It is with great pleasure that I announce the addition of Dave Meltzer to the Yahoo! Sports staff as a mixed martial arts reporter.
Dave has run the Wrestling Observer, the leading professional wrestling industry trade publication, for a quarter-century.
Meltzer has covered MMA since UFC 1 in 1993, which gives him a perspective on the sport's history that few can match.
In addition to the Observer, which he will continue to publish, Meltzer has written for The National, LATimes.com and FOXSports.com. Meltzer also votes in the Y! Sports MMA monthly Top 10 poll.
Meltzer is the latest addition to an MMA/boxing team that includes award-winning reporter Kevin Iole and content partnerships with MMAjunkie.com, MMAWeekly.com, and The Fight Network. And we're not done yet, so stay tuned.
