I've been watching her work with the UFC and I have to say, she's terrible.

Her style is just something that makes me think she's an awful interviewer.

Her interview with Dana and Honda alone make me shake my head and wonder why they didn't just get a monkey to hold up cue cards with the questions on them.

I don't watch enough of her interviews to have a strong opinion on her, but I'm with you in the sense of her not being a great interviewer. Her persona seems fake and not natural. 

On the other side of things, she's very attractive and probably a really nice person in general.

Have seen her plenty. Don’t care. Never been bothered. Just like the commentators don’t bother me in the least and people make threads butthurt about that like it’s ruining their night. Have never felt the same way.

She gets a free pass from me for being a little fittie.

All women in sports are horrible interviewers, they’re there to be pretty for the camera and show how “diverse” these sports and networks are

Her skills are terrible.

Karyn Bryant is pretty good.

Therefore women can be decent.

The UFC is messing with us.

I always thought Heidi Androl (?) was a fantastic interviewer and pretty darn cute.  Megan is professional but I’m not a fan.

"On Forest Griffin's podcast, he brings up Helwani's name and Megan Olivi rolls her eyes, says "I don't know who that is" (like when a fighter says "who?" when asked about another fighter they may dislike etc.) and makes it very clear (through her words and body language) that she does not like Helwani. 

She also somehow compares their jobs, completely overlooking that she is there to sell the UFC product rather than objectively report on it. Forrest politely tries to point that out, but he's kinda trashing Helwani too. 

Olivi is clearly Dana's little helper, but Forrest's comments do kinda show how maybe MMA reporters like Helwani objectify fighters sometimes to the point of insult (I think Helwani, though I like him, sees MMA fighters the same way he sees pro wrestlers - all big physiques and cartoony storylines - and that's a mistake) and I think what FG says is fair (ish)..."

Around the 56:50 mark - if a blue name would kindly help:

Not to me she's not. Annoying voice, pointy witch nose.

I also hate how she calls Dana "Boss" all the time, such a kiss ass.

She's not an MMA reporter/interviewer. She only shills for the UFC.

Megan is professional?

Seriously?

I have to disagree.
