ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren is fed up with Luis Santos, and he’s not staying quiet about why the pair’s fight fell apart the day it was supposed to take place in Singapore at ONE: Pride of Lions.
Askren (14-0, 1 NC), a former Bellator champion, said the strange behavior from his opponent began back in the summer, after their competitive first meeting ended with an anticlimactic ‘no contest’ due to a first-round eyepoke.
“So ONE FC asks him, let’s fight in June,” Askren recounted on a video he posted Friday morning to Facebook. “I say yeah, let’s fight in June. He says, ‘no, my eye.’ ONE offers him a fight in July. He says, ‘no, I can’t, my eye.’ I say okay, fine. They say September. I say lets fight in September. He says, ‘no, I don’t want to fight in September.’
“Meanwhile, I get a message from a Titan [FC rep] that he’s asking for a fight in Titan. And I actually have a screenshot of him saying, ‘I don’t have a contract with ONE, it’s only in Asia. I can fight in America.’ So he’s totally lying.”
So unbelievable you have to hear it for yourself!
