Beef Alert: Ariel Helwani throws shade at Ben Fowlkes over Nicco Montano reporting

Not like this. Iron Man is fighting Captain America, Macho Man just turned on Hulk Hogan or Ariel Helwani had some stern words for Ben Fowlkes.

Once co-workers at MMA Fighting, now rivals at separate outlets (not really), Helwani called out Fowlkes for a recent story on MMA Junkie.

In his weekly Trading Shots post with Danny Downes (who will play the role of The Winter Solider/Miss Elizabeth is this analogy), Fowlkes wrote about Helwani’s recent beef with Nicco Montano.

We’ve scanned the post and can’t really find what Fowlkes wrote that was inflammatory? Anyone? Any guesses?

You may remember Montano for being the UFC women’s flyweight champion or you may remember her from dropping an Ariel Helwani diss track last week.

Either way, Helwani called out Fowlkes on this week’s edition of the MMA Hour for some journalism reasons? Ain’t no beef like a MMA media beef because a MMA media beef rarely happen and we’re all just trying to get by in this cruel, dark world known as mixed martial arts.

Here’s the audio and fantasy book your own Ben Fowlkes responses to the Ariel Helwani talking to and or friendly Canadian conversation.

Check out the full episode of The MMA Hour below. The Montano talk kicks off at the 26 minute mark and runs until about 29 minutes.
