But Askren just won't shut up. How much sense does it make to keep badmouthing a potential employer?

Seems as if we have the same take concerning Askren-White.
Dana's the same dude who agreed to a contract stipulation with Tito where he would literally box him if Tito would sign the contract.
This is a big misnomer, er, an urban legend. Tito signed the contract with said clause, however, Tito decided against enforcing the contract stipulation (I'd wager DFW told him it's not in his best financial interest to do so), not the other way around as you asserted.

No worries on the mix up.
And yeah, I admit that Dana's a proven liar. He always talks out of both sides of his mouth, so it's hard to believe anything he says. But that's why I tried to use examples that were provable to show that he's still made deals with fighters who've disrespected him before. The Nate Diaz slap is on video so we don't need to take anyone's word on it. And Tito's gone on record confirming both the boxing match and the private plane scuffle, so at least if someone's lying there, it would be both of them.
Either way, I think Askren could probably get a UFC deal if he'd just stop talking crap, sucked up his pride, and apologized to Dana. And then if there ever was a Khabib vs Askren fight at 170lbs, I'd expect either an early submission or a long, boring, Woodley vs Maia type of fight. That's because I'd expect one of them to overestimate their skills and get caught in something nasty, or for their grappling skills to be negated and leave us with a... not so pleasant striking match.
