Gilbert Burns Takes A Cheeky Dig At Ben Askren

The No.1 Contender for the Welterweight Title apparently wasn’t amused by Funky’s take on the fight, and hence took a jibe at him. Gilbert Burns sent a reply to the same post, and indirectly highlighted Ben Askren’s most embarrassing in-ring episode. No prizes for guessing, it is indeed the 5-second KO defeat inflicted by Jorge Masvidal on him in 2019.

Durinho further stated: “Sometimes I don’t want to roast this guys but they ask for so here it coming the boom roasted in a second.

Ben Askren is quite active on social media and co-hosts a couple of weekly wrestling podcasts. So, we might witness a reply from his end as well. However, what carries paramount value right now is the official announcement of the Welterweight championship bout, which is expected to come at any moment.
