What are you talking about? He has won 10 in a row.

Reading these replies to this post, it makes me laugh. Must be GSP, and Guida fans. Ben Askren is a wrestler, thats it. Where do you get he is so awsome???? Hieron is way more exciting and entertaining.
Hieron has a great chance here.

Boy did Jay get robbed tonight by two judges.
I had it 3 rounds to 2 for Jay.
When will these judges get it right?

Haha nice try. Did u watch the soto warren fight? his wrestling didnt win that fight. I will admit warren likes his wrestling. Though warren is turning his boxing around and will be a complete fighter in the near future. Never doubt warren or his heart.

Don't get me wrong, that Soto fight was actually one of my favorite fights of recent memory with the way the 1st round went and then how Warren came out in the 2nd. I'll never doubt Warrens heart. I'm not saying he has the same skill set as Askren, or that he isn't further along in the transition from wrestling, just that they're both wrestlers working to become more complete mixed martial artists. I found it funny.

Ben won rounds 1-4....no controversy, Jay did well in the 5th and that's it.
