Ben Askren And Phil Baroni Verbally Spar On Twitter

December 5, 2013 8:34 am by Jim Chadwick

Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we might finally get our superfight… no more arguing with your friends over who would beat who; no more crossing your fingers, hoping that these two MMA giants eventually meet in the cage – the wait is over.

Phil Baroni and Ben Askren are (probably) going to get it on.

Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly a match that the masses are crying out to see. But seeing as how Baroni started the smack talk on Twitter before the ink on Askren’s ONE FC contract was even dry, it looks like we’re going to see these two in the cage, like it or not.

Oh, how wonderful technology is. Thanks to the fantastic invention that is the Twitterverse, or the Twatersphere, or whatever the heck it’s called,  we don’t have to miss a single solitary moment of Ben Askren and Phil Baroni’s verbal sparring session:

@FrontRowBrian if ya didn’t know, now ya know Busta @ONEFCMMA ‘s Best Welterweight!

@FrontRowBrian @ONEFCMMA @Benaskren I was beating up Olympic wrestlers since 2001 and silver medalist at that

@philbaroni @FrontRowBrian @ONEFCMMA ha Phil you would go cry in the bathroom to your GF again after I finished abusing you.

— Ben Askren (@Benaskren) December 4, 2013

@Benaskren @FrontRowBrian @ONEFCMMA Ha ha ha Kids got jokes and shit

@philbaroni @FrontRowBrian @ONEFCMMA wasn’t a joke you seriously cried to your GF in a bathroom. It was embarrassing to even watch!

Links to the video of Phil Baroni doing beach-side workouts can’t be far behind. God help us all.

By the way, the Olympic wrestler that Baroni had previously “beat up” is Matt Lindland. Which is slightly confusing, seeing as how Lindland won both fights. But hey, what do I know.

Baroni currently sports a rousing 15-17 record. Askren sits at a stellar 12-0.

Stay tuned to for any future updates to this story – we all know that these two still have plenty more to say.
