I'm ready to see Askren in the UFC at this point so I definitely hope Rebney lets him go even though I certainly don't expect that to happen.

Please send him to the UFC so he can go 0-3 and go back to the B-team with some humility


Are you being serious?
Give me a break.
As much as I dislike Askren, I do not see too many people beating him, let alone anyone giving him a tough fight. Personally, I'd love to see 0-3. But I guarantee you, it WILL NOT happen.

I disagree, Ben could tool a decent amount of UFC WWs without even throwing a punch and that's not an exaggeration.



This is true. Real question is if Dana even wants him.

Not surprised, Askren is boring and they have a ton of exciting WW's to make that division fun.

Yeah I think he could do well if they gave him some lower level strikers with poor takedown defense, but against most of the top ten guys I think he would get tooled. I'd take Matt Brown, Rory MacDonald, Hendrix even Jake Elenberger over him. I could see him grapple 'efing Condit and Diaz though. I think a lot of things that aren't true though. It would be fun to see in any case.



Matt Brown, really?

Yep, I Think Askren has been coddled (not intentionally) over at Bellator, his last opponent flat out said he hadn't trained any wrestling for the fight. He's looked really dominant against a lot of guys who can't wrestle. I admit though Brown is a bit of a stretch but I think his toughness and defensive wrestling would win out in the end. Probably not a smartest pick though.

OK take a break. Seriously though I think if they threw him in the deep end he would get eaten alive. Most likely they'd give him a few cupcakes at first though.

I'd watch Asken fight in the UFC against anybody, just to see how he does. I think he'd do very well

Kind of shocked they are just willing to let one of their top 3 fighters go.
