Ben Askren rips Dillon Danis in recent Twitter clash: Stop copying Conor McGregor’s schtick

Ben Askren’s UFC signing has made a lot of noise in the MMA world. For his part, “Funky” went on to stoke the flames through a recent tweet, goading the UFC to make a big deal of his arrival through an official announcement.

This was met by a response from Bellator fighter and Conor McGregor’s training partner, Dillon Danis.

Like the social media savant that he is, Askren made sure that it would not be too smart an idea to start things up with him.

Askren also went a tad bit personal, first attacking Danis’ role in McGregor’s preparation for Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, then proceeded to lambast Danis’ jiu-jitsu skills.

In light of his UFC entry, the undefeated Askren already called out other marquee names such as Georges St-Pierre, the Diaz brothers, and Khabib Nurmagomedov. He did, however, excluded McGregor from his list, stating the Irishman “has way too much money to take one of the whippings” he will be dishing out.

Askren will have a chance to prove his worth since he will be matched up with a top-five contender in his debut, according to UFC president Dana White.
