Ben Askren has been busy lately. Since news broke this week that a trade was in the works to bring Askren to UFC, sending Demetrious Johnson to ONE Championship, Askren has been putting the UFC roster on notice. Take a look at some of the burn damage Askren has caused in the last two days. We’ll try and update this article as his work continues.
