The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

It may not be morning for wherever you inhabit, but in Hawaii it’s still Sunday morning — which technically means this Sunday Morning Rumor Mill is right on time. As with all SMRMs we cull the internet and our sources in the MMA industry for the most interesting rumors, and then publish them on MiddleEasy. We are standing by the statement that these items are rumors, not verified fact. We’re not necessarily reporting anything. Not at all. Just sharing the variety of rumors we’ve heard from behind the scenes regarding the sport you all love. So without further ado, enjoy the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.
