Watch: Jorge Masvidal Jaws Off With Ben Askren In Final Faceoff Before UFC 239

Ben Askren

Earlier today (Fri. July 5, 2019) the UFC 239 pay-per-view (PPV) ceremonial weigh-ins took place in Las Vegas.

In the main event of the night, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will defend his strap against the heavy-hitting Thiago Santos. Co-headlining the show is a UFC women’s bantamweight title fight between defending champion Amanda Nunes and Holly Holm.

However, arguably, the most anticipated bout on the card, is a welterweight clash between Ben Askren and Jorge Masvidal. The animosity between the pair has been brewing for months now.

Askren and Masvidal came face-to-face for the final time before locking horns tomorrow night during today’s ceremonial weigh-ins. Check out their encounter here:
