    Yup and quite a few knowledgeable wrestlers in WCW at the time would also back up that claim. However still the NWO was the best thing that ever happened to WCW>

    I saw him fight for the first time not to long ago. Yeah he is an outstanding wrestler. He lives up to the hype. That being said I'm really indifferent if he comes to UFC or stays with Bellator.

    Great point.

    And yea, WCW had so many problems it wasn't funny. It's really the story of how fast can you burn a billion bucks.

    Meh, I'm really not bothered. Askren is just Fitch v2 in my opinion.
    I see him working his way to the top with a string of boring decisions, but if he slips up I can't see the UFC or its fans having any problem cutting him.

    My problem is Askren is so good at wrestling, but he doesn't have a finishing move. To me MMA should provide more finishes from T/Ko or sub's if your a consistent dec fighter it's more of a sport like wrestling were their opponet is only tired when done. I can enjoy a fighter using control over there opponet, but don't care to see move after move only looking to control and not attempt to submit them

    Them signing Askren puts about as much excitement through my body as when they signed Jake Shields.... who fucking cares.
    Please Dana, sign someone that is going to bore us to sleep.

    They should have a 3 way match between Askren, Shields, and Colton Smith & see which one of them could be the heavier blanket.

Here we have an undefeated mma fighter who is an Olympian, trains at a top camp, multiple time national champion and some of you don't want to see him ply his trade in the big leagues?
    Fools, all of them.
