Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Ben Askren has been a ton of fun in the lead up to his promotional debut against Robbie Lawler at UFC 235.
After being traded to the UFC from ONE Championship for Demetrious Johnson, “Funky” immediately began to terrorize the promotions 170-pound division.
Askren attacked the likes of Darren Till, Stephen Thompson and Colby Covington on social media, this before eventually signing on to fight former division champion Robbie Lawler at tonight’s UFC 235 event.
