Bellator Champion Ben Askren, UFC Boss Dana White Do Battle Over Twitter

Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren disagreed with UFC president Dana White’s recent talk of drug testing in MMA.

Well, as you might expect, White didn’t let Askren go with just a warning. Instead, the brash boss of the Octagon fired off this through his Twitter account.

When ambien can’t sleep it takes Ben Askren. The most boring fighter in MMA history. I would rather watch flys (expletive). Ben makes (Jon) Fitch look like Wanderlei Silva!!!

White’s comments were in response to Askren’s remarks via his own Twitter page.

The USOC random tests Olympic athletes in all sports. Dana saying testing his fighters would be impossible is a bold faced lie. Just making a statement about level playing field. I didn’t say it wouldn’t be expensive just that it is not impossible. Glad you know my name now. Before I was just the bushy haired wrestler.

With White’s comments, it wouldn’t seem that Askren is on the radar of the UFC. Askren is a former Olympic wrestler and undefeated MMA fighter.
