Publicerades den 22 feb 2021
Daniel Cormier & Ariel Helwani are back in your lives to recap Derrick Lewis showcasing his power with a record-tying knockout of Curtis Blaydes. With the heavyweight title picture a little murky, how close is Lewis to that opportunity? Where does the winner of Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Cyril Gane fit in? Leon Edwards finally has a fight, Colby Covington still does not & Kamaru Usman seems to have rescinded his call out of Jorge Masvidal... The guys break down all things at welterweight.

  • The gayest thumbnail yet.

  • Who's DC? Isn't he the guy Jones kept beating?

  • Every time Ariel introduces DC he always points to the wrong side

  • Colby should fight Durinho this year, but he only wants to fight bums! Only wants easy wins, lawlers and woodleys

  • dc, you gotta make a statement about the carano situation. you are not a coward, right? lol.

  • fade in.

  • Vitamin A in sweet potatoes.

  • Donuts rule .

  • Say Happy Birhday .in kurgy.

  • Iv played football at a good level, highest level when I was young and semi pro (paid) after being out for four years through injuries. As much as I love khabib he can't play footy 😂

  • Love how he responded to Joe’s direct inquiry as to what he’s gonna do after he’s done fighting. “Not really thinking about plan B right now, more focused on plan A”

  • This is the best MMA show, PERIOD! Their rewarding interactions confirm they are both masters at broadcasting fundamentals.

  • 34:32 DC's reaction 😂😂

  • Francis respecting his power doesn’t necessarily mean has more power than Francis, 😳 neither does having more knockouts. Most of Derrick’s KOs come from his ground and pound.. 4 out his 12. are one punch. 7 out of Francis’ 10 are one and done. His knockouts equal the amount of fights Francis has in his entire UFC career. I understand you got caught up in the moment because that’s not sound analysis coming from you champ...

  • I sometimes wonder how good Ariel's basketball skills really are too..why doesn't he accept the challenge from the Schmo? I don't actually have any sense of how good the Schmo is..but, Ariel's credentials sounded like they implied he'd be well above average..though I don't know that either. Why act like the Schmo doesn't exist either..you know what that looks like..I mean, you cover that kind of drama regularly and have for years. "Who is this guy?", or "Who does he think he is?" are sentiments that have been expressed, I'm guessing, in private. The Schmo is already better liked among fighters - though less well respected, obviously. Just pick something you can beat him at and compete in that domain. I don't think he'd mind.

  • I’d listen to these guys doing podcasts every day . Don’t even have to talk about MMA

  • ffs i thought demolition were on hahahahahaaha

  • But DC last week said Usman Masvidal is where the money is lol

  • Dana cormier got it 😂

  • Khabib is way too old to play professional football, it's not mma. Those guys pique at 27-29 and retire around 34. 32 is way too old to be starting. Not to mention wrestling doesn't translate there at all.

  • DC's awesome. Incredible Champ. Great work

  • BLAYDES got set up and LEWIS timed it perfect .i still dont think hes that good just has lots of power ,i bet he loses his next fight.

  • GSP was a true welterweight and moved up for a title shot and champ champ legacy... I can’t believe no one is pushing that for Khabib. He would whoop marty

  • DC with the stoneface talkin bout 50 to 40🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣👍🏾


  • DC is a great and humble man. Respect to him for saying Stipe is the GOAT of heavyweight 💪🏼

  • The towel shot has me dying laughing!!!

  • 2nd best show on youtube. 1st is Chael Sonnen’s YT channel

  • 2:10 hahahaha DC ma man!!!!! hahahaha..

  • Ariel you dumb dumb. Why would Colby in his position take the fight on short notice and lose his spot in the rankings!!!

  • You’re wrong Cormier. Kabib absolutely needs to move up and fight Colby or Usman if he wants to be considered one of the greatest. If he really wanted to test his skills he would move up and fight someone that isn’t way past their prime like GSP. Nobody knows how good he is against another great wrestler. All his fights are against stand up fighters. He is absolutely not the goat yet! Until we see him fight another great wrestler

  • Ariel with the haircut jokes 🤣😂 I actually died

  • Colby vs Masvidal makes more sense. And the winner is the #1 contender.

  • Does Ariel Just never point to DC on purpose now? Or is it set up for him to always get it wrong?

  • Love DC but Ariel always annoying and a hater, chip on his shoulder or just a natural born hater

  • Animal and Hawk nice

  • Ariel giving Jurassic Park Dr. Ian Malcolm vibes

  • Love DC...Helwani is my least favorite mma leech. There are youtubers much better at the mma game.

  • Man herb yelled out stop stop before diving in, good man why would you put yourself in the way of a full flight lewis. Blades signed the contract

  • Didnt DC called out Brock, seconds after beating Stipe, then became HW champ??

  • Boss Show

  • It's not a Tuesday if DC & Helwani aren't part of it. DC's look when Ariel said if you fought Lewis in February, you'd be gone😂😂

  • If Stipe loses to Francis he'll need a year off because it will be a brutal KO

  • I support gina

  • “It’s awful!” 😂

  • ariels shoulders at 1:58 compared to rest of show LMAO

  • Best show! Look forward to it every Monday.

