    LOL at Ryo Chonan's comment on pulling off the same slick submission on Anderson today. Chonan is awesome.

    He brings a weird vibe.

    Tries to look so nice and respectful, but he is definitely not the kind of person I would trust.

    i didn't know that the UFC is pissed with helwani and they got him fired, they didn't like him breaking all that news, especially the diaz/Mcgregor rematch

    And we are all hooked on that Cartman shit.

    MMA journalists may suck but that is what we all do here day in and day out is talk about their shit.

    MMA lacking Helwani would be a shame.

    It's not like he died. He just lost TV appearances on non-PPV cards.

    Let's not forget that he isn't some masterful investigative reporter. The Jones interview he did, he basically gave a PR platform and never asked any hard questions.

    He beats Cage Potato and evolved from being an MMA blogger to being the most respected MMA reporter. Yet, he still is more of a reporter than he is a journalist. Reporters report news. Journalists dig stories. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy his work. He sold out long ago, and I am fine with it if it allows for more access to fighters' personality outside the Octagon.

    Perhaps breaking the news of UFC 200 too early?

    Glazer sucks for MMA coverage. Helwani actually knows what he's covering, has talked to virtually everyone in the sport, and doesn't sound like a slobbering goof. Good to hear from other journalists like Deitsch.

    Fuck that cornball show UFC Tonight anyway. Keep the plagiarist, the British butter-toothed derp face, and rotate in a revolving crew of mouth-breathers. Not my cup of tea.
