Someone call 911, Ben Askren just killed Dillon Danis and Conor McGregor on Twitter

Don’t ever play the logic game with “Funky.”

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, trained jiu-jitsu under Dillon Danis (again) ahead of his Khabib Nurmagomedov title fight at UFC 229 last October in Las Vegas.

Danis was so confident in McGregor’s abilities, he went on record to suggest “Notorious” could defeat “The Eagle” in a straight-up grappling match, roughly one month before McGregor was submitted by Nurmagomedov in round four of their headlining affair.

So do we blame the teacher or the student? Let’s ask Danis.

Then Ben Askren with the flash knockout (words you may never hear again):

That’s not to suggest Askren is loyal to little brother Nurmagomedov.

The “Funky” welterweight just likes to make trouble with every available fighter, regardless of weight class. When he’s not busy trolling “Marty from Nebraska,” the former Bellator MMA and ONE Championship titleholder is prepping for his Robbie Lawler fight at UFC 235.

Just don’t expect him to ever call out McGregor.
