I've been a member of Bloody Elbow for years and decided this week that I should see if there are other MMA communities and news sites out there that might appeal to me.
I like the mix of stories and discussions on BE, except for the weird community rules. I'm a member of several online communities that are not related to MMA and I've never seen anything like what happens there (constant bannings, insulting community members by the staff, needless drama, etc.).
So how is MMA Fighting? Seeing Ariel as an editor gives me come confidence. What is the focus of stories and discussions?
Is the community reasonably civil? Does the staff interact with the community in a reasonable way?
