Whizzered is an email newsletter covering the fight industry in a way nobody else will, or can.

We are an independent business that does not rely on or want access to MMA promotions or fighters, which means we can write the things about this sport that nobody else will. We will shine a light on the things promoters would rather stay hidden. And we’ll write the things everyone in media secretly knows, but never report for fear of losing their livelihood.

We have a free email list; you will receive plenty of our stories if you only want to be a free member. But if you want to support the work we are doing here, you can become a Whizzered supporter. The price is $60 a year or $6 monthly.

As a supporter, you’ll get stories we publish solely for supporters, complete access to the archives and direct access to me via email and my cell phone.

We are also developing some cool new stuff for 2020 and beyond that will be exclusive to supporters. Plus, you’ll be directly helping produce independent content that is unlike anything else in mixed martial arts.

We Don’t Do This Stuff:

  • We won’t trick you with headlines that say UFC 242 Full Fight Video Highlights, which is a total asshole move.

  • We won’t make fight predictions. We are bad at them. Everyone is bad at them.

  • We don’t air press conferences or weigh-ins because they are stupid and also because they are viewed by four people.

  • We won’t overwhelm you with an endless stream of cookie-cutter content just so we can embed a video and earn a few pre-roll bucks.

  • We don’t spam or beg for your subscription money. We want you to support us because you want to help us move forward.

We Do This Stuff:

  • We write stories because they are important, not because people will click on the headline.

  • We write about things the media refuses to touch for fear of losing their livelihood.

  • We write without fear of reprisal or loss of access. We write about uncomfortable thing and anger powerful people.

  • We use the tools of journalism and not of speculation.

  • Most importantly, we will fail from time to time, and we will learn and grow and do better.

Here are a few stories we’ve published.
