We usually have seen Colby Covington as the outspoken Welterweight but this time the MMA veteran Ben Askren was the one to rost Covington on the social media.
Ben who hasn't fought in the UFC yet, is now talking trash to the former UFC interim Welterweight champion. Regarded as one of the best welterweights in the world, Askren, the former ONE FC and Bellator champion took a shot at Colby via his twitter on 10th September morning and said that Colby is a poor man’s version of Ben Askren.
Take a look:
Cmon @ColbyCovMMA is a poor mans version of me. Couldn’t accomplish in wrestling, got choked out by subpar Wallrey Alves and trash talking sounds like his IQ is 85(which it may be although I can’t confirm)! https://t.co/gJZpu4caP5

Askren’s is Tyron Woodley's teammate and friend, so despite being from another promotion, it's not very unusual for Askren to give Colby a little bit of his trash back on behalf of T-wood.
Surprising fact about it is that Colby Covington is usually the one who usually ignites the discussion but even after three days, Chaos has been silent on this one particular tweet. Hence, everyone is desperately waiting for Colby's response to this one.
Covington is trying his best to get Tyron Woodley to agree on fighting him at the UFC 230 event that's going to be held on the third of Nov. 3, 2018, and after submitting Darren Till at UFC 228, Tyron said that whatever is on the plate, he will take it, but the fighter has said nothing about fighting Colby at UFC 230. Whereas, Ben Askren was recently caught in a fight rumors with UFC's one of the greatest Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
