Former Bellator and ONE champion Ben Askren are all set to fight Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239 which will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 6 July.

Ben Askren on Jorge Masvidal: I hope he stays away from me - Askren

Ahead of their anticipated showdown, both fighters had a scheduled media day which took place in Los Angeles to promote their fights. Ben Askren was present there, but Jorge Masvidal was nowhere to be seen, as apparently, he missed the flight. Askren was cheerful as always and declared himself as the undefeated in press conferences with UFC president Dana White raising his hand in victory. Jorge’s absence didn’t seem to bother Asken at all.

“It’s irrelevant to me. I’m here to promote myself. That’s it,” Askren said. “… I planned this to be my day off anyway, so it’s fine.”

“I don’t know. Maybe there was a car accident. I’m not sure,” Asken said. “Maybe IHOP didn’t serve him his pancakes in time. I don’t know what his problem is.”

Ben Askren is coming off of a controversial submission victory over former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler at UFC 235 back in March and on the other hand, Jorge Masvidal is coming off of a knockout victory over former title challenger Darren Till.
