Ben Askren Calls Conor McGregor A 'Drunk A**hole' In Twitter Feud

Two of UFC's loudest mouths Ben Askren and Conor McGregor have started arguing on social media with Askren calling the Irishman a 'drunk a**hole.'

On Wednesday Askren took to Twitter to attack McGregor claiming the Irishman didn't have the desire to train and that his best days were behind him.

McGregor replied to ask why the former ONE champion was being 'so serious.'

Askren, who has only had two fights in the UFC so far with a record of 1-1, then responded but he took the feud to a new level by calling McGregor a 'drunk a**hole' and referring to a recent incident when 'the Notorious' seemingly hit an older man in a Dublin pub in an alleged unprovoked attack.

McGregor's last fight was last October when he lost in four rounds to Khabib, which came after a two year sabbatical whilst he tried his hand at boxing.

The former two weight champion tweeted after Khabib's win last weekend against Dustin Poirier that he wanted the rematch in Russia.

Despite Dana White suggesting McGregor would be in line for a fight should Tony Ferguson not be available the Russian's camp has ruled out both those fights, instead focusing on a super fight with Georges St Pierre.


Askren, who is just as known for his talking out of the ring as his ability in it, was made to shut up in his last fight at UFC 239 in July.

The 35-year-old attempted a takedown right from the start of his fight with Jorge Masvidal but the Miami native saw it coming and hit Askren with a jumping knee and knocked him out in five seconds, the quickest finish in UFC history.

Are you on Askren or McGregor's side? Or would you like to see both men get beat up?
