Ben Askren roasts Dillon Danis in multi-part Twitter onslaught

Ben Askren, Dillon Danis

Ever since news of his move to the UFC surfaced, Ben Askren has been picking fights on social media with many of his peers in the UFC welterweight division. That said, he is not limiting his Twitter warfare to his rivals in his new division.

On Tuesday, the former ONE Championship and Bellator welterweight kingpin unleashed a multi-part Twitter assault on Conor McGregor training partner and Bellator MMA star Dillon Danis.

It was actually Danis who started this exchange by responding to one of Askren’s Tweets with a meme.

While Dillon Danis initiated this exchange, however, Ben Askren quickly took control.

“Dillon I know it went right over your head, but I know the only things you understand are acting tough and saying douchey things,” Ben Askren said in his first response to Dillon Danis.

“My personal favorite stupid thing you have said was that your average HS wrestling background would prepare Conor for [Khabib Nurmagomedov],” he added in a second Tweet. “Lololol that worked out really well. Great job Dillon.”

‘And lastly shut up for a while, stop directly copying your idol’s shtick,” he concluded. “You weren’t even the best at BJJ (Garry Tonon’s bitch) so maybe you could try to have some success at MMA.”

At this time, it doesn’t look like Dillon Danis has responded to Ben Askren, though it would certainly not be shocking if he did. Stay tuned for updates on this Twitter beef between the two polarizing stars.
