For the foreseeable future Octagon Only will no longer be bringing you the latest news on a daily basis as the site creator Levi London simply will not be able to keep up with the day-to-day on going announcements necessary due to full-time commitments to both school and work.
However, all other sections of the site will be consistently updated including upcoming fights, fighter rankings, suggested fights, and fight predictions. In addition to this, there will now be a new section added that features just opinion pieces about any thing UFC related!
I will be trying to post at least one or two original pieces a week, that will likely end up being published on the same days each week; but for now just stay tuned to Octagon Only! In addition to pieces from myself, I am now asking that anyone who feels they have something say that they write up a piece (featuring at least 4-6 paragraphs of content) and submit it to my email: email@example.com and I will be very open to all incoming content. However, I hold the right to deny or edit any submissions. With that said, I would like to increase the sites original content and what you have to say is what I'm interested so please submit. Any work chosen will be posted by myself, but will be credited to you, and I can even set up an author's page for you if you like. Consistent submitters will be kept in mind for future pod-cast plans as well!
Anyway, sorry about the loss of daily news, but sites like MMAWeekly and MMAJunkie will most likely have any and all information that I would have broke to you anyway, so I suggest you turn to them for the news, but to Octagon Only for everything else!
