No.  

 

It's because Ariel has a habit of making himself completely unlikable.  He's a good "journalist" but he just doesn't know when to NOT ask a question.

Ive watched the mma hour for awhile now and Ariel alluded to some reporters not liking him awhile back. I had the sense it was her and it seems obvious given her response. She obviously knows who he is but doesnt care for him

Nice. Liked and subscribed.

 

I'm surprised he can still get an interview with anyone with his instigation/interrogation tactics and playing dumb like he's slick.   

 

Even Floyd had him figured out the first time he met him.

Bingo. You can't argue with his numbers or the fact that he has a good enough relationship with a lot of fighters that he can get them to appear on his show regularly, but his behavior is questionable. He pokes and prods and oversteps his bounds quite frequently.

 

As much as I was on team Ariel when he got banned from the UFC press section (albeit temporarily), I've shifted towards Dana's camp. Both guys are liars, but the story of Ariel being privy to information on the condition he didn't leak it,and then leaking it anyway, is entirely consistent with his character. Dana's banning of Ariel is also consistent with Dana's character, being a well-known hothead. When Ariel did his tearful presentation on his show, something just didn't ring true about his story. He was either leaving something out or slightly altering the details. He knew why he was banned, despite his proclamations that he didn't do anything wrong.

 

TL;DR version: screw that Ariel guy

Ariel used to break fights consistently but ever since that UFC 199 credentials chit, he breaks nothing, you know damn well that he could be breaking fights but he knows hes on thin ice.

 

I enjoyed him during that time because I just want to hear what fights are happening and he was going all out, breaking fights literally like 2 minutes before UFC Tonight because he was being petty. It was great lol

 

I've read Ariel gets in close with bottom level fighters and builds relationships, than he gets to the big guys. Equivalent of being the only guy to interview Chris Avila, so he can get to Nick or Nate. You see him always ask a question to the the lone person at a conference who gets no questions. It's so obvious lol

He's an instigator, which can be fun, but he's also a manipulative ****. Gotta love how he goes for the hard blink to make sure his tears are out and then checks the monitor as he spreads them across his cheeks. This is how you play victim and earn sympathy points with the softies. Classic weasel.

To be fair to Ariel,he started out real good,questioning all the crap that came out of Dana's mouth and that would fill a garbage truck but then had to cool it down because well Dana happened that's why.Dana can only insult but can't take it back.just the fact Dana hates Ariel all the more i like Ariel.

 

Ouch,Forrest really had a man grip on the shaft of that mic,doesn't look good.

 

Benevides should have just said,shes the boss,she wanted to keep her name,i am some midget who is lucky to have a cutey like Megan so she wears the pants and i wear the flip flops and hangout with other midgets like chin boy.

Lots of people stand up to Dana. He's the type of person that only respects those with a spine.

Ariel Helwani is spineless.

I think the guy is a d!ckbag.  He does the same thing however, as any political journalist, which is to try to stir the pot and upset the applecart.  He pushes buttons just for reaction, thinking that the things he asks are the things people want to hear.  The button pushing questions he asks (to me) are more tailored to those who may tune in to The Bachelor for the dramatics.
