This thread can be used to discuss tonight's Bellator event. I'm excited to see Ben Askren fight. One of the more aggressive wrestlers in MMA.

-Ben Askren (7-0) vs. Nick Thompson (38-13-1) Askren by decision

-Brent Weedman (18-5-1) vs. Jay Hieron (20-4) - Hieron by decision

Season 4 Lightweight Tournament Semifinal Bout:
-Lloyd Woodard (11-0) vs. Michael Chandler (6-0) - Chandler by decision

These should all be exciting fights though.

Beautiful Slam by Chandler in rd1. Why are there no elbows at all?

Only because it's a tournament bout. They don't want guys getting cut up since they fight every few weeks.

Chandler got the UD. Great takedowns. Patricky Pitbull will get the knockout. I think so. If his shots dont get em, chandler by UD

Great fight by Chandler. I think he has a chance to pull a small upset and win the tournament.

I think Askren would beat GSP pretty easy too

Askren had a nice little single-leg to dominant position in the first round. He's impressive.

That's a bold statement. There's a pretty big difference between GSP and every opponent Askren has fought.

I'm kinda not liking these champs in super fights, they need to find another things for the champ, but idk the tourney kinda forces them to do non title super fights.

Agree. Askren is impressive, but he has nothing on GSP at this point.

yeah its incredibly bold and ranks up there with Asrens wrestling...Its like I said phenomenal and he would own GSP on the ground...But like i said a funky move will get him subbed one day....

Guy has great control on top and doesnt get winded at all...

I know nobodies gonna agree Askren beating GSP but he would definitely ge him down and his GNP is aggressive when on top...

The better wrestler decides where the fight takes place...

I don't know if you're serious or not but GSP has some excellent wrestling himself. He owned Kos and Fitch. Askren is still too green. GSP by domination.

I am quite aware of GSP wrestling but Askren is another breed he prolly one of the best in the world...im sayin Askren wins easily if hes smart but his nickname is his downfall...A funky move he would get subbed but GSP isnt on that level to pulll that off...

Seriously though that guys wrestling is phenomenol but he does make mistakes and it only takes once to get caught..
