During his tenure covering the sport, Ariel Helwani has disagreed with a few fighters. He has had his fair share of disagreements with fighters and this time his latest beef includes with UFC featherweight fighter Paddy Pimblett.

Pimblett labelled Helwani a “maggot” and a “rodent” on his own podcast, Chattin Pony, and claimed that Helwani utilised fighters for his personal financial advantage.

UFC president Dana White was a guest on Paddy Pimblett’s podcast and both took turns in bashing Ariel Helwani.

I hate all these journalists, especially the ones what earn off us. Ariel Helwani, in particular, loves earning money off fighters. Every decent job he’s had, he’s been sacked from. And now he’s just a bias content creator,” Pimblett said, with the agreement of White. “He hates on you, hates on the UFC, and he even hates on me now. It proper annoys me.

He uses fighters for clicks, uses fighters to make money, and then has the audacity to talk about the UFC and yourself, saying that they don’t pay the fighters enough. Get your dough out Ariel,” Pimblett continued. (Quotes via MMA News)

In order to support his assertion, Pimblett cited an earlier event involving Helwani. The 40-year-old asked Pimblett to postpone a paid interview he had scheduled in favour of an interview with Helwani for BT Sports. Later, Helwani used his show to express his displeasure with Pimblett’s manager Graham Boylan.

Paddy Pimblett is scheduled to take on Jared Gordan in the co-main event of UFC 282 which is scheduled to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In his previous fight, he took on Jordan Levitt where he defeated him via rear naked choke submission in Round 2 at UFC Fight Night 208 in July earlier this year.

The fight card is being headlined by Magomed Ankalaev and Jan Blachowicz, who will compete for the vacant UFC light heavyweight title. The title was previously held by Jiri Prochazka who injured his shoulder last month during a training session.
