Ben Askren's Latest Comments On Jorge Masvidal Are His Most Arrogant And Vain Yet

Ben Askren's Latest Comments On Jorge Masvidal Are His Most Arrogant And Vain Yet

Ben Askren feels responsible for the sudden surge in Jorge Masvidal's stock as a UFC fighter and wants credit for his rapid rise in popularity.

Masvidal stopped Askren in just FIVE seconds at UFC 239 and he's now in contention to fight for the UFC welterweight title, and for that, the ex-Bellator champion wants credit.

"I will acknowledge that I made him this popular. I brought the best in him, so it's fine, it's part of the game," Askren said.

"We were the most anticipated fight by far on the biggest card of the year. And it definitely wasn't because Jorge decided not to show up to two different press events. It was because I made it that way.

"Jorge can say I'm a dick, or whatever the hell he wants to say about me, but if he wasn't so rude, he should probably say, 'Thank you for making me a lot of money.'"

"Definitely the title, definitely Kamaru Usman interests me," he said. "He's got the title and that's what I want but he's always having injuries and things are happening.

"I want [Conor] McGregor. I want to break his face. I think that's an easy paycheck. He's got these cash symbols written all over his face for me. I just don't see it going his way if I'm honest with you."

But Dana White has shut down his money-making plans to fight the Irish superstar.

"You can't make ultimatums," the UFC president said. "Listen, we're going to offer him a fight, and if he accepts the fight, he does and if he doesn't, he doesn't."

Usman, meanwhile, appears set to face Colby Covington who dominated Robbie Lawler at UFC on ESPN 5.

Who do you want Masvidal to fight next? Let us know.
