Ben Askren has been a constant source of entertainment since signing with the UFC towards the end of last year. Taking to Twitter to troll almost every welterweight on the UFC roster. And not stopping with the welterweights. Conor McGregor and Jon jones just to name two, have been at the other end of Askren’s Twitter attacks.

One fighter who has featured a lot on Askren’s Twitter timeline, is Kamaru Usman, or as “Funky” affectionately refers to him, “Marty From Nebraska”. Following the lengthy online argument between Usman and Askren’s team mate Tyron Woodley, on Twitter yesterday, Askren joined the party.

The former Bellator and ONE Championship champion then shared a photo of Wikipedia, where Usman’s page had been updated to include Askren’s nickname for the Nigerian. Which did make me laugh.

Since that tweet, Usman’s Wikipedia page changed a few times, with variations of Marty from Nebraska but at the time of writing this, it was back to normal.

If you missed all the back and forth between Usman and Woodley, you can check out their exchange of words here.
