I was on Tagg Radio today talking about fighters.com with professional fighter Frank Trigg, Gorgeous George and the Infamous Goze. During the show we also officially soft launched the site (is it a soft launch if you announce it? ). Its very beta and we have a long way to go but we have been running into the whole chicken or the egg thing lately and just decided to go with it and hammer stuff out as it comes. Dillsmack has done an amazing job coding pretty much everything but the news system from scratch.
Within minutes of opening it up to the public we had hundreds of registered users so we are off to a great start. This is pretty much going to be my heart and soul for the next year much like AuctionAds was in 2007, fighters.com is my thing in 2008.
There was some really good questions asked during the radio show and I was pretty nervous… here I am talking to a professional fighter one of the best ever at the welterweight devision (hughes vs. trigg2 is my fav fight of all time) and I am talking about our new MMA website to him. His first question was like… so what does this site do that the other 8000 MMA websites don’t do. My answer was pretty simple. We have a very good track record for coming into any competitive market. Be it ring tones or whatever and really listening to what users want then completely going over the top delivering. In time fighters.com will be the ultimate MMA resource. I have no doubt.
