    It's kind of a long article, the MMA reference is in the last few paragraphs.

    He's already a Purple Belt in BJJ. He will be a monster in a couple years once he improves his striking skills.

    HW: Andrei Arlovski, Cain Velazquez
    LHW: Tito Ortiz, Forrest Griffin, Rampage, Ryan Bader
    MW: Rich Franklin, Gegard Mousasi, Jorge Santiago
    WW: GSP, Carlos Condit
    LW: Kenny Florian, Sean Sherk, Nate Diaz

    yeah hes a purple belt in BJJ, has an NCAA title, hes obviosuly an excellent grappler and the only thing ins question is his striking. However, We'll see how he does as hes expressed interest in joining the UFC. Look forward to watching Askren fight.
