    I have always wondered this. How the hell does Helwani know when the deal is done, close to being finalized, only considered etc. For example: Brock Lesnar UFC 200. The deal is between Dana, fighter A and his manager and fighter B and his manager. How the fuck Helwani knows what happens inside UFC's headquarters? Since new owners released most of the old farts from their jobs, still Helwani knows almost everything. He was wrong about Conor and Khabib deal "not done" then he deleted the tweet. How was UFC able to hide this from Helwani? I don't want to believe any manager secretly feeds information for Helwani. Media people please enlighten me.

    Rumor was Helwani found out 200 from Nick the tooth. Nick was canned the next morning from LFAF
    Since then he hasn't broken any real news outside of fights & those are from the fighters he befriends
    He never broke any business info or anything investigative

    How does any good reporter get the their info? Same with Helwani. He knows people.

    He probably gives gifts and has relationships with a lot of insiders

    Perhaps it's from under the covers bedroom talk while having relations with the fighters' wives?

    Yes but why he is not accurate 100% of the time? I'd assume he is if someone reliable feeding him the information. I doubt Dana is making deals with 100 people in the room watching. There has to be other ways
