UFC perfectly roasts Ben Askren on Twitter after he asks about picture

UFC welterweight Ben Askren wants to be taken seriously, as would any fighter with two major championships to his credit about to make his octagon debut.

We can’t blame the former Bellator and ONE Championship titleholder for wanting to be more than a faceless “TBA” silhouette next to his first opponent, Robbie Lawler, on the UFC’s web site. It’s the little things, after all, that make a fighter feel respected and want to fight harder.

But, man, we also can’t stop laughing at the fix offered by the UFC’s social media team when Askren complained about it on Twitter. For an account that so often serves as a robotic cheerleader, we love this new sass (via Twitter).


Sorry, Ben, but you walked right into it. Surely you can appreciate a good zing, right? There’s no beef between you and the UFC. At least, not one UFC President Dana White will acknowledge until he’s sitting by the fireplace, puffing a stogie, laughing how he fooled people into thinking he wasn’t trying to get you beat.

The good thing is, you still get to show everyone who you are when you face Lawler at UFC 235. And now we’re looking forward to that more than ever.
