Helwani Rewind - On This Day
@arielhelwani via Twitter on Oct 27,2011
Dana announces that @Jon_Anik, formerly of ESPN, is the newest addition to the @UFC family. Starts in January. Congrats, Jon. Well-deserved.
With today marking 10 years since this announcement, figure I’d ask- For you, where does Jon Anik stand in the history of the UFC and MMA media?
Been a while since we’ve seen him on any of your shows, hopefully we’ll get to talk to him sometime soon…
👋 Hola Ariel!!!
As everyone knows by now Nate Diaz has one fight left on his current contract.
Hypothetically speaking if Khamzat Chimaev wins this Saturday would the UFC try to book him against Nate?
Also, would they offer that fight hoping Nate will decline and then hit him with an extension letter setting up a McGregor x Diaz trilogy instead for his final fight under contract?
Viva Heelwani 🦹🏻♂️
Happy hump day Helwani.
Q: what are some of your favourite sporting/ entertainment events you were in attendance for? List off the highlight reel moments you witnessed with your very eyes.
Caveat to that: are there any that you were in attendance for that were more entertaining when played back at home?
Shoutout to Mama Nose if she still listens to every show!
Hey Ariel, I’m a big fan of Jiří Procházka and it got me thinking who do you think has the most exciting fighting style in today’s MMA?
If you were a wrestling manager, alongside Kayla Harrison, what MMA fighters or pro wrestling stars would you want to be a Heelwani guy or girl?
What’s Sean Shelby like?
Good morning Ariel , hope you are having a lovely day.
"With fighters like Hardy, Bisping, Felder and Chiesa moving from the cage to behind a desk and making entirely new careers for themselves, which current UFC fighters will make the best in-booth commentators, analysist's and or media members in 10-15 years time?"
For quality, Anthony Smith, Michelle Waterson and Chandler; but for banter, Sugar Sean, Till and Perry would be my picks. New subscriber , Much love from the UK
Hola Bapa, following on from last week, this is neither a question or comment, real fax time. If you're a fighter and you are too afraid to upset the guy you pay, by utilising the biggest MMA fan platform to help further your own brand/image/contracts, you are a fool. Bisping, DC and Chael, the Holy trinity of MMA, understood the game of pushing your own career not some bs narrative your mmmmmmananger wants to push to better his own standing and financial interests. Wise up Bs.
Ariel my man! You’re THE best in the business.. 2 part question if you don’t mind. There quick! Who do you think is going to win sat, Hangman or islam? And in your mind do you believe kayla stays with PFL, or goes to bellator or UFC?
How much do I have to pay as a founding member to get the helwani afro to grow
Hey Ariel big fan from Australia! I noticed you don’t follow anyone in the AFL ,
A. have you ever watched the sport?
And B. Can I send you and Adelaide Crows Jersey for your studio I would love to make you a fan!
Ariel, I’m going to the Bulls Knicks game tomorrow. With both teams on the rise, can we bring that rivalry back? That was a great rivalry growing up. Go Bulls!
Hello Ariel. On your Monday show, you revealed that your Conor McGregor toy fell and it’s legs broke off. It seems symbolic seeing how far he’s fallen as a person recently. What are your thoughts on his behavior since his last two L’s to Dustin?
Is there a way to quantify how good/bad a fight night or PPV card is.
Rankings are numbered themselves, so if a fighter is ranked 15 = 1 point, ranked 14 = 2 points etc to champs with 16 points.
In this manner, UFC 267 main card is scoring 103 points, UFC 268 main card is 101 and UFC 269 is 100 points. Is this a fair way to compare cards ?
Best segment of the week!
Why do main event fighters get 4 cornermen and the remaining fighters get 3?
Any chance you doing any collabs with the morning kombat guys?
What is the brand of the chair you are currently sitting on?
