Helwani viciously roasts Darren Till, Costa Reacts

Ariel Helwani might be known for his journalism in MMA but he’s also become somewhat of a roast master as of late.

MMA’s top journalist often gets into contentious exchanges – but as of recent he’s started talking back. One of his recent victims is UFC middleweight Darren Till.

Both Helwani and Till are known for exchanging banter during podcasts, interviews, or random social media interactions. This time, the Scouser replied to Helwani’s photo on Twitter saying that the Canadian is “the worst thing to happen to MMA.”

Helwani then asked if Till is still salty because he won’t cooperate with his newly shady crypto business.

“Still mad I didn’t want to sign with your fugazi crypto “company”?” Helwani said.

Fugazi is a slang term used to describe something fake, inauthentic or otherwise sketchy.

“Don’t be jealous because I’m the founder of one of the fastest rising tech companies in the world bruh” Till replied.

This is when Helwani turned into Heelwani and unleased the ultimately merciless roast.

“I’m just jealous you have as many wins as Dillon Danis since 2018 mate”

The rarely out-of-words Till was seemingly stunned by the vicious reply. He initially replied doxing Helwani and releasing a photo of Helwani’s business card with his phone number, but he deleted the tweet shortly after.

Reacting to the savage reply, the UFC’s meme lord Paulo Costa posted a screenshot of the banter and said that he wants to see it settled in a fight.

It is not the first time that Helwani brutalized someone online. Last October, Helwani slammed former UFC fighter and podcaster Brendan Schaub for plagiarism, paying guests to go on his show, and coercing guests to do multiple shows with him.

Another victim of Heelwani is the aforementioned Dillon Danis. Back in January, Danis was a guest on Helwani’s The MMA Hour. The pair talked about Danis’ beef with YouTuber Jake Paul.

During the show, Helwani appears to be fed up with the way Danis carried himself. And after the show, he launched a barrage of vicious tweets that might be career-ending to the 2-0 pro fighter.
