I dont think Helwani is a real mma fan. I think he saw an opportunity to get in early and make it as a reporter and he took his chance. He knew MMA had no reporters and he saw the opportunity to make a name for himself. How can a guy who despises violence so much actually like MMA? I dont think he does. He doesnt break down fights or ever talk about technique. Hes more concerned with creating fake beef on his radio show and making connections. I feel like he covers the sport, trying to convince himself hes a fan, but hes not. He might like his job, the people he meets, his lifestyle etc. I dont think he really enjoys watching fights though. He would quit mma in a second if he was offered an nba or mlb position. He faked it until he made it. Hes not a real fan like us. Hes done a lot for the sport but it was all for self gain. What do you think?
