Additionally he became host of ESPN+ show called “Ariel and the Bad Guy”.
Concerning his well-publicized UFC beef, it actually occurred in 2016. And basically, what transpired was that he, as a journalist, revealed to the public that the popular fighter Brock Lesnar was to participate (i.e. make his return) at a UFC event before the UFC themselves had. This pissed the organization, including head honcho Dada White, off. His journalist credentials were promptly removed, and he and the organization he was reporting on behalf of, MMAFighting.com, was banned from covering UFC events.
However, whereas Dana White claimed the ban would never be lifted, it was officially rescinded just two days later. Yet over a year later at the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight, according to Helwani the UFC had him blackballed from covering the event.
