    Don't know this guy, but at least he has a decent record with 9 straight wins. No one else out there really to fight.

    I looked at onefc's website and can't find where it lists there champions. Do they have a 170 pound champ? Not real familiar with their product.

    It is a shame that Askren will never be in the UFC when he is better than a large majority of UFC welterweights.

    Why do you say never? He wins three or four in onefc by finish and the ufc calls him up. I know he and Dana have history, but money talks.

    Fitch and Shields got cut for being boring. Askren is notorious for being boring by many fans even though I disagree. The UFC had a chance to sign him in his prime and fight the top guys in the world and they chose not to.

    Would they fight? I know that they have trained a lot together in the past, are they still training partners?
