How many times was Anderson busted for drugs in the last few years?? Not the GOAT!! Same goes for his buddy Vitor.
Peter Yan should be giving a chance future Bantamweight
The Champ and The Nose this podcast is top 5
Wow. DC is such a big COMPANY guy now. His justifications for matchups are now about popularity and money. Not what a typical fighter would say. Ariel is right in who is deserving of a title shot
Is Yan more recognizable than Aljo?? Never heard of Yan until he fought Faber.
2. Amanda Nunes
4. Demetrious Johnson
A Woodley that is focused and not worrying about his side hustles, can take Usman
Wow they can't find another fighter to interview? Wowww
I eye roll when people forget about Amanda Nunes for P4P goat. She beat Shevchenko, Tate, Cyborg, Rousey, Holm. Fo’ Real. Goat.
Ariel has DC on alot...
Please change the intro!!!!!so annoying..love the show after that
great episode you guys are to funny
Yea dc you are fat. And that's why you'll lose against stipe. Plus your old
First of all dc, an athlete doesn't include himself/herself in the goat list. Fans does. Dc, I love you but you are not in the goat conversation personally for me. Steroids or no steroids, ten title defenses means a lot. Winning titles in two different weight classes doesn't make you a goat. Dominating a weight class does when the pressure is on time after time. My list will be
I like DC. I enjoy Helwani but I can't get a sense of what type of guy he is. I enjoy he's intellectual and funny though
Ariel has some horrible takes this episode. Aldo 100% beat Marlon and deserves the shot
That feelin you get when you order 10 chicken wings but you get 11 lololol Only DC
Great show i look forward to every monday lmao
Ok dc. So u saying you hit stipe much more then he hit you ... all that says you couldn’t put him away that time. ,,, never mind them eye pokes .... stipe hit u few times in yo guts & you was done
Love their chemistry
Hey DC,,,,big champ,,bla bla,,, i like ur big mouth,,,,,,Jouu,,do U fight Fedor?
Ariel this is fun but I miss your old show too wish you could do both
I love dc
Ariel is an agenda pushing shill and an antagonist.
It seems like people have more of a problem with DC cheating by trying to gouge Stipe's eyes out thru both fights than the 'towel gate' cheat at UFC 210 weigh in. But yeah either way DC rep aint clean in peoples minds as he hopes
Dc is definitely top 2. his only loss that counts is the 1 to Stipe. Jones losses he tested positive for something in both so null and void. First person to ever win and defend 2 titles? cmon now. Thats NBDB History right there. I also feel Nunes should be in there. in All time greats not just womans goat. Shes finished and beaten so many Champions. And we may not ever see another woman do what she has done in MMA
DC- I don't know why ppl don't respect my body of work?
Daniel Cormier could’ve been the greatest Welterweight in history if cakes hit different
....You touched the towel DC
Literally the only good thing about Mondays
Dc you are not fat you may be a couple pounds heavier than you maybe should be but I think everyone has that problem
They need a show. Ariel & the
This show should be called "Cry and Crier"
Modelo made me fight a wall!
How can you not love DC the man is hilarious!!
Best podcast on YouTube.
1:00:39 lmao when he accidentally admits to holding the towel and ariel smirks
UFC wants Yan as Bantamweight Champion, Khabib as Lightweight. Then do a Russia/Fight Island card with them headlining.
Usman only gets beat by someone his size. McGregor would get mauled like the rest
People get it all wrong with ufc this is a sport and also a huge business its nit just getting into the wring and getting blooded its about getting payed and fame
This is my first time watching, I really like it
Cormier speaking facts. Dana has to make this happen in fight Island. Usman vs Masvidal and Conner vs Diaz Trilogy. This has to happen anything different will be a huge letdown by Dana White and he does not let the fans down. Lets get it done Dana!!
