A story on Yahoo Sports UK is eerily similar to one I wrote a couple days ago. They managed to list the same potential bouts I did, which wouldn't be all that odd seeing how I have my information from a reliable UFC source. The thing that makes me suspicious is how they never mention where their information comes from. Mine came from Tatame and a source within the UFC. I am betting their's came from Rear Naked News and a source within the O2 Arena. Especially since Rear Naked News was featured on the front page of Yahoo's US MMA page all weekend. It seems some one in the UK office thought it's ok to take a story from a blog and not credit it. There is a growing pattern of this type of behavior from the supposedly "credible media". They hardly ever cite a blog as a source, but they have no problem taking stories from them, rewording them a bit, and claiming them as their own.
I have emailed Yahoo UK and am awaiting a response I surely will never get. At the bottom of Yahoo UK page, there is a comments section. If you think some thing is suspicious about this, let them know.
Update - Still no response from Yahoo. I have sent two emails. The comments are all messed up. All I can say is keep trying, if you feel strongly about this. A few have gotten them to work, and I thank them for their support. Also, thank you to all the readers who have emailed me. I'm glad others see my side of this and I haven't gone completely paranoid yet.
Since the comments are awful, here is a feedback form where you can tell Yahoo about the situation. The two links to include are:
