Ariel needs to be separate from Dana/ESPN to really speak his mind and do his job.
It’s hilarious mma press conferences are always the same 5 reporters and then like random former NFL player. Always wonder how that one dude just always gets the number 1 spot.
Edit: I think it's some else. Can't remember the dudes name now for some reason.
Yeah Dana isn’t going to let any reporter he gives access to get out of bounds. Which is funny considering he bitches about the media and he dictates everything from guys he gives access to.
reporters at press conferences:
Robbie from Barstool
2-3 actual mma media members
Yea, it's John Morgan.
Read an article where burns was basically like "fuck it, I'm not here to entertain people." Ehhhhhhh I mean yea you kind of are.
I mean I guess. That's such a low bar. I think he brings that WWE/story telling aspect to following MMA which is good.
Could you pick any other MMA journalist out of a lineup? Dude has been on top of the game for 15 years.
I mean I watch some content while Im working from home so I know of a few, but I get your point.
Brett Okamoto is a solid journalist, and he'll probably be breaking a lot of news going forward with the info UFC gives to ESPN.
Kevin Iole is good, but not necessarily a news breaker.
Is Dana's bitch
I know a lots of the radio guys but I'm not sure if you'd call them journalists. They are definitely MMA media.
What is Josh Rosen up to these days?
The fact that some weirdo gets legit access as some character he created called "the Schmo" is all you need to know about UFC journalism
Bob Fox is dana's boy now too. He gets tons of access as well.
always been disappointed with his interviews too
There was a time when I would have been stoked to see Nick Diaz back in the ring, but with the way I’ve seen fighters fall off after way shorter time away from the sport, I’m just not all that interested.
the mma needs to do what the pga does and make a senior league
It's called Bellator
I immediately thought Bare Knuckle but yea Bellator too.
VanZant is fighting Ostovich tonight.
Anybody know where I can find a link?
i've been down a ufc rabbit hole on youtube, watching fights from like 15-20 years ago. the change in the level of boxing/standup between then and now is insane. these dudes were just throwing wild punches all the time
GSP was revolutionary because he used a jab.
Like, no one thought to throw a freaking jab before him.
remembering it used to be bare knuckle, headbutts were legal, and you could wear shoes blew my mind
one of my favorite headkick KOs.
I did this during quarantine and watching some of the old Ortiz/Liddell fights were hilarious. I remember thinking 2 things
1. id hate to get into a bar fight with these guys
2. Jon Jones on a bad day would toy with the peak versions of these cats.
I also watched some Lesnar fights and corpses have more head movement than he did
Lesnar really didn't like getting hit. Don't get me wrong, I'd do the same thing, but it was weird seeing a UFC fighter flinch and then turtle like he did.
i know PEDs are still an issue now, but seeing the guys in the 90s is insane. Ken Shamrock looked like he was inflated with a bike pump.
i thought kicking people with shoes on was illegal
It is now
Give me juiced to the gills Kevin Randleman in PrideFC over them all. Who the hell knowsnwhay guys like him and Wandei had coarsing through their veins
It's wild thinking about a guy like Shogun that fought Randleman and Coleman.. And also fought Jones.
randleman knocks out Cro Cop, then puts Fedor on his head and it doesn’t phase Fedor one bit
i've been trying to match up his fights with whatever weight class he was in at the time. seems like there may have been some shenanigans wrt weigh ins back then
I believe the drug test was you piss in a cup and if it doesn't melt then you're good to go
in retrospect I’d have guessed he weighed 240ish
Lmao at game face walking into the octagon and having the laugh it off
Guys like him and tito had tiny ass lower bodies.
Bad decision. Maverick won that fight.
Barber simply did not win that fight. Other girl got hosed.
This is why MMA will remain fringe and Dana knows it. That girl walked Barber down and less one spinning elbow dominated the fight. Judges remain absolutely horrible.
Something should be done in this case. That’s as bad a decision as I’ve ever seen.
Elkins is one tough SOB
Phillips is explosive as hell
Wow what a fight so far