Gotta feel bad for Francis AGAIN. The man is very clear he doesn’t want to sit on the sidelines but it’s almost like the UFC doesn’t give AF. Jones fight is a good one. Tear up his contract and let that man get paid at Bellator
Is there nothing Ariel won't take credit for?
Ariel going to cry in the car
10:15 I can’t breathe
DC vs Fats Shaming 2
Ariel grew up actually thinking Hulk Hogan was his older brother. Lmao
I think the only reason dc isn’t considered top 5 ever even non ped is because of his 2 losses to jones
DC is by far the best analyst/ commentator
Idea for the bantamweight title. 1st card on fight island have a 1night tournament for the title. Cory, sterling, yan, Aldo, Cruz, Moraes.
dude dc is the best. he can be fat. still has cardio for days and destroy people in the octagon.
We all know the owl wants no part of
This is the start of a very promising segment .. its a different feeling compared to other MMA Chatshows ..
Knowledgeable, personal , funny , great chemistry, relatable... keep up the great work legends
They forgot Amanda as the goat
Nose vs Schmo!!!
gaethje v conor is the fight for the summer. and masvidal v nate 2 co main. gaethje has the interim belt, so he'll get ppv points. he's crazy if he doesnt take that fight asap. once in a lifetime opportunity, the real belt will always be there, conor won't.
DC is the jock and Ariel is like the kid who helped him with his homework
Brilliant viewing, keep up the good work
best duo ever!!!! DC is uncle phill ! haha
These two are gonna have a messy breakup in the foreseeable future
Not trying to be a hater but its questionable that Henry retired because he knew Yan would be his next fight and most dangerous. I dont blame him, who wants to fight a monster when u ain't getting your number.
Hmmm so what lol
Tyran woodly lol
Why isn’t it labelled DC & Helwani
This show is awesome
Amanda Nunes is #5 not Conor
Ariels THAT guy. Have you seen this movie? Yeahhhhh.....
Can't listen to DC, please bring back Mr. Sonnen
I disagree. I think he fell in and out of love with it
Such a good episode look forward to this every week keep it coming!
Once again hilarious and thank you
DC is Gold!!!!!
Aldo does not deserve a title shot
Love these guys, much less conflict than the when Ariel links up with the bad guy lol
i love DC so much as a person and hes right he is one of the GOATS i just wish he didnt eyepoke my boy stipe so much
I think fight island is DW’s “deal” he made with Mayweather at the basketball game awhile back and this just happened to line up with the pandemic.
they're cool but Rampage and Helwani were better (or funnier) together despite less professional because of rampage personnality.
Tony Ferguson lost because you didn’t want play the intro for him.
Love this show guys!
Ariel’s laugh is insane. Stab a goat in the throat while it’s making its goat noise. The result is Ariels laugh.
Haha DC has to put the video game away at the start.
Don’t sleep on Felicia Spencer ..... yea ... IIGHT
Love DC, wonderful character and happy vibe.
6:19 Naaa man
Havent watched this much ariel since he was one the mma beat years ago. This is amazing.
Ariel is the man. Shows real journalists still exist in this country.
DC is top 5 of all time, no doubt.
Ufc needs Alain Ngalani
Let there be a once a month/quarter/whatever 2 hour episode! Corporate Jake you are goofy!
how did you not include Fedor in your top 5 DC???!???
DC is definitely one of the best ever, only lost to 2 of the greatest and became a double champion
i dont know why dc thinks mma fans dont like him he is a great guy i cheer for him to beat stipe and ariel is great to been lisening too him for years good cemestry team
Can you guys keep putting this show on YouTube
Plz just give us the Colby usman rematch
DC common.... top 5 you put yourself in there but not Stipe... I get he’s your rival but he’s two time Heavyweight Champion and defended the belt the most... and you can’t put him in there?
You can t put a guy in the goat conversation if that guy was beaten by the other guy in the goat conversation , if you get what i mean
Best show in the business.
Love these guy's
