I don't get why so many people doesn't like this guy.. He does the whole McGregor thing better than McGregor EVER did it. The difference is Ben Askren put a smile on EVERYONES faces, even Marty From Nebraska at the press conference that is something i have seen very rarely or maybe never before. Robbie couldn't even keep a straight face, if Ben Askren wasn't a fighter he def should be a comedian.

This is a 13:20 *masterclass* in self-promotion.

Connor wont fight Ben cuz Ben is a low ranked beginner in the UFC and doesn't deserve a shot a Connor yet. Sorry Ben. No cutsies in line bruh.

lukas Van Der Westhuizen
LIsten Benny Bookworm. You really talk alot for a guy that has not had one fight in the UFC, First get pas Robbie Lawler, Like Usman said dont look past that man, you getting caught up in all the politicos, shut your Fokken mouth kid and first proof that you belong, because I think Robbie gonna beat your ass.

I don't understand why people hate Ben so much. Yeah his style isn't crowd-pleasing or fan friendly, but he dominates people with it. He seems like an educated, well-spoken guy. I'm glad he's finally in the UFC, because now we'll finally get to see how he does against the top 10 in the UFC.

TBF I dont want to see that fight, Ben would win, but a boring fight, soon as it goes to ground thats it 90% of the time, not thrilling. I rather see 2 fighters with styles that match, great to see 2 stand up fighters, if its going to ground, at least someone who has some ground work to fall back on.

david connor

This guy hasn’t even fought in the ufc and he wants to fight smaller guys instead of the 170 champion in his own weight class and uses the excuse he is my man friend. Truth is Woodley would destroy him. Not interested in watching his boring style.

This guy exudes confidence and is a good talker. He needs to win, UFC needs him to win. Normal sized fore-head and out of the company fighting experience.
The Emo Emu

He's not wrong. Another reason is the weight difference. One thing is fighting a guy like Askren. Another is to fight him while also giving up weight to him. That's career suicide.

I'm thinking he won't fight you because you weigh 15 -20 lbs more than he does. There are weight classes for a reason...but you should know that.

He's talked about fighting Anderson Silva so i don't think he's too concerned about size.

This guy is going to be so popular from talking until he enacts his boring style of MMA fighting. “Hold the opponent down, wait for them to get tired, then beat them down”

Ben brings such great energy to the UFC! Not the biggest fan of his fighting style but he's an extremely difficult opponent to take out. I'm def looking forward to the match-ups.

Conor McGregor is done as a fighter. Everyone knows he gassed. Ben askren and khibab will destroy Conor McGregor. Khibab should fight Tony Ferguson. If he wins Khabib should fight Ben askren. Conor McGregor is done as a fighter.

I like Ben, he's really funny! He also beats Khabib. Listened to him on Joe Rogan.
Richard Bradshaw
Ben Askren is going to kick the funk out of the entire welterweight division. Aside from his best friend Tyron. Huge fan of Bens from his college days forward into mma. The sude is a beast. Khabib wouldnt stand a chance nor would GSP

LMAO according to Ben's wikipedia page: He(Ben Askren) is also competitive in the sport of disc golf. In 2009, Askren finished 9th in the Amateur World Championships. I don't know why, but this is hilarious to me.
Makaveli the legend
the one person he isn't mentioning is Kamaru usman. Kamaru would give ben a hard time.

I too, have wAtched Ben Askren for yeArs & he is as real as it gets! He is an outstanding fighter & makes it look so easy!😊👍 I can't wait to see him fight, Lawler, Connor & Kabib!!! But, I'm guessing that they will all back down... they know that Ben will kick their asses & of course he'll do it, easily & w/style!👍 you got this Ben...😊
