PostSubject: ariel helwani ban lifted by the ufc   Tue Jun 07, 2016 10:49 am

fter a conversation with UFC officials Monday night, a credential ban on reporter Ariel Helwani, photo journalist Esther Lin and video journalist E. Casey Leydon has been lifted.

MMAFighting.com is appreciative of the fact that the UFC was willing to rethink its stance, however, we respectfully disagree with the UFC's claim that "recurring tactics used by [Ariel Helwani] extended beyond the purpose of journalism."

SB Nation and MMA Fighting will continue to stand behind Helwani's work and the contributions of the rest of the employees on the staff.

MMAFighting.com would like to sincerely thank all the fans, media and fighters who supported us during this time.




The full UFC statement is below:


Following a conversation with the editorial team at SB Nation, UFC will not prevent MMAFighting.com from receiving media credentials to cover live UFC events. We respect the role the media plays in our sport and beyond, including MMAFighting’s ability to report news. However, in our opinion, we believe the recurring tactics used by its lead reporter extended beyond the purpose of journalism. We feel confident our position has now been adequately communicated to the SB Nation editorial team.

UFC’s goal as the world’s leading mixed martial arts promotion is to cultivate interest in its world-class athletes and events, and deliver for the fans. We will continue to introduce this sport and its athletes to new fans across the world, and we will do so by working alongside media across all platforms

Rolling Eyes

he broke news on a fight how is that extended beyond the purpose of journalism??

glad that the ufc got this figured out because it was a terrible thing to do to any journalist no matter how big or small they are.

From what I understand it was a Fertita over reaction, with Dana carrying out the "punishment"... or at least that's what Helwani felt was happening.

yeah ariel mentioned that in the video and it was pretty interesting to hear him say that. he eluded to the fact that he felt like dana didn't want to do it but was forced to do it.

even though right off the bat we all assumed it was typical dana antics
