Till On Askren: He’s a Pr**k
Darren Till went off on Ben Askren and half the welterweight division on Twitter a couple of days ago (you can read all those messages here).
While speaking to Ariel on The Ariel Helwani Show, Till opened up about the messages and particularly the ones aimed at Askren.
“There’s no issue. Ben’s a prick, I’m not and that’s it.
I’m not scared of Ben at all. I remember years ago when I was in Brazil, my wrestling coach Tim used to talk about Ben all the time and big him up. So I’ve known about Ben for years. Ben come to the UFC talking shit to everyone and a lot of people didn’t respond. So who am I not to respond to Ben and talk some shit?
“The thing is Ben doesn’t know how to take me because he tries to be all intelligent and I just talk all bullshit. And he doesn’t know how to react to it. So it is what it is.”
