The most wanted man in the welterweight division Jorge Masvidal has finally addressed the call outs of Ben Askren and Leon Edwards.
As we all know, Masvidal was the winner by KO in the second round at UFC London two weeks back, defeating Darren Till in the main event. Later on during a post fight interview backstage, Masvidal exchanged some words with fellow welterweight Leon Edwards, before exchanging some fists with the Birmingham native.
Ben Askren enters the mix after a recent post on Twitter claiming Masvidal was being a ‘chicken‘ and not signing a contract for a rumoured UFC 238 bout.
”Gamebred” responded via his Instagram account on Thursday, referring to Askren and Edwards as ‘sluts’. You can see his Instagram post and full transcript below.
”Hello everybody, I’m back stateside, enjoying my little vacation. And I’m coming back and man, I’ve got so much groupie love. I can’t believe it, I got these two little sluts, you might know ‘em or you might not. One’s from England, one’s from some suburb where it’s, I don’t know, I don’t give a f*ck, calling me out. One’s not in the top 10 and the other that is hasn’t got a victory in the UFC. Didn’t make the dude tap, Robbie Lawler, and didn’t put him to sleep, but you think you have a win in the UFC. Who are you fooling? You can fool the crowd, but you can’t fool me, playboy. Because when I seen you in the hotel, what did you do? You ran away like a little bitch when I tried to talk to you. And you were, ‘Aw, I wish you good luck, and we’ll talk after your fight,’ and I was pretty ready to slap you up if you said anything disrespectful. Thank goodness you didn’t. And you walked away. So what do I care to fight you or the other guy? I’ll let my management decide. You keep hitting me up all you want though, your little sluts, you know? (blows kiss). If I see you in the street and you talking though”
As you can imagine it didn’t take Ben Askren long to respond to the post.
Leon Edwards is yet to comment on the situation.
