Chael Sonnen has issued his own statement regarding the recent spat between Darren Till and Ariel Helwani. Darren is a MMA fighter and fights in the Middleweight division of the UFC. Ariel is the most notable journalist in the sport and has been in the MMA community for several years. Ariel and Darren both have a fun personality, and we’ve seen some amusing interactions between the two in recent years.


Recently, Darren criticized Ariel out of nowhere and said Ariel was the “worst thing to happen in MMA.” Helwani fired back at Darren and both had a back and forth on twitter. Ariel came out victorious in the online battle after he pointed out that Darren has only one victory since 218, same as the Bellator fighter Dillon Danis.

Both Ariel and Darren have a love hate relationship and before their online war of words, Darren revealed Ariel’s phone number through his twitter handle. He deleted the tweet, but Chael Sonnen has reacted to this and asked Darren whether he understands he can also face issues if he provokes someone. Chael tweeted about the incident and said: “Hey Darin, did you give Ariel’s number out? You have heard the expression mess with the bull get the horns, correct?
