Do any of you read MMA magazines? I want to know what you think the "good ones" are. I'm going to give a subscription to someone but I don't know what one to get.

Used to read "Fight" but haven't lately. I liked it back then. Just quit reading when I stopped training (Hailey was born).

I read Fight also, though I know Boomer used to swear by Fighters Only

Probably just read stuff online, Michelle. Is this for a guy? I think he'd be really happy to get a subscription to Fight or Fighters Only. If it's for someone who doesn't know a whole lot about MMA and is just getting into it, maybe the UFC magazine would be a good start?

I used to like Fighters Only, a British MMA Magazine....which started publication in the US around the time I last went on Tour...the numbering is different in the US, I'm not sure if the whole magazine is different or not.

I went off Fighters Only when they put poor Hywel Teague to the axe. He, IMHO is the best MMA Journalist in the entire world...I havent seen ANYONE come close to his level of writing...not online, and not in any other Magazine...I tried several other Magazines whose names slip my mind...but nothing that was as good as what Fighters Only was.

The nice thing about Fighters Only is that it was a British Publication that became mainstream in local news agents. It did tremendously well in a Country where MMA is NOT Mainstream, it wasnt then, and isnt now. They also covered European, Russian, and the Orient...so there was FAR more then just the latest from the UFC Monopoly....I imagine that has changed now also with a publication in the US...I dont know how well adapted for the American Audience that is, nor how well its accepted...but it cant be too bad because the Magazine still runs.

However...for me, it was never the same after Hywel Teague left.
