The historic trade between ONE fighting Championship and Ultimate Fighting Championship has been finalized as the UFC has traded former pound-for-pound no.1 fighter Demetrious Johnson for Ben Askren of ONE.
This is a big deal for fans, as they have always wanted to see Ben compete in the UFC with a legit contender. Ben signing with UFC offers an opportunity for MMA fans to watch the mouth-watering clash between Askren with the likes of Khabib, Conor, Colby, Till etc.
34-year-old Askren, a former two-time NCAA wrestling champion has had his fair share of beef with UFC president Dana White when he called Askren “the most boring fighter in MMA history” and also blocked him back then.
However, even though Ben Askren has signed with the UFC, Dana White still hasn’t unblocked him. Askren recently appeared on The Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show and he said that it’s rude that Dana hasn’t unblocked him on Twitter, to which Ariel jokingly said that he and Askren have something in common.
Earlier, Ben also shared a screenshot where he showed Dana White blocking him.

What do you guys think? Do you think Dana White is going to unblock Askren anytime soon or will the beef between the two continue?
