Reports are coming through that Ariel Helwani was assaulted backstage at Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley ceremonial weigh-ins by Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy for “trying to stir shit”

Ariel Helwani has been doing great things since the departure from ESPN, reviving his beloved The MMA Hour Show which has been doing impressive ratings also he reinvented himself as the “Independent Helwani”

But as we just found out everything comes at a cost, all the times he has tried to cause controversy between fighters has backfired on him a couple of times as it has again now.

Ariel attended the Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley ceremonial weigh-ins where he was interviewing fighters after their face-offs he talked with Tommy Fury (Tyson Fury’s brother) and Anthony “Pretty Boy” Taylor where he appeared to be a bit more provocative than rest of the interviews.

Tommy Fury didn’t appear to be bothered by it at first at last during the interview but as reports have come through later on when Ariel Helwani went to record an interview with him he was greeted with an Angry Tommy Fury that wasn’t impressed by his antics where he proceeded to slap Ariel Helwani to where he ran off while crying.

We reached out to Tommy Fury’s team to see if they want to release a statement with regards to the incident but they refused to comment.

Ariel Helwani has also remained silent on the situation.
