Former Bellator welterweight champion and current ONE FC headliner, Ben Askren, was in town over Fourth of July Weekend and made a stop by The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 Finale, which took place on July 6, 2014, inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada (results here).

And that's about as close to the Octagon as "Funky" can get.

I have no idea why the ufc didn't sign Askren for a 4 fight deal.

12k to show, 12k to win, 46k to finish.
Following a finish, Askren must be offered a UFC Title shot, or a coaching position on TUF.
1 loss via finish may result in an immediate contract termination.

Baring in mind Lombards getting 300k. I don't see how they couldn't offer Askren 12/24/70k

Because Lombard only has exciting fights! ...





Oh that's right, until he got `paid`. Let's make the win bonuses 2/3 of the payday instead of 1/2 and see if we still get another Lombard vs. Boetsch.

I'd take Askren in submission wrestling tho; his jitz is further along.

UFC wanting Askren to not be part of their promotion is a huge joke and makes them look really bad.

Yeah, to clarify I meant just in submission wrestling w/ no striking. I'd take Hendricks with MMA rules also.

Ridiculous statements from Askren.

The correct epithet for Hendricks is "midget." Barring that, "hick."

Yeah my bad. I should have responded differently. I got what you were say and was adding to it. I think it would be cool if the UFC put on one event a year grappling only open to anyone signed that wants to roll. Not that it would answer this question.

Gonna laugh when Askren gets KO'd by some 15-30 Asian journeyman in OneFC.
