And something I hadn't even considered before.
But you are right on the money...
Askren was lambasted for being a dominant wrestler... while Nurmagomedov is heralded... for being a dominant grappler.
The difference being, one of them is a UFC fighter (= GOOD) the other a former Bellator champ (= BAD)... at least according to some people's logic.
VERY cool point you raise dude!
Askren NOT being in the UFC is an absolute joke to me... and the most OBVIOUS case of politics trumping what is right/deserved.
How that guy got screwed by DW and Co.... it's a shame.
