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.

McGregor’s Manager Talks Conor’s Future

Conor McGregor has remained a present force in the Ultimate Fighters Championship since defeating Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in January 2020. The Irishman made headlines earlier last week after UFC 249, which came when he made a tyrant of statements via Twitter. Nearly every competitor within the Lightweight Division was attacked by McGregor, showing the Irishman is desperate to fight anybody and reach a championship-level fight.

Conor hopes to compete against Justin Gaethje for the Interim Lightweight Championship Belt. Most are focused on the UFC Career of Conor McGregor, with others more concerned on his return to boxing. Details on who the Irishman is selecting throughout 2020-21 was revealed by his manager on May 12th.

The Manager of McGregor

Audie Attar provided multiple MMA news outlets with updated on Conor’s future in the Ultimate Fighters Championship. He remarked that Notorious will return to boxing in the future, with his primary concern right now being Mixed Martial Arts. Audie noted that McGregor hasn’t forgotten about boxing and plays to increase his weight by 2020, hoping to combat notable fighters like Tyson Fury.

The focus, for now, is obtaining a fight with either Tony Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov, or Justin Gaethje. Some believe McGregor isn’t deserving of a championship fight, with the Irishman previously retiring and then returning. He should fight through the ranks like any other competitor in the UFC. However, money talks and Conor brings in hundreds of millions for Dana White. That’s why he’ll continuously receive special treatment over other competitors.

Audie Attar remarked that either of his desired opponents hadn’t approached Conor McGregor. It’s suspected that Audie himself will have to start these delegations. All fighters in the UFC want to compete against Conor McGregor, with anyone who fights the Irishman earning $10 million or higher. This figure is substantially larger than what standard fighters like Justin Gaethje are accustomed to receiving. That’s why most analysts agree that Justin will select McGregor as his next opponent, with Khabib Nurmagomedov coming 2nd. There’s always the chance that Dana White will give Tony Ferguson a 2nd fight with Justin Gaethje before the new Interim Lightweight Heavyweight Champion can compete against McGregor or Nurmagomedov.

Dana White Breaks UFC Protocols

May 9th will mark a significant date for the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship, with multiple bouts being announced for an upcoming Pay-Per-View. One of these matches includes Justin Gaethje, who’ll be competing against Tony Ferguson. Justin wasn’t aware of the May 9th fight until it was announced publicly to supporters. This is a direct breach of UFC Protocols, which has upset Gaethje. Dana White didn’t provide the fighter with a choice, which is inappropriate when considering these men can lose their lives in the octagon. The UFC President didn’t believe it an issue, with Justin Gaethje previously being slated to compete against Tony Ferguson on April 18th. This would’ve been for UFC 249, which was ultimately cancelled because of the novel coronavirus prompting social distancing measured in America.

Justin Gaethje provided his insight regarding the unexpected announcement, speaking with ESPN reporters via videoconference. Justin mentioned that his immediate reaction was “What the Hell?”, which the UFC fighter being upset that Dana White didn’t follow standard protocols. Gaethje clarified that he understands the particular predicaments with the situation, which is why he’ll happily oblige with the May 9th fight. Justin Gaethje prefers to have a prolonged training camp, which won’t be possible this time around. He’ll be provided two weeks to hone MMA skillsets before competing against Ferguson.

Gaethje is determined to become the UFC Champion, which follows after winning three fights back-to-back. Formidable skillsets prompted him the opportunity to compete against Ferguson after Khabib Nurmagomedov backed down. This American fighter expressed that when competing for the world championship, you fight whenever and wherever the boss tells you. It should be mentioned that the three most recent bouts from Justin Gaethje saw him knockdown his opponents in the first round, getting knockouts each time.

Khabib Backs Down

The UFC Champion was forced to cancel his appearance at UFC 249. This forced decision followed after Khabib Nurmagomedov made multiple mistakes while travelling before the pandemic broke-out worldwide. He moved between America, Dubai, and Russia within two weeks. Vladimir Putin then announced that travel restrictions would be imposed for a prolonged period. Because of these restrictions, Khabib cannot compete. There’s the potential he’ll be stripped of his title for these mistakes.

