The Other Day at the UFC 235 media conference, Ben Askren and Kamaru Usman allegedly got to a little altercation backstage prior to the occasion. The 2 welterweights disputed the details of the episode together with Askren saying Usman jeopardized him Usman ostensibly said he was keeping things real considering that their on the web beef throughout the past couple of months. Afterward, over the weekend, the video of this episode was released showing that merely some words were said before security intervened, footage which Usman says he’s not joking around.

Askren disagrees.

Speaking with Ariel Helwani about Monday, Askren responded to this release of this movie, even calling the situation ‘“foolish ” also making pleasure of Usman for thinking that the video made “The Deadly Nightmare” look tough.

I couldn’t fathom why he was trying to act so tough and exactly what he tried to do or escape this situation. When it was intimidation, that’s freakin’ laughable… Look at his skinny jeans! You can’t be acting tough when you’re in skinny jeans and a scarf. ”

Askren and Usman’s feud dates back to December if Askren wanted to fight Usman to an interim welterweight title at UFC 233 to conserve the card as it lost its principal event. Ahead of that, Usman had been among those couple elite welterweights which Askren hadn’t called out because Askren knew Usman somewhat through wrestling and had respect for him. Today, Askren says Usman is only putting with this character because he offered to fight him 25, and the entire issue is ridiculous.

“Song, I wanted to fight with you. I don’t understand you want to repay this. I presumed that was a way to repay it. So I presumed it was ridiculous. ”

Now, Askren may get his h. Usman challenges Askren’s team-mate tyronwoodley for its welterweight title at 235, the same night Askren assumes on former winner Robbie Lawler. Should both fighters win or lose that evening, it’s hard to imagine the wouldn’t make an effort to establish a struggle between your 2 adjoining, and that will be just nice for Askren who considers he’s won the mental coict.
