ESPN’s Ariel Helwani is one of the top mixed martial arts insiders in the game. So ahead of UFC 236, Helwani sat down with Dustin Poirier, who is taking on featherweight champion Max Holloway in the main event, for some insight on their title fight. As it turns out, he may have got more than he bargained for.
Poirier was talking about a display in his home that is waiting for the addition of a UFC championship belt when he started scrolling through photos.
It was at that time that Helwani had an “aw shucks” moment and appeared to see something he wished he hadn’t.
Poirier even quipped, “Whoops, not that one.”
Here is the hilariously awkward moment:

The internet ran with the joke, indicating that Poirier accidentally exposed a scandalous photo to Helwani.
😂😂😂 he looks like he saw somthing that went against his morals
