Askren Jokes: ‘Maybe Dana Paid Rice $5k For Inside MMA snub’

“I jokingly said to my wife after the interview, ‘Maybe Dana paid Kenny $5,000 to try to make me look like an ass. That was my intuition: Why is he acting like this? Something’s gotta be up. But I still have no idea. I’m still dumbfounded by the whole thing.”

“Honestly, I think a lot of people were kind of happy that someone was finally speaking the truth, and all of a sudden I get cut off and I get censored – they’re really mad about that.”

In a recent interview with MMAJunkie.com Radio, OneFC champion Ben Askren discussed his recent stint on Inside MMA, during which he was kicked off the air for his anti UFC remarks.
