Fight Fans Crossing Limits By Trolling Ben’s Wife On Social Media After His UFC 239 Loss To Jorge Masvidal
UFC 239 PPV event delivered some wild night of fights at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this past Saturday, July 6, 2019.
One fight that catches the attention of the MMA world was when Jorge Masvidal viciously landed a flying knee that brutally knockout Ben Askren in record-setting five seconds into round one. “Gamebred” also delivered few extra blows on the downed Askren which was not needed and many fans were in awe of such act.
Before the event, both fighters exchanged trash talk and Masvidal clearly said he’s going to hurt ‘Funky’ so bad which he proved it at UFC 239.
Fans took a jab at Ben Askren following brutal KO loss on social media. Some fans crossed the limit and troll Askren’s wife over her husband’s defeat and asking if he’s still alive.
See below some of the comments fans made on Askren’s wife Amy’s Instagram:
“Is your husband still alive?”
“Is Ben still dead?”
Yes, I hate Ben Askren more than any of you but commenting sick messages on her wife's Instagram is something I wouldn't ever do.

Trash talking and throw shade in the lead up to fight and post-fight antics are all part of the game; however, trolling family in it is something not cool.
Askren hasn’t responded to that troll yet.
