Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren tossed the idea of retirement out the window. Askren sent a tweet to UFC president Dana White and UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre making it clear who was on his mind.

“Not retiring yet, still 1 person I want to beat up. @GeorgesStPierre @ufc @danawhite”

Askren is undefeated with 12 wins and has served as the Bellator welterweight champion for most of their existence. Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney teased an announcement about the free agent.

St-Pierre has dominated the UFC welterweight division and is considered one of the current pound-for-pound best fighters out there.

Hopefully, we’ll know soon enough what’s next for Askren.
