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.
Despite being undefeated, Askren’s “Funky” brand of fighting was never quite piqued the interest of UFC President Dana White. Which made this trade a bit of a shocker when it hit the proverbial newswire.

That said, the UFC is always looking for more “trash talkers” to move the needle, and Askren certainly fits that mold.
So, will it be, Khabib, Georges, Till or Wonderboy? Check out his interview from Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show below to see who Askren has in mind for his UFC debut.
