Was that super necessary? Jorge Masvidal zings Ben Askren on Twitter
Askren has done a good job handling the fallout from his record-setting, five-second knockout loss to Masvidal last weekend at UFC 239, using humor to deflect the loss and getting out in front of the media and owning up to the loss.
After mostly keeping his mouth shut during the buildup to the fight, though, Masvidal is taking advantage of any and all opportunities to pour salt in the wound now that he answered Askren in the cage.
So it was, when Askren jumped on to Twitter on Friday.
Masvidal, for his part, wasted little time replying.
To which Askren attempted a comeback of his own.
If nothing else, Askren got some sympathy from others who have been in position. Like Joe Lauzon, who suffered a quick head-kick knockout to Anthony Pettis at UFC 144 in 2012.
Anyway, that’s where things stand for now. We’re certain this won’t be the last we hear from these two.
