And this has left the former ONE championship Welterweight champion in a funny situation. He took his frustration to twitter last day and posted the following tweet.

“Hey @ufc are you gonna make an announcement?  You are like that guy with a GF who’s embarrassed to tell his buddies even when everyone knows!  Ha ha ha you know you love me,”

The 34-year-old Askren is one of those fighters who has been staying away from the UFC till now. He holds a professional record of 18-0 to his name and was 6-0-1 in ONE Championship. Prior to his spell in ONE, he had also spent some time in Bellator where he piled up wins.

After the news about the historic trade deal broke, Askren has been busy calling out all the major fighters from the UFC. While he has received heat for the same, UFC is yet to make an official statement about his entry into the promotion.
