Following reports that the UFC is hoping to book a pivotal welterweight fight for its January 26th card in Anaheim, Ben Askren has delivered a stern warning to Kamaru Usman.

Recently it was reported that the UFC was hoping to book a fight between Usman and Colby Covington for UFC 233, with the winner advancing to fight champion Tyron Woodley (who is recovering from a hand injury and cannot fight at the January 26th event).

Askren, who is currently expected to fight Robbie Lawler at UFC 233, recently posted this heated message for Usman:
