Based on the time stamp, I'd say it was following the Ring/McGee fight.

It was about the Jordan-Kongo fight. I meant to post some of his comments last night. He had me rolling.

That's possibly the best Tweet I've ever read.

He said this about Kongo-Jordan to someone that tweeted at him.


Ben Askren @Benaskren @MC_Sadist if you were referring to the fight that just happened there was no good wrestling of any kind there

I'm actually glad you said that...it just made me realize that I have the wrong timezone set for Twitter. Fixed.

I doubt there is anything worse than a Ben Askren fight. Maybe a Cambodian toddler knife fight, but that's just worse for different reasons.

Hell yeah, there is far less regulation in the Cambodian toddler knife fight circuit compared to it's US equivalent.

At least he finally realizes his fights are boring. Nice to see him take a shot at himself.

I like watching Askren.

His creativity and scrambles are always fun for me. Plus, he often winds up in dangerous positions which make the fight more exciting.
IMO, he is like Jon Fitch... except Askren is bad enough at MMA to still get caught in precarious situations.

I get why so many dislike Askren's style though.
