    Eric Holden, you might remember the name from a couple years ago when the creeper was outed by Stephanie Skinner and Cassie Robb(two lezbo wmma fighters) for sending some inappropriate texts. He's responsible for gems such as

    "ur kissy pics give me a boner"
    "Invicta rly got me obsessed, just cuz there's a lot of talent there, and I also love hot babes"

    He comes off as a mentally retarded 10 year old during the whole conversation

    To say Eric Holden is obsessed with the women he covers on a routine basis would be an understatement, anyways, the main point of this thread was to point out his latest gem, an article he penned for AXS.com titled,

    UFC's hard-hitting heavyweight Jared Rosholt could be the next Brock Lesnar

    no, this is not an onion article. This is hard hitting journalism from Eric Holden, who apparently gets paid to write this garbage,

    "The Team Takedown-trained superstar has shown off impressive moves in his eight UFC starts, with crisp striking, elegant footwork and unorthodox head movement"

    "A man his size isn't supposed to move the way he does. Let's be real: He's a physical specimen, a once-in-a-lifetime talent who carries himself like a much smaller fighter. Having the speed and precision of a light heavyweight has helped Rosholt become one of the most dangerous threats in the UFC."

    "What might the future hold for Rosholt? Could he be the next Brock Lesnar or Cain Velasquez?"

    Ken-Flo is worse, but to be fair, the bar for "journalism" as a whole is very low today.

    There's a blurring between sports analysts and journalists, so one could say that's he's either I suppose.

    Sound more like a troll for me.
    I mean: "UFC's hard-hitting heavyweight Jared Rosholt could be the next Brock Lesnar".
    He can't be serious.

    Well if there's one thing I know about MMA journalism, it's: No, no he's not.

    And that is in no way a defense of Eric Holden.

    TS obviously missed Danny Acosta's article on Sherdog today. Understandable. Sherdog buried that steaming pile as fast as they possibly could

    No, that one was pretty much spot on. Supporting Trump is possibly the best way to say that you're slobbering yeasty cunt.
