Dave Schmulenson Calls Out Ariel Helwani

The President of the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship confirmed that Dave Schmulenson has called out Ariel Helwani to a grappling contest. Dana White could hardly control his laughter when announcing that these two have started online arguments. Most aren’t aware of Dave “The Schmo” Schmulenson, who is quickly becoming a celebrity in the MMA Community. His audience primarily relates to younger viewers of the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship, with Dave Schmulenson having interviewed several UFC Fighters. The Schmo Podcast was permitted an interview with Dana White recently, with the UFC President not deterred by the odd behaviour of Dave Schmulenson’s.

Dave “The Schmo” Schmulenson called out Ariel Helwani because of his controversial statements made over social media. The actions shown by Ariel Helwani over recent years prompted Dana White to ban this media figure from all UFC Events. It inspired Helwani to start online arguments with multiple fighters in the MMA community, who are contracted under Dana White. It’s gotten Ariel Helwani nowhere back into UFC Events & caused more rifts in the community, with Dave “The Schmo” Schmulenson wanting to stop the banned media reporter from ever returning to the MMA World.

Dana White confirmed that Dave Schmulenson was issuing a grappling match against Ariel Helwani, which genuine UFC Supporters know is considerably more tiring & challenging than standard MMA fighting. It’s an area of combat sports that Ariel Helwani has infamously questioned & remarked as weak. The Schmo wants to prove that this media representative is talking smack that cannot be backed by physical efforts. Accepting this grappling match must be accomplished in the 165 to 185 Weight Divisions, with the winner being awarded $25,000.00 towards their desired charity. Refusing to accept under these conditions will make Ariel Helwani look foolish & weak to what supports he still has in the MMA Community.

Laughing It Off

The hysterical nature of Dana White when confirming this announce is enough to make anyone laugh. He noted that calling out Ariel Helwani is like trying to fight a little girl, making light of the weakness associated with this media representative. It’s not known if Dana White will allow this grappling match to be hosted at “UFCs Fight Island” or under any venue with this competition. By his reaction, it’s unlikely.

Dana White Turns Back on Jon Jones

Dana White Turns Back on Jon Jones

Nobody anticipated that Dana White would turn against his fighters. That’s been the conventional approach of UFCs President since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in the United States. It prompted numerous cancellations of UFC Events, with multiple fighters refusing to compete for their safety. Dana White responded by releasing those contestants from their contracts, with those fighters mostly having a minimal presence in the UFC. Now Dana White is implementing similar tactics towards his most notable contenders, including Jon Jones.

The statistically best fighter in the UFC Light Heavyweight Division has requested Dana White release him from his contract. It followed after negotiations for a bout against Francis Ngannou didn’t reach an agreement. Reporters questioned Dana White on why this match-up was declined, with the UFC President noting that Jon Jones requested an obscene payment. The Light Heavyweight Champion denied these claims from Dana White, stating the President was lying to avoid additional backlash against his recent actions. The remarks follow more in line with White’s past behaviour.

When Dana White verbally attacked Jon Jones in the press, it prompted the champion to make a series of remarks through Twitter. The 1st sentiments from Jones stated that if Dana White is going to continue lying, that Jon will defend himself & contact his lawyer, Hunter Campbell. Jones threatened to release text messages that would show White was lying & trying to destroy the reputation of the UFCs most notable fighter.

Jones most likely didn’t request a massive payday, with him being similar to Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. These men care more about the competition than anything else. However, Jon Jones should receive payments identical to other leading fighters in the UFC. This includes Deontay Wilder, Conor McGregor, Justin Gaethje, and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Considering that Jones is statistically the greatest fighter in UFC history, it’s shocking that Dana White wouldn’t already offer a massive payday to Jon Jones.

Fighting analysts speculate that under the recent behaviour of Dana White, He’ll meet the requests of Jon Jones & cancel his contract. It’s thought that this would be the final deterrent that angered his remaining fighters. McGregor, Wilder, and Nurmagomedov would become concerned about their contract safety if Jones can enter the lousy side of Dana White by requesting to much cash, who else will be attacked internally.

Spartacus

Spartacus

Spartacus was born a Thracian in the area to the south-east of present-day Europe. Little is known about his life before he became a gladiator in Rome. The chance are he was taken prisoner when the Thracians and the Romans crossed swords, or he joined the Roman army of his own free will and deserted and was captured and, because of his fighting skills, was sent to a gladiator school. His school was based at Capua with other slave/gladiators where they lived, trained and were held captive, not unlike a prison of today. These men devoted all their time to training and learning how their opponents, who came from all over the known world, fought and weapons and tactics they employed.

In 73BC he escaped with a group of gladiators and, together with the other runaway slave, they based themselves on the slopes of Mt Vesuvius where they all received training from the experienced gladiators. Spartacus was assisted in the leadership by Crixus and Oenamus, two Gauls.

Rome underestimated the strength of the slave army and the first four Roman armies sent to subdue the rebellion, were defeated. Escaped slaves flocked to join Spartacus and his free army. Numbers soon reached over 100 000 and Rome was forced to start taking them seriously. The leaders were divided in their aims. Crixus wanted to invade Rome to recruit more soldiers, but Spartacus wanted to escape over the Alps to live a free life away from Rome. They split up, and Crixus with 30 000 men headed for Rome.

Roman citizens were terrified. An army of gladiators and slaves could cause chaos, together with Roman’s slaves, who were poorly treated by the Romans. Rumours of atrocities perpetrated by the slaves on other slave owners were spreading like wildfire. Their bad treatment was coming back to bite them! Another uprising in Sicily 60 years previously had taken two years to subdue.
