Ben Askren went to Twitter to talk both about Josh Barnett's PED use and the UFC's Countdown program not mentioning his positive drug test after beating Randy Couture.

I don't like Askren, but I can't say he's wrong.

Anyone who has payed attention knows its common knowledge that he tested positive after the Couture fight.

Askren best keep his trap shut if he wants into the UFC. Talk all you want after you put pen to paper

The twitter beef is heating up. Barnett threaten to smash him when he sees him next and wouldn't you know it. Funky is cornering Pettis and will be in the same locker room as Barnett next UFC event.

Facts ARE facts...Barnett tested positive and Askrens chin is currently under investigation for HGH use

Askren by unanimous decision

I'm not a big Askren fan, but I can't fucking stand Barnett.

Askren might be just trying to keep his name in the headlines hoping it will boost his bargaining power. Maybe trying to gain fans as a clean fighter crusading against dopers. He doesn't have a fight scheduled at the moment and wont be fighting for probably 6 months at the minimum. Neither the UFC nor Bellator are going to sell him hard unless he is under contract. So he needs to find someway to keep people talking about him.

UFC may not want Ben now

Askren was a pup when that happened, so he has no business talking shit about this incident. I can understand if this was a ploy to set up a fight down the line, but there is no way these two will ever be able to fight.

Besides, when has a Countdown show ever exposed someone's weaknesses? That would be stupid of the UFC.

I don't think Askren will have the same success he did in Bellator, in the UFC. Bellator has practically no wrestlers at Welterweight, the UFC has a bunch to choose from between, Ellenberger to Koscheck, Pierce, Hendricks and of course the champ GSP. I don't like his chances of staying undefeated in the UFC.

I cant believe the UFC would hide facts everyone already knows to promote a fight

I'm the same way about Askren...I think he's quite possibly the most annoying/obnoxious fighter in MMA...even his smile is douchey lol

He's entitled to voice his opinion on it, like anyone should be. At least he has the balls to do it, unlike countless others who just keep it shut for fear of reprisals.

They need to do something serious about this before the sport loses more credibility.

Burying your head in the sand is not an option.
