Ben Askren Trolls Nate Diaz For Running Away From Jorge Masvidal's Fake Flying Knee

Ben Askren has trolled Nate Diaz for running away from Jorge Masvidal in the opening seconds of their bout at UFC 244.

Masvidal beat Diaz by doctor's stoppage to win the BMF title. The cageside doctor for the New York State Athletic Commission controversially halted the fight just before the fourth round after inspecting Diaz's cuts.

'Gamebred' repeatedly tagged Diaz on the feet and he even faked his trademark flying knee right off the bat.

But Stockton's own avoided being hit by running away. Well, that's how Askren sees it as he took to social media to mock Diaz.

"Dawg I thought he was a BMF he literally RAN!!! Should have just taken it like a man," he wrote accompanied with a clip of Masvidal faking a flying knee.

Of course, Askren was on the wrong end of Masvidal's knee back at UFC 239. The ex-Bellator champion, meanwhile, suffered his second consecutive loss when Demian Maia tapped him out last month.

He succumbed to the Brazilian's ground wizardry during their main-event bout at UFC Singapore.

The 35-year-old is considering retirement after his second professional defeat. Speaking on Ariel Helwani's MMA show, he said: "Retirement is definitely something I am considering.

"I would be lying to you if I said I was not. It's just a time-cost analysis. I have a lot of things to do in my life. I'm a really busy guy.

"I have a lot of things I'm passionate about, and I love. Not training specifically, but to and from setting stuff up, I'm probably spending about 30 hours a week on MMA related stuff.

"'Can I place my time better somewhere else' is definitely a thought process that's crossed my mind."

Askren's 1-2 since signing for the UFC, with his sole Octagon victory coming at UFC 235 against Robbie Lawler.
