With the steady rise of Mixed Martial Arts in the mainstream and the new followers of the sport, you would think that the marketing teams for the fighters would know that their target demographic spend hours every day online and would probably be their biggest promoters. But judging by the style of the following 25 websites from 25 of MMA’s top fighters, I am assuming they didn’t get that memo.
One even bigger problem I found while researching this post was that some of the bigger names didn’t even have websites up live online (from what I could find anyways). Some of the bigger names did have good websites and it wouldn’t have been right putting them in the list, so if you don’t see your favorite fighter on this list, its because their website was ok :)
Anyone else notice the cheesy cage backgrounds and overuse of a fighting stance with one fist out at the camera? Someone needs to jump up and bring these guys into 2009 properly because right now, they’re losing out on connections with their fans and building the proper fan base to ensure they’re a name that everyone wants to see.
