Ben Askren Is Not Going To Retire Until He Fights George St-Pierre

Yesterday during the UFC on FOX 9 pre-fight press conference, UFC lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis said he thought his teammate and wrestling coach, Ben Askren, was on the verge of retirement. But Askren took to his twitter today to let it be known that this was not the case at all.

Askren said this via his personal twitter account:

“Not retiring yet, still 1 person I want to beat up. @GeorgesStPierre @ufc @danawhite”

“Once I figured out GSPs dark place didn’t really exist I knew he would be easy prey!”

“Seriously though GSP in 2009 prob would have beat me, but this current version fights way too scared!”
