"I hope he goes on a three fight losing streak and gets the hell out of MMA" - Ariel on ESPN Radio.

He also said that Cro-Cop lied and basically punked everyone. His words, not mine.

Thoughts?

 Why does Ariel care so deeply where CroCop fights?

Ariel should wait and hear Cro-Cop's side of things before saying something like that.

 I believe he also said "screw him, he's a nobody." If he's a nobody why are you so butt hurt acting like a scorn woman?

Because he's a journalist that wants to stay on Dana's good side.

He's taking a little too personal, maybe.

Ariel is a great reporter, delivers very good, professional interviews. Surprised to hear him say something like that. I think Cro Cop had every right to spurn the UFC and Dana after they tried to "renegotiate" his last contract after just 2 losses. What goes around comes around...

I didnt even know who he was until I google'd him.

It seems that he works for Versus- and WEC is shown on that channel...seems like biased journalism to me.

Either that, or he is just dumb.

Why would any journalist wish ill will on a fighter for going to another organization when all they had was a one fight deal with Dana?

As many have posted prior, UFC cuts people all the time before their contract ends, since they have a clause to do so.

 did anyone even want to see Cro Cop in the UFC? I'm surprised Dana even acted like he cared Mirko lied to him. Mirko is over the hill, a non draw in North America and apparently a liar. I wouldn't want to do business with someone like that

Ariel usually is professional and does a good job, but if he did say that it's amateur hour for him. Maybe Dana slipped him a Benjamin.

I'm pretty sure if he came through the drive through you would take his order.

Ariel also goes on to say that Cro Cop is a nobody.

.....damn. Is Ariel butt hurt or what? Did Mirko refuse to do a interview with him?

Ariel always puts on quality interviews, the guy is all over the place getting the best coverage. I'd expect more professionalism from him. It's like Ariel has become Dana Jr. over night.

It's very disappointing when journalists attempt to become the story and that's what he's effectively done. Not professional at all.

Ariel wasn't reporting. He was offering commentary and offering an honest opinion on a subject. If he was simply reporting the results and started editorializing, you'd have a point but the whole point on his appearance on the show was to state HIS opinions.
