    Cliffs:
    Says he has a non-existent relationship with Dana.
    Says he was 'supremely close' to Dana at one point.
    Doesn't text or interact with Dana at all.
    Says that not talking to Dana doesn't bother him. Says that if you are telling it like it is, your relationship will always be positive.
    Says he gets uncomfortable if Dana messes with his life/when it gets personal.
    Tries his hardest to not be biased, says sometimes it is difficult.
    Says that when Dana is pissed, he lets you know.
    Hasn't talked to him since UFC 199.
    Says someone at ESPN nudged him to get his relationship with Dana sorted out and Ariel sent a text, and Dana never replied.
    Says he can make a very strong case that the olive branch should be reached out to HIM. From Dana. As he lost money due to Dana's decisions.

    His relationship with Dana is one of the only times I've ever been on Dana's side.

    Really? I'm glad he got out from underneath his fingers. All reporters kiss his ass for content.

    Oh you like Dana’s hand-picked cuck-media where the same motherfucker asks the first question every single time? Thanks for outing yourself.

    He's a TMZ level shock journalist. I don't like him because he puts himself in the middle of too many stories.

    Ariel wasn't breaking anything important though, he told everyone Brock was fighting a few hours before they released it, and acted like he was risking it all for journalism lmao

    Don't blame Dana for being pissed

    Dana can't stand having nothing but hand-picked stooges in the media to lick bread-crumbs off his fingers and ask nothing but softball questions that make the UFC look good (as hard as that is).

    Yup. His questions to JDS and Yoel about going back to their kids beltless were retarded as fuck. Even when JDS cried, he couldn't help himself.
    Wonder if he feels like an alpha that way.

    Dana made him giving him the access and the stories and then he bit the hand that fed him cause he wanted to have it both ways. He wanted the spotlight and the access and the scoops but then wanted the praise and respect of his peers as a journalist and those sides clashed.
