Yeah, it's a bad idea to use wikipedia as a source. Use it as a database (for which it is amazing and nothing else like it exists), and then drill down into the sources it cites, and use those Even a textbook is only as good as it's sources.

But for MMA it's pretty safe. People don't often bother to make boring vandalizations, when they do they tend to be silly and obvious and get caught very quickly by editors.
