Ben Askren Passes on Calling Out Conor McGregor…Sort Of.

Ben Askren has been lighting up MMA social media since it was first reported he could be headed to the UFC, and now the galaxy class grappler has taken a verbal shot at Conor McGregor.

Following reports that the UFC and ONE Championship are working on a ‘trade’ involving Demetrious Johnson and Askren, the latter has exchanged tweets with several, UFC fighters. 

Now, “Funky” has also fired off this tweet at none other than Conor McGregor:

Obviously I have called out @TheNotoriousMMA yet, but you know he has way too much money to take one of the whippings I’m giving out. So why bother?
