Recently, Helwani got involved in a back and forth with ‘El Jefe’ as the latter called the journalist ‘Bi*ch’ for his reporting on the Jake Paul and Dana White beef. However, Helwani lashed out at Danis and left no stones unturned to grill the MMA professional.

“Guys if you think life su*ks right now just think you could have begged for 3 years to fight an 0-0 YouTuber and 3 years later still not be popular enough or good enough to even be considered a worthy opponent for him. Imagine that. In other words, you could be @dillondanis.” Helwani Tweeted.

Hilariously, ‘Sugar’ has dubbed Helwani’s treatment of Danis as an act of ‘Murder’ as the premier reporter did his best to blast Danis.

“Speaking of murders. I read, I was reading on Twitter the other day and I didn’t think I could see a murder on Twitter… But I did.” O’Malley said.
