Ben Askren taunts Jon Jones on twitter for placing third behind Matt Riddle in state tournament

One FC welterweight champion Ben Askren added fuel to the fire between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier on twitter.


Days away from the highly anticipated UFC 182 clash between light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, the two competitors have cut down on the trash talking and begun the final stage of mental preparation for the enthralling encounter.

However, that has not stopped fighters like Ben Askren from interfering on twitter to add fuel to the fire between the two dominant competitors. The One FC welterweight champion taunted Jones by posting a photograph on him placing third in a state tournament behind former UFC fighter Matt Riddle.

Naturally, neither Jones nor Cormier have responded to the tweet as of yet.
