    Any truth to the rumor that Matt Kaplan is simply a compromise between Matt Cava and yourself on opinions, Sam? Congrats to all, and to 5 Oz. as a whole for being part of the Bubba Army and that whole Mcgilicutty. Interesting to note Hulk Hogan will now be getting his MMA news from the same source that I do. Not sure how I feel about that.
