For those of you who don’t have totally sweet memory like I do, Rich Bergeron is that guy everyone called a crackpot who spent a whole lot of time and energy on proving that Xyience was nothing but a front for screwing over investors.

After a good year or so of Rich’s nagging and reporting, Xyience decided they were gonna sue Rich for fucking their shit up. But now it seems like Rich and Xyience are on the brink of kissing and making up. From Rich’s website:

I just returned from an all expenses paid trip to UFC 78 courtesy of Xyience, Incorporated. This is the same company with a lawsuit in Clark County, Nevada that seeks $25 million from me. My trip provided several revelations that will come out soon. During the time I have been “off the radar” with my writing because of this case serious developments have been dropping like atom bombs. I refrained from writing about them due to this case, but the complete truth is starting to emerge.

I may not have had all the facts in the past. I will now accomplish a much further probe into the activities at Xyience. The new in-depth Xyience investigation will report whatever I discover and outline all the new players. Xyience has always been a good company at heart, and I have always wanted to make sure the name and the brand could persevere without the interruption of all the questionable activity at the heart of my series.

Stay tuned for what is sure to be a compelling continuation of this series.

Well howdy! What a change an all expense paid trip to UFC78 will make. Props to Rich for starting the post out with full disclosure. On the other hand, jeez! Talk about sleeping with the enemy. It’s not like Rich was at the top of my list of objective journalists … in fact, he was somewhere down there with Kevin Iole and those ‘MMA Scoops’ guys. But still … how we’re going to buy all this stuff when it looks like Rich is on the Xyience gravy train is beyond me.

But hey … I gotta hand it to Rich. He spent a long time shitting on Xyience and is finally getting something other than a big lawsuit for it. I can only hope we here at Fightlinker get some of that sweet sweet hush money too someday!
