Recently, Helwani Tweeted, “I don’t know what’s sadder: The fact that it took @dillondanis six whole days to reply or the fact that he had to call upon the worst judge in MMA history, Douglas Crosby, to write that shitty material for him because he couldn’t think of anything witty himself.

“I mean, insipid? Really? If you’re gonna ask for a ghost writer at least make sure they use words that you know the definition to. That’s like rule 1,” Helwani continued.

Helwani captioned a screenshot of their conversation, “Anyway, it’s OK. It’s all love bro, right? Happy new year, fellas! Xo”
