Ben Askren Roasts Colby Covington: ‘You’re Losing Your Gimmick’
The war of words between Ben Askren and Colby Covington continues to be waged on social media and it’s the former ONE Championship champion who has taken the latest shot.
This past week, Covington told the Ariel Helwani MMA Show that no comission would ever dare sanction a fight between him and Askren.
“Let’s be honest. No commission would approve this fight,” Covington said. “I mean, he’s not even ranked in the top one-hundred so it would be a slaughter.
Askren seemingly saw what Covington had to say and responded to the former interim UFC welterweight champion via his Instagram.
“Yo, I know I just made a picture post about this, but I was laughing,” Ben Askren said via his Instagram page. “I was laughing to myself and I had to share this with you.
“Colby is so dumb. Go back and see my previous post and see that he said that no commission would sanction me fighting him. And I was thinking about how stupid he has to be to believe that there’s actually someone else that stupid to believe his lie.
“I mean, can you imagine?” If you take Colby’s IQ and cut it in half, we’re in the single digits. That is how stupid he must think some fans are. Because I can’t think of anyone I’ve ever met in my entire lifetime that has such a low IQ that they would actually believe what he is saying.
“Colby, you’re losing your gimmick. Please tell us something that’s slightly believable…and maybe go back to school so your IQ goes up at least a couple points.”
