The Askren-Hendricks saga continues!
Ben Askren has previously stated that he’s okay not signing with the UFC, however that hasn’t stopped him from talking trash to former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks any chance he gets.
Askren even went as far as to harass Hendricks in person, telling him to ask Dana White to set up a fight.
Hendricks spoke to MMAFighting to discuss why he wants to fight Hendricks, as well as Hendricks botched weight cut leading up to UFC 192.
“If you got to say one fight, you could pick any fight, regardless of organization or anything else, you have one fight — that’s my fight,”
“Man, because he’s a dummy, and I don’t like him.”
Askren didn’t mince words when asked about Hendricks botched weight cut for UFC 192 that landed him in the hospital.
“Do you really think it’s a good idea to show up 26 pounds over? You’ve got to be an idiot to do something like that. Sure, it might have worked once or twice before, but it’s definitely not the best way to do things.”
“Either he’s getting lazy or he just thinks he can do certain things that he can’t do or he’s just getting older. I don’t know what it is, but being 26 pounds over is ridiculous.”
