‘Colby Covington Just A Poor Man’s Ben Askren’

UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley successfully defended his title over the weekend with a dominant finish over formerly undefeated challenger Darren Till. With Woodley now seemingly being targeted for a bout against Colby Covington, the champion’s teammate has come forward with some heated words concerning Covington.

Former ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren is semi-retired from the sport of mixed martial arts. That being said, the former title holder still enjoys dishing it out over social media from time to time.

Taking to Twitter, Ben Askren has now come forward with a heated message for Colby Covington. Check it out below.

“Cmon @ColbyCovMMA is a poor mans version of me. Couldn’t accomplish in wrestling, got choked out by subpar Wallrey Alves and trash talking sounds like his IQ is 85(which it may be although I can’t confirm)!”
