Sherdog was created by photographer Jeff Sherwood (nicknamed “Sherdog”) in 1997 and was later refined with the help of Garrett Poe. Sherdog features MMA news, individual records of fighters, reviews and previews of MMA events, interviews with fighters and referees, user forums, divisional & pound for pound fighter rankings, and original radio programs.
Sherdog is also home to the Sherdog Radio Network, an internet-only sports talk network featuring Sherdog writers and staffers. Weekly programs have included The Savage Dog Show hosted by Greg Savage and Jeff Sherwood, Beatdown hosted by TJ De Santis and a number of co-hosts, It’s Time hosted by Bruce Bufer and The Jordan Breen Show.
The current schedule includes Beatdown on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, It’s Time on Tuesdays, Cheap Seats on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and The SRN Rewind every Sunday evening. Also included for big events are SRN Roundtables providing previews and “Beatdown After the Bell” for post-fight recaps.
Sherdog has also affiliated with ESPN to provide extensive MMA content for their site. The deal includes ESPN sharing Sherdog’s extensive Fight Finder database. The deal would also include the Sherdog Radio Network being part of ESPN’s podcast center.
The website also has a forum section composed of thousands of members from all over the world. Recently, a subsection has enabled members to place wagers on sporting events using imaginary “vCash”.
The site hosts free live streams of mixed martial arts events from organizations such as Palace Fighting Championships, Wargods and M-1 Global.
ISA would like to thank Jeff Sherwood and Sherdog.com for allowing us to use their photos on our website!
