Ariel Helwani is very good interviewer in terms of timing ,delivery and being comfortable in front of the camera. I think it also helps that he went to the Syracuse School of Journalism (which I'm told is the UFC of journalism schools).Alot of the MMA interviewers don't seem comfortable in front of the camera and their delivery seems forced and tense. I am assuming this is because the older generation of MMA journalists don't have the journalism training that the newer guys like Ariel have.

...I'm deaf so I don't catch guys video interviews...  I only assumed a journalist like Cofield would be somewhat eloquent like Helwani is considering he is a fairly 'big name' journalist himself.  The only interviews I ever check out are the ones that get transcribed.

Cofeld's not that eloquent. He stumbles over words and has a haughty, condescending delivery.Has he even been to journalism school?

I love how I get attacked for my post count, I still work two jobs. Look pal this might upset you, I know more about the sport than Cofield ever will, this will never change. The only time Cofield knows more than me is when he is spoonfed a scoop from Dana or someone else. Also remember this Ramsey, you much like blue63 put words in my mouth. Where did I say my opinion was more valuable? If it was Dana would be paying me instead of Cofield. That's you projecting your feelings because you simply value my opinion more than Cofield's. I just said he doesn't have a clue because he has yet to take a step in the kiddy pool, but somehow he's swimming with sharks and chumming the water.    Maybe I should start up a blog and call myself a journalist too!  Also I have been asked to write for companies before, but nobody is willing to pay me and I can write for free on the UG and share opinions with people who actually truly understand the sport, many of whom understand the sport much more than I do. I am not saying I am some genius when it comes to MMA, just saying that Cofield is the typical never trained a day in his life MMA journalist, that's all.  Oh and to answer your question about why it matters if he has trained or not?  If you had trained yourself you would understand and agree. So I am assuming you are offended as having not trained yourself, I never said fans should train to understand the sport. It's not really necessary, you're just there to enjoy the fights and Rogan does excellent work walking fans through the action.  To really appreciate the difficulty of certain maneuvers and to understand the complexity of the sport you have to experience it firsthand. You need to try jiu jitsu and see how tiring it can be, how much drilling it requires to learn the moves and how aggressive sparring feels. Submission grappling looks easier than it is.. It's important to have trained in striking so you can understand why a guy isn't just throwing a punch when you think he should be, to understand timing and distance you need to have a feel for it. To get a feel you need to train. If you have never taken a leg kick it's not something you can just imagine, you need to try it out and realize how fucking bad they hurt.

Let me ask, who are you, and what makes your opinion on the matter better than Cofields? Oh I forgot, you're CRE, forum star with over 46,000 post in just 3 years. And tell me, why does it matter if he trains or not?

So since I have wrestled since age 12 and have been rolling BJJ for a couple years now does that make me more qualified to be a MMA journalist than these guys who haven't but are much more eloquent with their English and can actually speak and hear??? All I'm sayin is, don't hate on a journalist just because he wasn't an amateur boxer or wrestler or currently takes BJJ classes.. a good journalist is a good journalist, regardless of their athletic experiences.

Floyd Mayweather agrees with me about these journalists blue63, these guys have never even competed on any level in these sports and they're supposed to be credible journalists, they're bloggers with greater exposure man. "You got the same people in football, you got people that's writin and talkin about football players and basketball and other athletes that never got on a field or got on a court or got in a ring"
