Ben Askren wants to fight Kamaru Usman, Jorge Masvidal among others | Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show
- Published: 18 March 2019
- UFC welterweight Ben Askren joins Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show to discuss his time with the UFC so far and why he seems to be starting beef with multiple fighters. Askren refutes Helwani’s theory that he is the odd man out in the welterweight division and lists off a bunch of fighters he is willing to take on next, including Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington, Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal (1:54). Askren says Masvidal does not deserve a welterweight title shot after his knockout win and suggests that the direction the UFC could go is pinning Leon Edwards as his next opponent after their backstage fight (5:33). Askren reacts to Till getting knocked out by Masvidal and breaks down what Darren did wrong to lead to his loss (7:35). Ben would really like to either fight in Chicago on June 8 or during the card during International Fight Week (12:51). Askren talks about his feud with Dillon Danis, expresses how easy it is to roast him and if there is a chance they will square off (15:24). Ben didn’t expect Kamaru Usman to beat Tyron Woodley for the title, but since Usman can call out anyone he wants now, Askren states his cases as to why he should be Kamaru’s next opponent (17:36).
