If you missed Ariel Helwani’s latest episode of The MMA Hour, then you deprived yourself of one of the greatest on-air MMA feuds in recent memory. Folks, that’s why Ariel Helwani grabbed his MMA award for journalist of the year last night. He knows how to establish a topic, and then shut-up and let his formula unfold. Last Monday, Howard Stern’s soul temporarily inhabited the body of Ariel Helwani — and while some people focused on the beef between Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey, Helwani deserves some sort of accolade for not interrupting. Perhaps the next time I see him, I’ll give him this half-eaten bag of Gummi Worms in honor of his radio accomplishment. On a sidenote, Ariel Helwani is delusional if he truly thinks he’s getting my half-eaten bag of Gummi Worms. Those things represent an unfinished chapter of my life, a chapter that I will complete tonight while watching reruns of The Golden Girls.
LayzieTheSavage worked the red carpet for the 2011 MMA Awards and managed to catch this gem of Ronda Rousey meeting Chael Sonnen for the first time and subsequently ‘geeking out’ after her encounter. This video has to rank as top five candid moments in MMA this year, and we love every second of it.
