Obviously, Ariel Helwani is the daddy. His content is so good and he's consistently putting new stuff out there. I'd be lost on fight week these days without his YouTube channel. The MMA Hour is great. The MMA Beat is great. But I think it's his one on one interviews where he really shines most. Not the fight week ones, although they're quality as well. I'm talking those in depth longer ones like the Walk Around Dublin with McGregor, the two with Rampage in New York and Japan, the one with Bisping before the Anderson fight. Nobody gets more out of the fighters than Helwani does. MMA is better for having him involved in it. Anyone who knows what the thread title refers to though, will know I'm throwing some love to the big man Luke Thomas. I don't agree with everything he says. There's been times I've thought him a dick. And the stuff a while back where he was trying to act like you're a big racist if you don't like Jon Jones was ridiculous. But on the whole, I think he's probably my favourite MMA media guy these days. Helwani aside. He's not for everyone but I love his live chat/podcast 'Promotional Malpractice', which is on every Wednesday. He's pretty outspoken and opinionated, probably moreso than most of the MMA media actually. But I like him. He's really good on the MMA Beat, he's good in media scrums (he was all over that Dana scrum at 207 this week) and even if I don't agree with something he says he usually has a solid argument for his case. I just wish he wouldn't censor his own swear words. Either swear or don't. No-one's going to melt if they hear the word 'fuck' on a podcast. In relation to nothing MMA, here's Luke explaining why he doesn't listen to Drake... https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&persist_app=1&v=4itrdRNQQJ0 Luke being a Sean Price fan also gets him bonus points from me. On the negative side of MMA media; It's got to be Big Bad GAD. Not even bothering explaining that one. It's been done to death on here. If you don't know just watch an interview of him. Pretty much any. So there you have it. There's loads more I like but I'll leave it there for now. Feel free to link to other journalists work, podcasts, articles, what have you.
