UFC 235 seems promising as the main card is stacked with good fighters with two title fights and the long-awaited debut of Ben Askren in UFC.
Previously there were talks that UFC will never sign Ben Askren due to the hate UFC President has for Ben Askren. But the last year’s trade-off of Demetrious Johnson and Ben cleared off the smoke.
Ben Askren recently retweeted an old tweet of Dana White with a caption stating, “I hope he can stay awake March 2nd“.
The tweet dates back to 2012 and in that tweet, Dana White had called Ben Askren a boring fighter.
when ambien can’t sleep it takes Ben Askren. The most boring fighter in MMA history. I would rather watch flys fuck”.
I hope he can stay awake March 2nd 😂 https://t.co/dVyuOWNSrC

Ben Askren keeps on saying that Dana White doesn’t like him. Also during the post-fight press conference at UFC 230, Dana White said,
“We (Ben and Dana) just talked, this guy thinks I hate him. If I hated you, why would I do this deal? I’m the one who did this deal, I’m the one who came up with this deal. This was my idea. Why would I do this if I hated you so bad and didn’t want you to be here?”
Do you really think Dana White hates Ben Askren?
