Bjorn Rebney, the man in charge of Bellator Fighting Championships, has come to the defense of one of his own.
Over the weekend, Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren caused a little Twitter-discussion by saying the Cheick Kongo-Shawn Jordan match at UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao was more boring than one of his own fights.
Well, Rebney decided to let Askren know that is not the case at all. Askren has fought for Bellator seven times since joining the promotion in 2010.
“Boring? You’ve fought 2:02.40 fight time in Bellator’s cage. Complete domination for 1:56. I’m not bored by total domination,” Rebney posted on Twitter.
Askren replied back with, “thanks, it is nice when your boss has your back.” The former Olympian is a perfect 10-0 in his career, but has won six of those via decision.
