Personally if i was dana i wouldnt shell out too much cash for askren, i see him turning out more like Shields in the ufc. Although i would love to see someone ktfo of askren
You can't deny Ben's skillset. Now some may not find it as a "dazzling" display of action but one should see that his last couple have become more "fan friendly" to watch. I could care less b/c I find it entertaining. 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?
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.
Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.

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
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.
