I have been holding this one back for a couple weeks, but it is now official. UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre has joined Yardbarker. He will blog exclusively there and keep his fans up to date on every thing going on in his life. When Yardbarker first asked me to join their network, I was hesitent. They did not boast the best collection of MMA sites and their only fighter of significance who was blogging was Frank Shamrock. It seemed like Yardbarker did not care about Mixed Martial Arts enough for me to want to join.
An email exchange I had with the Yardbarker worker who recruited me changed my mind. He took my criticisms and agreed they had done a bad job with MMA, but he also made me believe they wanted to change things. He also mentioned they signed Georges St-Pierre and he would be blogging for them very soon. At that point I knew Yardbarker was being honest about their committment to Mixed Martial Arts and MMA fans.
From the look of GSP's first post, he seems serious about giving fans interesting things about his life to read.
(This doesn't mean I won't make fun of GSP any more. In fact, I might have to do it more than usual, so people don't think I sold out.)
