Video: Jorge Masvidal pranked by Ben Askren’s ‘son’ at UFC 246 media day

Ben Askren’s “son” had a bone to pick with Jorge Masvidal after the “BMF” champ knocked out his “dad.”

During UFC 246 media day, Masvidal made an appearance to speak to reporters. One of them turned out to be 20-year-old UFC featherweight Chase Hooper, who’s gimmick is pretending he’s related to the curly-haired Askren.

Of course, the whole thing got started on the internet. After his first Octagon win this past December at UFC 245, Hooper played up his resemblance to Askren on social media.

So on Wednesday, Hooper took it upon himself to “confront” Masvidal.

Masvidal’s response is priceless – take a look.
