Let's Get Ready to Rumble! Fight Lawyer Joins Mixed Martial Arts Law Blog in Tiny Niche
I'm not exactly sure what this development means for the current state of legal blogging, but just know this: There are now two blogs dedicated to mixed martial arts law!
First there was the Mixed Martial Arts Law Blog, which looks to have gotten up and running in June 2009. MMALB is written by David Nelmark, a partner in the Des Moines, Iowa law firm of Belin McCormick, who says he has been a fan of mixed martial arts since the debut of the Ultimate Fight Club in 1993.
Nelmark may have briefly had a monopoly on the mixed martial arts law blogging space, but now, in this corner, the challenger, fighting out of New York City... the Fight Lawyer blog!
Fight Lawyer is the work of Justin Klein, a litigator in New York City with the law firm Satterlee Stephens Burke and Burke. Klein, says he is an "avid fight fan, boxing as well as MMA, and I am a blue belt in jiu jitsu." Like MMALB, Fight Lawyer writes about the legal issues surrounding fights (e.g., sanctioning, drug testing, or whatever the issue of the day may be).
Both blogs are now actively tracking MMA developments, and show no signs of "tapping out" any time soon.
