Tuesday’s Episode of “The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani” left fans wanting as Helwani was unable to make it to his guest interviews, having been caught in a four hour shoot about a shit-talking fighter’s recent appearance on another podcast in which he took three shots at Helwani. The hours-long teardown cut down the fighter point-by-point with carefully curated evidence which comprehensively disproved each false statement the fighter had made about the journalist, having precisely as much impact on the athlete and his future behaviors as calling him a mean name would have. The episode wasn’t a total wash, however, as it did generate a good half dozen highly-shareable pieces of social media content.
