci look like a disappointment. Headliner= “how did ricci do?” First line paragraph one , he got knocked out.
    He deserves a bit more respect than that, everyone loses sometimes he’ll come back stronger than ever.
    Keep your head up ricci, this is only the beginning man

  2. The reason for the headline was to draw attention to the fact that Ricci fought tonight without giving a spoiler for people who want to watch the fight on The Score tomorrow. Unfortunately he got knocked out and it is disappointing. It happens and he will be back.

    As for our coverage of Ricci, I spent the past week in Montreal trying to get an interview with Ricci but could not hook it up. He’s Canadian and Top MMA News thinks he is fantastic.

    Still, there could be a lot of better titles to say hes fighting without giving away the result

    Nothing wrong with the title. Honestly I was wondering How’d Mike Ricci do. Too bad he lost, I’m sure he’ll rebound well. Real good prospect.

    wow not saying anything about a spoiler.
    you guys are writers and you cant get what me and the first poster are getting at?

    I mean, you guys could have chosen many many other titles to draw attention to the fact that Ricci fought. ie= Bellator results?
    Instead you guys know the result, and come up with the stupidest and kinda insulting title by building up that he fought on a huge show and then oh yeah he got KO’d.
    all who follow it know he was fighting.
    this is beyond stupid now and if you dont get what im saying and wana keep defending your mistake and cant see how it was stupid then great. just try and take criticism a little better

  12. We truly appreciate all comments, good or bad.

    We’d be upset if nobody commented.

    Thanks to everybody.

    I dont’ see the big deal with the title.

    Either way, when we put results in the title half the people are upset, and when we don’t we upset people.

    As long as the people are always coming back to the site, it’s all good though.

    Hopefully our title next week will read See how fast Romero wins!
