Thread: Ben Askren Takes UFC 167 Decision To Make Bold Claim

  1. Default Ben Askren Takes UFC 167 Decision To Make Bold Claim

    http://fiveouncesofpain.com/2013/11/...ke-bold-claim/

    Ben Askren is currently a free agent, having had his contract with Bellator expire while holding the welterweight champion.

    Many believe Askren will eventually sign with the UFC, but the promotion seems uninterested – at least from a public standpoint.

    Well, after the controversial decision at UFC 167 involving UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks, along with GSP saying he was stepping away, the former Olympian jumped at the opportunity to make a bold statement.

    “So I guess that makes me the undefeated, undisputed champion of the welterweight division,” Askren wrote on Twitter.
    Askren (12-0) finished each of his last two opponents inside the Bellator cage after a series of decision victories.
    There are many paths to freedom, not all are peaceful

    lol what a fucking idiot. Carlos Condit would go over there and rape that entire division. Hell, any of UFC's top 10 ww's could take Ben.

    I think Askren's pretty excellent, albeit still quite unproven against top tier competition, but I don't think anybody whose last win was over Andrey Koreshkov really has any validity in their claim.
