Skip Ohlsen, the owner of now defunct Genesis MMA makes today's STL Post....front page, above the fold. Sources tell me this is just the beginning of what's about to be made public on Ohlsen. If this is just the start, who knows what is to come?

Yeah I have been following this story between your posts and the newspaper. It sounds like something you would see on Dateline or 60 Minutes. Crazy story!

Yeah, I remember covering one of his Genesis shows a few years back.

Here's the conversation:

Garrett: Skip, this is Dave Patek with SEF - he's covering the fights for you on his website...

Skip: Looks at Dave, shakes hand "You need to sit behind the camera crane"

Dave: Pleasure to meet you Skip, this is a really cool setup you have here...

Skip: "Thanks. Sit behind the camera jib away from the rest of the paying audience".

Dave, Oh, OK - they didn't tell us we shouldn't sit in the empty seats. Sorry about that.

Skip: I'm telling you. Either sit behind the jib - or watch it on a monitor in the hallway. Just stay away from the seats.

Dave (to Travis, a buddy): I hate MMA.

Sherdog reported that UFC 103 blew Mayweather/Marquez out of the water with the amount of PPV buys. Are there any real numbers to back this up or is it all hype
