Speaking to MMA Junkie, he said: "I already know who's gonna win that one.

"Ben's a wrestler. Let's put it that way, right?"

He added: "So I think he gets knocked out in a boxing fight. But in an MMA fight, it's a different story."

"Hey, (Scott Coker), remember when your (welterweight) champ won a round against me? Oh yeah he didn't," he tweeted.

Askren, 36, retired from MMA following his submission defeat to Demian Maia in October 2019.
