Ariel Helwani Tweets Support For Those Impacted By Storm Ophelia

One of the MMA world’s most well-known names has voiced his support for those caught up in storm Ophelia, which has been battering Ireland since Monday morning. 

Originally effecting southerly areas, the storm has now moved north as the afternoon has progressed with the ex-hurricane set to effect the entire country. 

Ireland’s meteorological service, Met √Čireann, have put in place a nationwide status red weather warning and urged the public to stay indoors for the duration of the storm. 

With such devastating weather hitting the country, Helwani, an MMA journalist with a close connection to Ireland given the rise of the UFC’s biggest star Conor McGregor, has tweeted his support for those impacted by the storm. 


Another renowned fighter hailing from Ireland Paddy Holohan provided a tongue-in-cheek response to the Canadian almost immediately. 


According to Met √Čireann, this is the type of weather anyone based in Ireland should experience on Monday nigh:

“Continuing stormy this evening with occasional showers, but winds from the southwest decreasing to strong overnight. Showers becoming well scattered. Mainly dry later tonight.”
