Is this a subtle way for Ben Askren to get back at Bellator for them releasing him after he dominated their welterweight division for years? Maybe. It’s also possibly as true for all I know. I like Askren. I think he could be the UFC champion right here and right now, but they didn’t sign him, so that’s pretty funny. Now Askren is letting it hang loose on Twitter. Love this guy.
You have to admit, this fight came together pretty quickly for the PPV, eh?
