Askren looked good in his debut, sad to see him go the way of the Buffalo in the eyes of many MMA fans. IMO I think he could wreck shop in the UFC, hopefully Dana changes his mind in the future and picks this kid up. Maybe if he strings together some finishes the UFC brass might finally take notice.

I don't think it's a question of the number of finishes on his record, it's the amount he's asking to get paid per fight

The more fights Ben does win the more money he thinks he'll be worth, the less likely we are to see him.

He's good but I see him struggling in the UFC with all the beasts at 170.

Can't speak for the rest of the field... But Hendricks has his number. Beat him in college already. I would like Hendricks' chances.
