Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Michael Bisping and Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren recently went toe-to-toe on Twitter.
When not entertaining bets with Alan Belcher and NFL star Wallace Gilberry -- or responding to non-stop call outs from the rest of the Middleweight division -- Michael Bisping turns his attention to other mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters outside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) roster.
Fighters who just so happen to be former roommates and current training partners with "The Talent."
"The Count" recently took Ben Askren to task on Twitter after the two were involved in a lighthearted yet entertaining war of words in which the brash Brit criticized everything from the current Bellator Welterweight champion's hair and fight style to the level of quality opponents in his promotion.
Check it out:
Bisping is scheduled to battle Belcher at UFC 159 on April 27, 2013, but before "The Count" attempts to get back into the win column against after a recent loss to Vitor Belfort, it's safe to say "The Count" earned a Pyrrhic victory over Askren in this verbal exchange.
