BluegrassMMA has acquired OHMMA.com, the leader in providing Ohio Mixed Martial Arts news for the past year. Owned and operated by editor-in-chief David McKinney, the site provided news, event listings, rankings, and more from events in the Buckeye State. With his experience covering the sport at a local level, OHMMA.com quickly became a major player in the MMA media, breaking multiple high-level stories and covering events across the state.
With its acquisition of OHMMA.com, David McKinney will serve as a freelance contributor to BluegrassMMA, mostly covering events in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. His first assignment for BluegrassMMA will be covering the Caged Madness 27 event on Jan. 18 in Akron, Ohio.
“I have had a great working relationship with Gary Thomas and Juan Valle at BluegrassMMA for awhile now,” McKinney stated. “I’ve seen that they are some of the best and most dedicated writers in the local MMA community, and I figured that joining them to increase the coverage of local MMA in the Ohio Valley region would be a fantastic opportunity.”
Terms of the deal will not be disclosed, but BluegrassMMA has acquired the OHMMA.com domain and other assets that the company owned. McKinney will continue to provide professional and amateur rankings for the state of Ohio, and the OHMMA.com Twitter account will be rebranded to @OhioMMARankings. Fans can follow McKinney on Twitter @MMAMcKinney.
