It’s been quite a journey, but it’s now time to move on’.

‘I would like to thank our readers, partners and contributors who have supported us through the years. My thanks, too, to the team over at GRV Media, who have been professional and understanding during the sale process. The company has kindly agreed that I can continue to operate in this space should I elect to do so’.

GRV Media Executive Chairman Vic Daniels said: ‘Bloody Elbow will complement our existing portfolio of sports brands, which operate in football, F1, golf, NFL, tennis and wrestling. We will be changing the Bloody Elbow content strategy, and will be producing MMA news and views with a different slant as we build the reader base’.

Graham Morris, GRV’s CEO, said: ‘We are delighted to be adding the Bloody Elbow brand to our existing portfolio of websites. This deal demonstrates that we are committed to a strategy of growing our business both organically and via acquisitions. We wish Nate and all his team the very best for the future’.
