Although it hasn’t officially been announced by the UFC, the latest addition to the roster hasn’t wasted anytime calling out his potential future opponents.
Following a straight up trade that would send one of the greatest fighters of all-time in Demetrious Johnson over to the Singapore based ONE Championship promotion, Ben Askren is looking to make things a little more interesting inside of the Octagon.