  • The heartbreaking aftershave counterintuitively cure because chair cosmetically receive beneath a kaput hacksaw. panoramic, amused bulldozer

  • "say the line Ariel" Ariel: Hogwash

  • Crazy this channel only has 851k subs.

  • No mention of Phil Hawes? Man that fight was insane


    • Jre is popular because of the guest 😂

  • Canelo is fighting a guy who hasn’t fought in 2 years and is coming off a loss.

  • DC is always ragging on Ariel

  • ariel, you may not understand why colby aint fightin cause you havent fought in your life. i dont specially like colby but if dc is explaining you why doesnt he take the fight in short notice, understand it and shut up

  • Ok Helwani the origins of basketball had no dribbling. So respect the ancestors and the game. Capitalism has transformed the game into sport with the goal of making money. The origins of basketball are to play to the death, literally. And it was the captain of the winning team that was put to death. B/c that was true honor for your people.

  • Downvotes for Helwani

  • I love the synergy of DC being so likable and Ariel the opposite.

  • Ariel “The Chef” Helwani.

  • “Usman is too small for 185” -DC Usman: largest welterweight in the ufc

    • @Ben Bray Usman easily weighs over 205 himself. Darren Till was a huge welterweight that moved up and walks around 200+ and Usman is bigger than him

    • His style of wrestling and controlling fights isnt gonna be easy against guys who cut from 205lb plus for 185.

  • DC says "right?" about 75 times

  • Best Show in the world.

  • Lewis still can't tussle with Stipe, Bones or Francis. Even Gane would smoke him

  • Daniel has definitely lost weight, maybe training for a Jones fight at heavyweight??!!

  • Check out Khabib's goal against retired pro's. Quite the strike 👌

  • DC is way too nice. I swear if I was him some of the stuff Ariel says, he’d be getting smacked

  • Why is no one talking about Lewis’ line to overeem telling him “he’s already oiled and greased up for him”.. a few days after telling him he’s coming for his cheeks... quotes too good to ignore

  • So DC still not taking responsibility for his loses to Stipe? LOLOL Good Lord

  • It should just be Colby-burns Colby already beat woodly who was ranked below him why should he take another fight against another lower ranked opponent ? Ariel is just a hater

  • The ultimate fighter coaches need to be Colby and Jorge, it’s wayyyy better than usman being involved. The story behind Colby and Jorge is much deeper than 2 guys that just dislike each other wayyyyyyyy better for tv

  • I think Leon messed up by not fighting Wonderboy (not that I know whether or not the UFC ever offered it, but he did say he didn’t want that fight). That fight might’ve been less hyped than Khamzat (not checking the spelling lol), but it made more sense at the time and would’ve obviously been better than what’s happened.

  • "I don't want to see him squatting on the spot" That's easy for us spectators to say. If we consider and try to imagine all the work the top fighters have put in to get to that Nr. 1 contender spot, it's kinda understandable that the only fight they're looking for is the title fight. On the other hand, not fighting for a whole year because of that, is too much imo.

  • It sounds like dc making excuses to me

  • Ben Shapiro and Ariel Helwani treat Gina Carano different after canceled by hollywood

  • Bruh Ariel threw this man under the bus about using the towel 😂😂😂

  • I’m a huge Colby fan but I think burns presents all sorts of problems for him. He doesn’t have the power Usman has

  • DC shaking his head like he don't know he ragdolled Lewis.....hahahah

  • Admin! Upload in higher res..thanks

  • Both of these dudes are trippin. Derrick and Francis stood there. He literally threw 3 more strikes than Francis for a total of 3 shots thrown.

  • Wonderboy Vs Covington

  • Daniel "Cheat de Scales" Cormier :-)

  • honestly, these guys taking shots at each other and having fun with it is a treat to watch/listen to!!!!

  • 34:41 hahahahahahahahahahah ahahahahaha hahahahaha hahahaha I'm on the floor hahahahah

  • Dc joined Ariel to protect Helwani from Bully fighters ...ie Quinton Rampage ..

  • Ariel banging on about squatting and yet he is the one backing the biggest squatter in the division...Leon Edwards.

  • Not buying masvidal but I'd buy Colby Vs Usman 2

  • FREE Ariel Helwani !!!!!

  • 34:32

  • Leon turned down Wonderboy in December and now Colby do the same thing to him. That is karma for you

  • Dc wake up ,, Jon Jones in next in line to HW strap

  • Dc have every quality that attracted people’s to listen him.

  • Ariel such clown. Why would Colby take that fight on short notice 🤦🏽‍♂️

  • I know it’s Ariel’s personality but when he says some stuff dead seriously and you’re not sure if it’s a joke or not, is very frustrating. He also a lot of times doesn’t say something like ‘I’m just kidding’. Good thing DC is there to call him out on this stuff

  • DC's face becomes so bright whenever Khabib topic is there 😁 But seriously, I think if DC or coach Javier convince him to comeback to fight, Khabib would back.

  • Please stop asking Ariel to point the right way, he is doing it on purpose! With Ariel and the bad guy podcast he always points the right way.

  • 34:30 Ariel the savage

  • Where’s the time stamp guy

  • Love this show, they are so good together💖

  • DC keeps playing the old man card like he didn't beat Rumble twice. Sheesh this guy🤣

  • Ariel always points the wrong way to DC at the start 🤣
