    I only browse sherdog after opening a delicious bud light, if I'm not in a bud mood I will reach for a nutritious monster energy drink.

    It's not a matter of opinion, what the fuck you even talking about?

    If video game and movie studios pay employees do that shit (having a presence online, influencing video game/movie fans, giving the movie/game positive reviews, giving the company a good image, etc.) you can be sure the UFC does the same!

    hhnnoooo! That unpossble. Also, every single time this thread gets remade, a shitload of people make jokes about being shills. Some of them probably are - the rest are highly unoriginal (natural symptom of Sherdoggery)

    The shills mainly try to hype up fighters. I remember the ufc northcutt shills a couple weeks before he was signed with the random threads. I thought that was odd and then he gets signed out of nowhere.

    I haven't read the whole thread.

    But yes, at least in the past there were paid posters. There were accounts that only started threads about fights no one was talking about. Something like this:

    "Hey guys. Seems like no one is talking about the upcoming fight between fighter X and fighter Y. These guys are great prospects. Fighter X is a blah blah blah with a blah blah and fighter Y is a blah blah. Should be a great fight. What do you guys think?"

    And the TS would never comment further in the thread. Just start threads about random fights.

    I've been accused, at least once, of being a UFC shill promoting their women's divisions on this forum.
    If anyone in UFC management is reading this, I'll say it again: I'd be delighted to have that job. Please consider paying me.

    They don't pay the fighters properly, but would pay for some troll to sit on his fat ass and post on internet forums?

    I guess it's possible.

    Yes. I get paid $0.10/post and a portion of the advertising on the page I post on. Likes garner me and extra dime each.
