Things are heating up between old rivals Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren. Ben tweeted his thoughts on their fight and Jorge’s assault. Masvidal has been hot water lately. He is rumored to have attacked Colby Covington outside a Miami hotspot when Covington had finished his dinner.

Jorge has been vocal about how he would fight Covington if they met on the street, and it looks like he took it a step further by mugging Covington. Masvidal constantly cites the comments about his family as excessive and forgivable. These comments undoubtedly played a role in Masvidal’s outburst.

Ben Askren took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the matter. Askren clearly thinks Masvidal’s actions were unnecessary, especially as he spent 25 minutes in the octagon with Covington doing what he wanted. Askren also called Masvidal a hypocrite when the latter spoke about Askren’s family during their fight.

“The few times I got beat up I just thought shit that I should train harder or use better tactics. Don’t let me sneak up on him and attack him in the street because I have anger/insecurity issues.”- Ben Askren

Masvidal chose not to reply to most of Askren’s tweets, but did reply to the hypocrisy part. Masvidal kept it short by simply retweeting a post explaining that the comments he made were not directed at Askren’s family.

Askren doesn’t seem to understand why Masvidal is retweeting this to him. It is unnecessary as Askren has thick skin.

After Askren’s humiliating 5-second destruction by Jorge Masvidal with a flying knee, no one will ever fail to associate the two fighters. To make matters worse for Ben, Masvidal even got a tattoo to commemorate one of the best moments of his entire career.

Ben expresses his thoughts on how youthful it was to even get the tattoo. He keeps talking The MMA lesson, “Oh god, it just looks like shit. It’s kind of like a teenager and you’re like, “Oh shit, I thought this was going to look a lot better, I thought this was going to be really badass, but it kind of looks dope.” He is rich. He can go to the best tattoo artist in town.”

He even empathizes with Masvidal as he understands how important that win was for the latter to tattoo it on him.
