    In those cases you're right.

    Max and Dustin both want to fight Conor though, and Dustin is facing Khabib next... Conor wants Khabib. He may not deserve it but in UFC and his eyes, he's still a top contender.

    That fight was very relevant to Conor. His next fight will be against Dustin or Max, I'd bet... or Khabib.

    And Ariel and the ESPN guys help him each time on live television by talking about each of his tweets.

    I thought Helwani loved it when fighters promote themselves.
    Annoying? Yes.
    Necessary? Absolutely.

    And what about media member, such as Helwani, incessantly talking about him.

    Works both ways, Ariel.. Shut the fuck up about Mcgregor.

    Like others have said - it is Ariel that is at fault. Conor has every right to talk about this, considering he beat both of them and he is the person that actually gets in a fucking cage and doesn't just report about it.

    Max and Poitier Combined 21-1 since losing to Conor. He is part of their story - Ariel just reports on it.

    Some people watch fighters to see them lose and Conor has a lot of haters and that is fine but he at least fights and has already has had a legendary career.

    Ask yourself this. If you won the lotto for 100 million would you even post on Sherdog anymore? Maybe, maybe not - but posting on a website is infinitely easier than cage fighting.

    If he ain't fighting, there is not much else he can do, he has to talk. But he is getting less and less relevant by day.

    Ariel does the same thing.

    He's not wrong about Conor but he should be thanking Conor for giving him good clickbait material for his pages

    Well, Muricans prefer their presidents and favourite figthers to throw hissy fits on Twitter rather than doing presidential or fighting stuff.

    It's how the world works nowadays.

    What did Conor do for Ariel's career? Wasn't he already well established and widely regarded as the top MMA reporter long before Conor came around?

    for sure, Ariel obviously made his own career what It was.

    I think all the Interviews Conor did with him though made a difference. That big publicized one. When he was going through all that bullshit with the UFC as well, Conor kept doing big Interviews with him. When Dana was kicking him out of events and all that shit.

    It doesn't seem like much but the magnitude of star that Conor is and exclusively going with Ariel seems like It propelled Ariel just bit further. Maybe It wasn't all that significant In the grand scheme, hard to say..but I tend to think Conor giving him the reigns like that makes a big difference.

    Yeah I'm not so sure about that. Ariel was already established among hardcore fans and I doubt even know he is very well known in the mainstream.

    Well, yeah. Ariel made his own career

    But, events / interviews of that magnitude can be pretty significant. Ariel was basically the guy doing all the big Interviews with Conor

    I think Conor would do anything possible to keep the buys down of cards he is not headlining just to prove how much of a draw he is by comparison.
