I think he is trying to evolve. Most of us have probably seen the video of him rolling with marcello garcia. Once he starts showing some of his jits he will be more exciting (if he shows it?). I really think he will get a chance to show it against Amasou (who I like) b/c I think Karl will gas and hopefully Ben will try to submit him.
I do have a friend who was in the fight game who knows a guy (I know that sounds dumb but I am close to the university) that says Askren hates getting hit in sparring. Like so much that he stops sparring when it happens. Just a rumor.
