    Ninja is a boring nerd. No idea how he's become as big as he is.

    He is entitled to cover whatever he wants to in life.

    He gets hated on by a good portion of MMA "fans" so he really should just do whatever makes him happy.

    If it means covering something's other than MMA, then so be it. It's his life and career, not Sherdogger's.

    He'll never cover the major sports. He'll be relegated to niche sports like "Gaming"

    I like some games, but I'm never going to watch someone else play a game. I don't understand how that's a thing

    Not sure if you had an older brother but when i was a kid i loved watching the older bro play games. Clearly much better than i at the time. Maybe these kids feel the same way

    I'll watch a vid every once in a while of gameplay if I'm not sure about a game I may purchase, but I really have no interest in watching other people do things I could do.

    And no I dont find having an 8 million to 1 kd rate impressive.

    Kids. If you don't understand how something or someone on the internet is so popular, the answer is always kids.

    Its a case of a kid being really good at what he does that makes him the most popular. Completely different to how other "legitimate" sports, where their best professionals aint anywhere near the top in terms of popularity. I dont watch the kid, but I did see a video in which he plays with Drake.
