Considering the fact that Ariel has bitched out on numerous occassions publically to DW, I am sure that he would down right shit himself if asked about his comments in person by Wanderlie. Phone Post

I think "expressing frustration" would be more accurate.

Garv -

I've always like Ariel, but over time it seems that he's more focused on the negatives than the positives of MMA.  I remember one interview with Forrest Griffin where Ariel said that he had to pinch himself to believe he was really standing next to Forrest.  That sense of wonder is totally gone now and it shows.

Ariel says that his job is a dream job, and it is, but then there are moments like UFC 158 when he was publically humiliated by Dana White.  It was hard to watch.  Ariel's face said it all.  But what can you do?  When you get sat down by Dana, you sit down like Ariel did.  But that's gotta be frustrating, and I think it's starting to show when he can't laugh at a harmless Wand joke. 

90% of people on This forum only focus on the negative bullshit.

Wow is this thread real life?

Are you muppets really bitching about him saying to stop making April Fools Jokes.

It really is quite amazing Phone Post

"Are you muppets really bitching about him saying to stop making April Fools Jokes."

It was Wand.  You don't tell Wand to not make April Fools jokes.

If Ariel can bitch, people can bitch about his bitching, and then people can bitch about the people bitching.  It's a bitchous circle :)

Ariel is right on the money with this.

Telling untruths to media outlets like Tatame for a cheap April fools gag is just dumb. Gegard and the other media members have every reason to be pissed off.

If Jones did something like this he'd be crucified, but because Wand is pretty much the most beloved fighter on the internet MMA community, he gets a free pass.

What he did was still out of line.

CHILLITACO - Lol AH might be wound up tighter than the horse shoe in murs ass, but I still like him, he asks things others won't and he isn't afraid to upset the apple cart a little to get answers.

He can be more tactful and wear a normal suit and lose the crazy clown shoe look but he's a pro in our sport. Phone Post
He's not scared to upset the apple cart a little bit but nobody should be upsetting him. I don't mind the guy but he should have just took it as a joke Phone Post 3.0

John Joe, you make legit points.  But there are some fighters, like Wand, who transcend MMA.  Know matter how jaded a reporter has become, he needs to show the proper respect or look for another career imo.


surely thats a two-way street though? I know of one mainstream Brazilian sports outlet who's writer is super, super pissed about being fed a load of bullshit quotes to run with by Wand yesterday

the thing is, april fools (i) are supposed to be done before midday, not drag on all day and night and (ii) are supposed to have an inherent element of unbelievability. Thats the whole gag, someone falling for something stupid.

Wand has giant testicles made of concrete so the idea of him stepping in to fight anyone on ten minutes' notice is entirely plausible; by the strict formula, its not really an april fools

but like i say, whatever, its not like someone massaging statistics at a childrens hospital or something. We will all live. It does us all good to be periodically made to look like cunts, it provides perspective on things

show me this april fools rule book that you are referring to..i never heard of those rules..the fact that he trolled a bunch of reporters actually makes it funnier imo...its not a haha joke, obviously...., its a troll, which to me, is what an april fools joke is...

seems like the reporters are just pissed off because they got trolled...i mean, i dont see any fake stories on cnn on april fools...

He did had to bother Dana White just to confirm the story since it was been reported and supported by Wand himself, we can take it as a joke but he had to lick some ass just to look like a fool.

This is so true. Had AH been talking about someone other than Wandy I wouldn't really care... but Wandy is Wandy=)

I have to side with the fans digging into AH a little. I respect he has a job to do, but you can't help but notice how he comes across.

Scour - Ariel Is dead right with this call. lol and everyone hating on him,All the while wishing that someone in the MMA community would care what their opinion was. <br /><br />He basically just said it is played out and not funny, both obviously true.
It's sad. Chad Dundas and Ben Fowkles were talking about how they didn't understand and thought it was sad that mma fans take joy in just berating one of the top reporters in mma. Phone Post
Like "top reporter" means anything these days.

It was a great april fools joke.

And ariel mad. Phone Post 3.0

So Helwani thinks April Fools jokes are played out?

Funny.

He doesn't mind Chael Sonnen's hacky WWF promos.

Allow Wanderlei to have a laugh without acting like a teacher with a ruler.

It's one day of bullshit gotcha jokes.

The rest of the year the MMA "media" all try to act like stand up comics with their awful material and hilarious tweets.

Guess it's wrong if a fighter joins in.

Someone go back to 1985, get Doc Brown and send Ariel to Chute Boxe in 2000. Phone Post

I just checked his page and he re-tweeted a guy with the message basically saying he's gonna get revenge on the people who pranked him by making up shit about them after today is over

so petty

Lol at "some guy"... That was our very own JohnJoe but I'm sure no one will talk shit to him about it.

People get upset and lash out all the time when a story is misreported or is incorrect. So wtf are journalists supposed to do on 4/1 when half their peers are putting out false reports and stories, and they're trying to wade through the bullshit and do their jobs?

Y'all might have some legs to stand on on certain problems with Ariel, but attempting to report genuine news shouldn't be one of them Phone Post 3.0


that was indeed me :)

i guess depending the tone of voice you read it, it might come off different ways but i forget not everyone 'knows' me like that. Of course that comment was a joke, in exactly the same vein as the original april fool's jokes. In the same thread i was posting threats about storming his office and snapping all his pencils in retaliation - i hope nobody called 911.

I wouldnt get all butthurt about someone spinning me an MMA news yarn.  Its not like reporting on atrocities in Syria or the state of the automobile industry, something that actually seriously affects people's lives.

There again, i am not really one of the industry frontrunners in breaking news, i break things periodically but im not in the same league as some others. If youve got a near 100% average and some fucks that up for you with some annual lying day, i can see how you'd get pissed off with it. Especially as April 1 just literally fills your inbox with utter nonsense shit. April 1 would be by far the best day to invade a western country - everyone ignores the news for 24hrs.

MMA news is only entertainment/sports news so if Wand is having us all on then i will laugh - but i will also post a spread of the gayest looking pictures of him post-facelift and the on-file pic we have of him at FO in a delightful baby-pink sweater and glasses. Photoshop a rainbow flag in there too. And snap his pencils.


^ Damage control ^

Seems to me you are very biased and also judgementals of fighters.
I thought journalists were meant to report news objectively.

As a fight fan I don't care much to hear your opinions, I want you to tell me what's goin on in the fight industry/business, period. I'm not gonma say that I wish they took u off air and shit like that cus obviously U have a family to provide for but your opinions shouldn't taint your reporting.
Is like your acting as more of a critique than a reporter now a days

really? Can you give me some examples because i dont agree with that assessment, i dont think thats justified at all

dont forget, i am a fan as well, i post on the UG as a fan rather than anything else really. maybe i should get separate accounts.
