Welterviktaren Ben Askren och forne dubbelmästaren Conor McGregor tjafsade nyligen på sociala medier. Under måndagens avsnitt av Ariel Helwanis MMA Show fortsatte Askren att attackera den irländske stjärnan.
That’s what I do on social media, I poke people. I think he probably spends a large portion of his day drinking, and so, a lot of his responses are kind of shenanigans, nonsensical, they don’t make a whole lot of sense. It was just like, I was getting annoyed — and listen, people in my mentions, they think I don’t get to have an opinion because I’m a fighter or something.
I get to have an opinion. I like MMA, if I want to have an opinion, I get to have an opinion, and my opinion is, a Dustin Poirier fight is a good option for Conor, Conor should shut up, stop trying to act too good for it — take the fight, take a fight, take any fight, we don’t care.
We just want to hear you shut up on social media and actually take a fight. I mean, give me a damn break. It’s been a year? More than a year? Before that, another year. It’s like, come on man. Get in there and shut up. No more Tweets let’s fight already. Conor can Tweet. He just can’t Tweet about fighting anyone without fighting, or saying he’s too good for fighting anyone without hopping in there. So he can Tweet about whatever he wants. Just not about saying, “I’m tough I’m gonna fight,” unless you actually fight.
McGregor gick senast match när han mötte Nurmagomedov under UFC 229 för snart ett år sedan och förlorade via submission i den fjärde ronden.
