i'm sure can be and is at times, but not at others. the problem, is that you don't know when he's being genuine. to me, you cannot get past the fact that he's employed by the ufc. how can you trust him to be even-handed? you can't.

pick one -- equality, or quality. can't have both.

point-nerds: fans of mma who enjoy fighters that attempt to win fights on points-alone, that do not fight for a finish.

People should appreciate Ariel. There is absolutely no name you can tell me right now in mixed martial arts that does better interviews than him. He asks all the right stuff, he improvises with questions if he has to, he reacts to all the twists in interview by well-timed sub-questions, he has good relationships with most of the fighters, he has his finger on the pulse, he does the best interview with the man with most valuable information - Dana White - and be breaks news all the times.

Jesus christ, people should give this guy a break

I like Ariel a lot! Btw Karen Bryant (i think her name is) also works for FOX and people never talk shit about that.

I love the mmahour and Ariel is a great representive of mma media.

You would think an MMA Journalist would be able to cover all aspects of MMA.... Including other orgs(ie Bellator)...

If you bother the big bad Dana, your job is in jeopardy ... even if you do not directly work for him....

Strange world I tell ya... Dana "L'eggo my Ego" White.

How many MMA journalists know who this man is and can get an interview and breaking news from him?

Ever single journalist is afraid to. Another journalist should win the award who does exactly what he does but not even as good?
