Masvidal “Can’t Wait” To Break Askren’s Face

It is UFC fight week, and as we’ve seen in the past, they sometimes lead to rivals or opponents seeing one another in the same hotel.

This would be no different for Ben Askren and Jorge Masvidal, as the two welterweights would pass one another in a video taped for Askren’s fight week vlog.

Masvidal talked on the incident during pre-fight interviews, claiming Askren had “froze up” and lacked the “same energy” he had when talking smack about Masvidal while hyping up the fight.

Askren pays no mind to Masvidal, who gladly gave Leon Edwards a “three piece and a soda” following his win at UFC London earlier this year. Masvidal attempted to bait Askren, saying he’s excited to break the former Bellator and One Championship champion’s face, but Askren would not take the bait.

Masvidal would then be chastised by someone with the UFC, while Masvidal let it be known his hands were behind his back in a non-violent stance.

The two face off in a featured and highly anticipated main card fight on Saturday’s UFC 239 pay-per-view from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
