CONTRIBUTOR

Matt Connolly

I cover the business of sports with a big three/MMA focus.

My journey began as an award-winning sports writer and editor for the student newspaper at UC Santa Barbara. Since graduating in 2010, I have published, reviewed and curated sports content for top digital platforms including Comcast SportsNet Bay Area (Web Producer/Programmer), Bleacher Report (Content Producer; Editing Senior/Manager), FanSided (Team Blog Lead) and Complex Sports (Contributor). My work with Forbes will wax poetic on all spectrums of the sports business world, offering opinions all my own on the leagues, teams and figures I find most engaging in this space. I welcome intelligent debate, constructive feedback and creative proposals from readers.
