Askren Calls Khabib Out At 165 Pounds

Last week on Submission Radio, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov made it clear that he did not think high of new UFC signee, Ben Askren.

“He never fight in the UFC,” Nurmagomedov said of former Bellator and ONE FC champion Askren. “He has to fight in the UFC first of all. He has to show his levels, because I see how someone smash him in ONE FC. Somebody like smashed him in ONE FC. He just signed to the UFC and tried talk, you know.

“But now everybody tries to talk and promote these things, but you have to compete in the UFC, then we’re gonna see his levels.”

Askren, who has a world-class Olympic wrestling background has yet to lose while a professional fighter, and has decided to clap back at the UFC lightweight champion.
