  • Ariel Helwani Joins Press Row By: Jordan Breen





    Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Ariel Helwani of Fox Sports 1 and MMAFighting.com.

    In a triple-wide edition of “Press Row,” Breen and Helwani discuss a diverse array of MMA topics, including the recent exploits of Conor McGregor in the Octagon, why Ireland has gotten behind the “Notorious” featherweight, how an elite Israeli fighter would be promoted by the UFC, Zuffa's immediate outlook in Canada, the future of the company on Canadian television in light of its expiring deal with Sportsnet.

    Breen and Helwani also dig deep into the potential of an MMA Hall of Fame, who would be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, whether or not fringe candidates by Brock Lesnar belong in a hypothetical HOF, why NBC's Brian Williams is such a beloved newscaster for both men and the difficulties of “delivering the news” in the MMA world.

    Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”

    Spike TV’s first-ever app includes a solid collection of Bellator MMA material.

    The app, which launched today, is free and available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. A version compatible with Android devices is expected to arrive soon, according to a Bellator official.

    The app includes more than just Bellator MMA content, as it will also include a first look at the premiere of the new season of “Bar Rescue,” among other things.

    “The Spike app represents a huge step in our evolution into a network delivering broad-based original hit series to our viewers -- anywhere, anytime,” Spike TV President Kevin Kay stated in a release.

    Some of Bellator’s most memorable fights will be available, including both meetings between Michael Chandler and Eddie Alvarez as well as Emanuel Newton’s spinning back-fist KO of Muhammed Lawal. Each week, the best fights from the most recent Bellator event will be added to the app.
