Ariel Helwani Was Escorted Out of Arena by Zuffa Staff & Banned for Life

Post by CDF47 on Sun Jun 05, 2016 9:46 am

Zuffa kicked Ariel Helwani out of UFC 199 yesterday prior to the main event, pulled his credentials, and banned him for life. He was also recently fired from his job at FOX.

I hope Ariel can find a good job elsewhere. Maybe SpikeTV is hiring.

I hope he lands a job with Spike now. Zuffa really turned on him, first firing him from Fox and now kicking him out of UFC shows, pulling his credentials, and permanently banning him.

Sorry for his family and I'm mixed as it does suck when someone loses their job. On the other hand, Helwani has abandoned his responsibility as a journalist to be a shill for Zuffa for years. I have no problem if he wants to work for the UFC but don't claim to be an MMA Journalist when you barely cover other companies, spew UFC talking points, and throw softball questions to Dana White. That's not to just him, it's to the entire MMA Media. I know it won't, but I do hope the media wakes up and sees their future because Helwani isn't the first, nor will he be the last. You get in bed with Zuffa, it doesn't matter how respected or liked you are, how many MMA Awards you've won, and well known you are because all it takes is one thing to anger them to get thrown out, lose your credentials, and get a lifetime ban. It will be interested to see who Zuffa picks to replace him.

He deserves to crash and burn and have his 'journalism' career ended. He is not an ethical reporter and shouldn't be working as one.

Just read about that. Story keeps getting crazier. Yeah, I guess Dana's body guard choked him and roughed him a bit.

Helwani is now reporting that when he worked for FOX as a journalist he was getting paid by Zuffa. We already figured these sort of things were happening but pretty cool to hear it from someone like Helwani.

It was crazy that they had a bodyguard choke Ariel and rough him up. So he got his credentials back but still no job with Fox from what I understand.

lol what a circus show. People & their egos clashing when really all these fuckers are on the same side. Gonna put on my white knight armour & just say while I despise 99% of the sport industry & corporate world throwing shilwani around back stage is hilarious. Throwing out another of his male colleagues is meh...but getting rough with Esther Lin is a new low for these scum. I hear she got thrown out too. Maybe they didn't touch her but still. She just takes photos.

Pretty sad that the MMA zombies only care about Helwani. They don't care that others are permanently banned so long as the guy they consider the top journalist gets back in, that's all that matters to them.

Josh Gross was on Inside MMA this week discussing the Zuffa oppression of journalist.  Was nice to see Gross on there.  He was one of the first to stand up to the Zuffa media control. They even discussed his black listing 10 years ago, which he is still black listed.
