Ariel Helwani Kicked Out And Banned From UFC Events

Ariel Helwani has been reporting on mixed martial arts events for the past 10 years, and must have been doing something right during that time as he has been named MMA Journalist of the Year five times.

So the news that Ariel Helwani was banned from UFC for life came as a shock to many fans, although mostly to Helwani himself.

Helwani was escorted from the arena during the UFC 199 championship bout after breaking the news of Brock Lesnar’s UFC return. He didn’t even get to see Bisping win the title.

Helwani was understandably upset over this decision, stating that he was only doing his job in reporting the news.
