UFC 235: Ben Askren Questions Whether Even Colby Covington’s Mom Likes “Chaos”
By FCF Staff
As Ben Askren continues to prepare for a fight with Robbie Lawler, “Funky’s” relayed he doesn’t have anything personal against the former champ. But, when it comes to another welterweight contender, Colby Covington, the situation’s rather different.
Askren will face Lawler on March 2nd at UFC 235, in what will be the former ONE and Bellator champ’s Octagon debut. Recently the decorated wrestler spoke with UFC.com, and while discussing Lawler and Covington, Askren said this:
“Robbie is just a nice guy … There’s not much bad to say about him, and one of the things is when you’re trash talking, you got to be genuine.”
“Nobody likes Colby. Literally nobody,” Askren said. “Not just in the fake world on social media and Twitter because social media and Twitter, that’s kind of a fake universe. It’s not really reality. But in the real world, nobody likes Colby. He doesn’t have friends. I don’t even know if his mom likes him. Nobody likes this guy, me included.
“I want to beat him up. Simple as that.”
UFC 235 will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
