Ben just explained why he is devastating for UFC. HE CAN EMASCULATE THE ENTIRE UFC LIST OF BRAWLERS. One man doesn't make money for Dana like a 1000 brawlers can.

Askren v Khabib. It needs to happen. The two best in the world pound for pound. And possibly the two best ever pound for pound. No disrespect to BJ Penn and Fedor.

I think Dana didn't want Ben to join the UFC back in 2013 because Connor was a huge star and he didn't want Ben's style to beat him. Connor was Dana's cash cow! Now he has Khabib who is similar to Ben and Connor doing other things outside the UFC. Now it's a great time to bring in Ben! Ben will dominate, mark my words...If you can take 15 of Robbie L best shots and immediately get up and take him down and choke him out! Imagine if they do it again? Ben will end the fight in 1st round....I've watched a lot of Ben's college wresting, grappling, and other MMA organizations and he man handles guys that look way bigger (amazing)...Colby, Usman, Tyrone all know it!

ben askren seems to be saying a lot lately only 2 mins in the ufc very nearly got the bollox beaten out of him pulled off one move and got a early stoppage from it and now thinks mc gregor wont fight him......maybe dana has it right about this dude he is starting to be very obnoxious to listen to ,i dunno maybe thats the way they do it in Olympia back in the day when they wrestled naked ,another mans slong rubbing off your eyes urhhhh no thanks...askren would prob enjoy that by the look of it

See my other comment too. Best damn press conference I've ever seen pertaining to any UFC fighter, and at the time this was posted, the dude ain't been with the UFC for what, a week?
Howabouthetruth 2 months ago
This dude is SMART. He made the most sense about weight divisions I've ever heard in the history of the UFC. And he's RIGHT. Creating 165 and 175 divisions WOULD enable guys just above or below either, to come up or come down just a little in weight to create fights between the best, that otherwise would never likely happen. It's this kind of great ideas & outspoken opinions that obviously intimidates the piss out of Dana White. Askren also has the coolest head of the entire UFC......and NO, I'm NOT talking about his damned hair.

Of course he’s on cloud 9, he debuted in the cage (aka “made it”) and on top of that the ref (whether you agree or not) declared him the winner. Oh and not to mention a $350,000 pay check. Probably the most he’s ever made in his life.

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.

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.

Mr. Fadzil he was one Robbie Lawler punch from being a 40 second knock out victim and having his UFC career virtually over. Amazing recovery to save his UFC career. The headlock was real. No way Lawler survives another 2 minutes of it. Boring. He is a likable American version of Khabib.

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.
