Ben Askren is taking another dig at Sean O'Malley.
Askren and O’Malley haven’t been on the best of terms ever since Askren blasted O’Malley for getting carted out of the UFC Apex after a first-round TKO loss to Marlon Vera at UFC 252. The retired fighter has now taken things a step further, as he posted a video on Twitter after getting hip surgery, telling O’Malley to “toughen up:”

MMA Fighting provided the following transcript of what Askren said in the Twitter video:
“See, Sean O’Malley’s faking an ankle injury. Needed a f*cking stretcher. I’m like four hours post-op from my hip, and Lisa’s got me walking already. Sean, toughen up a little bit, son!”
There has been no response yet from O’Malley after the latest insult hurled his way by Askren.
