 At this point, MMA interviewer/analyst Ariel Helwani is more famous than a lot of the people he interviews. If you've ever spotted him at an MMA event, you know that he can't get ten feet without being swarmed by another group of fans, who follow his work intently at MMAFighting.com and Versus. Keep in mind that Ariel Helwani is not a fighter. He's just a dude who started with a dream and went on to become the most well-known interviewer in our sport. To put it simply, he's come a long way since Andrei Arlovski's pee-pee-pee

So here's something special for all the Helwannabes in the house: Ariel stopped by the CagePotato.com booth at the UFC Fan Expo on Saturday and spent some time on the other side of the microphone. Watch the video above to learn about Ariel's journey from sports fan to "liver of the dream," his love of Howard Cosell, and of course, why he thinks we're so awesome. Many thanks to Ariel for giving us his time and, at least for one moment, lending the CagePotato.com carnival booth some measure of legitimacy.

Note: Keep your eyes peeled around 2:41 and 2:56 to watch some amazing background work from ReX13. Yep. That's what I had to deal with all weekend.

Followed all this guys work from mmarated on. It's really something on how fans rallied behind this guy from the beginning; straight from the get go and no cred to back himself on. I do truly feel we won something by having him in the center stage where he's at now. When mmarated went down everyone called out to get this guy a job (not saying we helped at all) but now he has the best platform to work on and we do get the best content we could hope for.
