Video: Darren Till rushes from backstage to yell at Ben Askren at UFC London

LONDON – It’s safe to say Ben Askren’s messages to Darren Till are being heard loud and clear.

With Askren onstage at a fan Q&A in advance of today’s UFC on ESPN+ 5 ceremonial weigh-ins, Till rushed from backstage, middle fingers raised, yelling, “(Expletive) Ben Askren!”

Just moments prior, Askren (19-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) had been relating a sentiment that he’s echoed since arriving in London: “Funky” believes Till (17-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) is going to beat Jorge Masvidal (32-13 MMA, 9-6 UFC) in the main event of Saturday’s fight card, clearing the way for an Askren vs. Till matchup this summer.

Apparently, Till didn’t take too kindly to the challenge.

Check out video of Till’s brief appearance above, as well as the UFC’s view of the altercation below:
