Here we are with another exciting edition of the Press Release Corner. If you read this blog enough, you know I look at press releases, but luckily for us the MMA community typically releases news worth reading .   As a PR guy, I know it can be tough to get some of these things noticed when everyone is shouting their own news, so here are some release updates from around the industry:
