The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

I think MiddleEasy reader, Juice Lee, said it best in the comment section this week. When we used to run the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill on a weekly basis, you lunatics would republish every item on your message board or website of choice claiming we're 'reporting' these items as fact. On the occasion that one of these items is false or slightly untrue, we would then get negative backlash from the MMA community. Mobs would come after us with pitchforks in hand, ready to torch our office down with handcrafted Molotov cocktails -- and through all of this we would just stand there with a 'WTF' look on our face. That's why we stopped doing the rumor mill for a while. You guys can't have anything nice. If Jesus Christ returned to Earth, MiddleEasy readers would ridicule him for wearing leather sandals in the year 2013 and kill him again.

However, it's Sunday which means another Sunday Morning Rumor Mill is upon us. Enjoy.

.On Friday at some point before, during, or after the UFC on FOX 8 weigh-ins, Melvin Guillard started have a verbal shouting match with UFC's Burt Watson. Melvin Guillard called Burt Watson an 'asshole' for something he did earlier in the day. Watson held his ground and verbally defended himself. Apparently the entire ordeal was so intense that it became pretty uncomfortable for everyone in the vicinity.

.People have been accusing MMA World Series of Fighting for buying YouTube views, Facebook likes, and Twitter followers. As of today, @MMAWorldSeries has 96,663 followers, nearly 20,000 more than @BellatorMMA. Ray Sefo also has 66,102 followers, far more than CEO of Bellator, Bjorn Rebney.

.A new MMA promotion is coming to Singapore and they are slated to have their first event before the end of 2013.

.More than a handful of ONE FC fighters have expressed their disappointment with the pay structure within ONE FC. In short, they believe that it's simply not enough.

.Starting with UFC 162, a bug was brought to my attention that enables a person to view UFC.tv without the need to pay for the subscription service. Apparently the person that discovered this bug alerted UFC and Neulion, the providers of the technology, but both companies have not responded. As of 1:40 pm PST, this bug is still active. Judging from the two emails I received this morning, it appears that people are starting to learn about this exploit. Any instructions on how to do the UFC.TV exploit in the comment section will be deleted. Look, we know you know how to do it. Don't go flaunting it around on MiddleEasy. Do it elsewhere.

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.
