    at Grantland... IMO this is also the way web articles should be formatted, clean, with good use of incorporated pics, chapters etc...

    It's a detailed look at the Gracies, but note that this is the first sentence:

    "Many years later, as he stood amid a haze of dry ice in a half-full arena in Portland, Oregon, Roger Gracie imagined the afternoon on the Amazon River when his grandfather Carlos Gracie was introduced to Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese judo master who would instruct Carlos and his brothers in the art of throwing a man to the ground, then using leverage to render him helpless and senseless."

    That's long as fuck. And some of it falls into "purple prose" territory and thesaurus abuse.

    Still, better than most of what I see in MMA journalism. And nicely formatted or sure. Plenty of MMA journalism websites don't even spell-check the title of the article.
