    After reading Ben Askren’s AMA thread on r/MMA, it got me wondering why many professional fighters love to post on Reddit and are not shy to reveal their identity.

    Sherdog is one of the oldest and largest active forum and it has massive resources so every fighters know what Sherdog is but why won’t they post in here?

    This too small, too high body fat percentage and UFC doesn't pay enough to meet the minimum 200k salary requirement for most fighters either.

    Bigger audience and a lower ratio of poster to assholes.

    Ask Kalib Starnes why, I'm sure he'll know.

    Anyway, I'm not really bothered about pros posting if we're expected to suck them off and tell them how great they are all the time, but I was talking to Ronald Jhun on here the other day and it was a nice normal conversation without him expecting special treatment so that was cool. Solomon Hutcherson posts here too, but again doesn't expect special treatments, so you wouldn't know he was here mostly.

    There used to be a few back in the day but sherdog community was toxic to them.

    I remember Larkin asked some questions on here and some of them were complete shit. Reddit has less trolls and many people already use it