Colby Covington Talks Down to Jon Jones

Colby Covington Talks Down to Jon Jones

The rivalry between Jon Jones and Colby Covington has continued throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This follows after the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion was arrested for drunk driving. Colby Covington took this opportunity to destroy Jones in a public manner, calling him a dirtbag and demanding that Jon would be better off in jail. These remarks follow after Colby Covington was speaking with Mike Heck’s Podcast. Called What the Heck – Chaos Edition, he expressed that his former roommate has become a steroid addict. That’s why Colby believes that Jon Jones drinks excessively and cheats on his wife regularly. Claims from Covington weren’t responded by the Light Heavyweight Champion, who won’t compete for the minimum of twelve months after this latest arrest.

Colby Covington has attended numerous podcasts from the virtual seat in the last several days. An additional podcast with Alexander Lee’s MMA Fighting, where Colby noted that we’re going through the worst pandemic is 100+ years, and this man decides to drive drunk. Covington mentioned that this behaviour is consistent with the Jon Jones he knew in college, where the champion would continually break the rules and not care about the consequences. It should be noted that Jon Jones has a significant number of charges, often relating to violence and drinking.

Colby then got personal to his former roommate, informing the Light Heavyweight Champion that he’s still a dirtbag. That you even cheat on your wife like back in college, that those steroids won’t make you feel any better and that you’ll never return to normal. Considering that Colby Covington lived with Jon Jones, it’s safe to say these remarks would be devasting for the champion to hear. Statements with Alexander Lee finished by Colby noting Jon Jones is a piece of shit and deserves to go to jail.

Previous Run-Ins

Most fans behind Jon Jones aren’t aware that he’s maintained multiple run-ins with law enforcement throughout his MMA Career. These law enforcement issues started long before his career as well. Considering this foolish man believes he’s the greatest fighter of all time, Jon Jones sure doesn’t portray the role like Muhammed Ali. Jones doesn’t stand for advocacy groups, or his fellow man like Ali previously did. No, the Light Heavyweight Champion is most concerned about his image. Similar to Floyd Mayweather Junior.

Dana White Purchasing Island for UFC Fights

Dana White Purchasing Island for UFC Fights

The Ultimate Fighter’s Championship has implemented every strategy possible to hold their 249th PPV Event. Their plans extended towards Dana White purchasing a private island, which would’ve allowed them to hold closed promotions. Fighters would’ve been flown to this island through Dana Whites private charters. Alterations in these strategies were enforced after multiple politicians, and large-scale CEO’s stepped in. This included governors throughout America, the Disney Corporation and ESPN. Following the involvement of these parties, UFC 249 has been terminated.

Dana White was priorly recorded by mentioning he was two days away from purchasing a private island. He expressed that infrastructure was already being manufactured and connections with international airports were booked. The problem under his outdated strategy was that international travelling in America is entirely cancelled. This means notable fighters like Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje and Donald Cerrone couldn’t attend these private venues. Dana White would contract fighters without recognizable names.

It should be mentioned that Dana White has continuously been defiant when tackling the COVID-19 Pandemic. It took him a prolonged period to allow employees to work from home. Implementing this measure was required after the American Government determined the UFC as Non-Essential. The defiant behaviour shown by Dana White saw its day, with Khabib Nurmagomedov unable to compete in UFC 249 against Tony Ferguson. This meant that the unstoppable fight was immediately stopped by Russian travel restrictions Trying to be more reliable than plague is just another foolish action from Dana White.

Who Was & Wasn’t Involved?

Multiple individuals were confirmed to appear at UFC 249. This included Bruce Buffer, who hasn’t missed a single PPV for Dana White is numerous years. Its shocked fans of the legend, with Bruce Buffer being more than eighty years of age. Joe Rogan has called Bruce Buffer a foolish man for committing to this event, with Rogan already confirming that he wouldn’t attend as a host. It’ll mark one of the 1st instances that Joe Rogan hasn’t attended a UFC PPV in 10+ years. These are the sort of changes being made during COVID-19.
