    Honestly I don't see Askren rolling through a few fights and a championship. IMO he will come into the UFC in similar fashion to Lombard. The competition in the top 5 is going to be significantly different than most his fights. I see him being competitive in the top 5 and his wrestling makes him a threat to anyone. That said, I don't have him picked against any one of the top 3 today.

    I guess we'll find out sooner than later. I'm sure Alvarez is something pissed right now.

    I'm a huge Condit fan but I pick Askren 7 of 10 in that fight. Kampmann took him down at will without doing much to set it up.

    Can't wait for this. Of course I am a homer being a Missouri fan and having several guys at my gym who have trained with Ben. War Askren. Hope the UFC picks him up.

    I hope Askren signs with the UFC and gets subsequently released after getting KO'd 3 times in a row.

    In those fights, he's on the end of a huge right hand and looking at the stars IMO.
    Oh certainly i would love to see those match ups. I think Hendricks stuffs the TD's and Ko's him were as Ellenberger would be a closer fight to call if he gets tentative with his hands like he did against Rory.

    I would tune into either fight as a co-main or a main of a free card.

    I have family in Columbia and actively root for Mizzou's teams and former student athletes but i just couldn't with that guy he comes across so smug and arrogant.

    I am however a die hard UofM fan and Charles Woodson was a man that could do no wrong even when he became a Packer. So i kinda understand but Woodson was never the kind of person i think Askren is.
    Fav Fighters: Penn, Wand, Fedor, Genki, Shields, Rashad, Pulver, Diaz bros, Melendez.
