3 parts? Part 1 is already like 4000 words. You might want to consider editing for length. Even the Dos Equis guy can't sustain interest in a 12000 word interview

Do you want to be any more wordy with your interview questions?

Swedgen -

So Ariel, Karen Bryant recently said she thinks she can perform better than you as an MMA journalist, what do you have to say about that?


Hey Karen, recently we had Ariel Helwani on our show and he was going on and on about how he's a better journalist than you.  Why do you think that is?

What you did there, sir- I see it ;) Phone Post

Ariel you said: "...but in hindsight I actually thought it was unprofessional because it’s not my place interrupt and voice my opinion, or debate with somebody when I’m interviewing them. I don’t think people understand that"

Would you then now agree that your BOB SAPP interview was unprofessional?

he's pretty happy with himself. the funniest part is him trying to make it appear that it's HIS decision he doesn't hang out with the fighters...

That'd be like the towel boy hanging out daily with the football team. Course he probably says the same thing

The good news This is the absolute low point of the UG blog. There's nowhere to go from here but up.

It's nice to see a person with such a logical view of things. My respect for AH just went up. Jealous people are gonna jealous, mature people are gonna acknowledge a professional with a solid view of what he does.

Ariel Helwani: That's right. I actually don't like to do too many interviews because it's not about me.

"Hey, what do you think of my shoes?"

"I'm sensing you have an issue with me?

"Rampage, do we still have a beef?"
