Jorge Masvidal is known as a no-nonsense person and he clearly has had enough of Ben Askren’s comments on social media ahead of their fight at UFC 239 next month, vowing to hurt the undefeated former One Championship and Bellator MMA welterweight champion… and any potential progeny.
Askren has been doing his best to get under the skin of Masvidal and “Gamebred” wants the back-and-forth to stop so he can get his hands on him as he said in a State of Combat interview.
“I just want to f--- him up. I don’t think anything of him,” Masvidal said. “I’m going to make sure his bloodline doesn’t reproduce or nothing after July 6. Extinction of the Askren blood by the Masvidal blood.
“I always thought he was a b----, but he just confirmed it for me and the rest of the world,” Masvidal said. “Every once in a while my manager shoots me an email that Ben said this, and half the time I don’t even respond because it’s a multitude of corny s---. Ben is not my chick, so I’m not going to go back and forth with this guy. I’m not going to be texting with him. I have enough problems texting back and forth with my chick. Now I’ve got to text with a dude on social media? That’s below my pay grade. They don’t pay me enough in this f---ing sport to mess around with this guy.”
Masvidal said he hasn’t been a fan of anything Askren has been doing in the lead-up to promote the fight but one thing he posted a few months back rubbed him the wrong way where “Funky” was mocking Masvidal by wearing a sailor cap. Masvidal responded by posting a picture of Askren posing with a belt and a thong:
“I just thought it was funny that he would say that [yet] he’s in a f---ing thong with the belt with his little princess face looking like a b---,” Masvidal said. “What the f--- is that about? You can’t throw [stones] from a glass house, but this guy doesn’t respect it. Don’t question my manhood, first of all, ever. Second, you’re a f---ing beta. You survived off I don’t know what.”
