The UFC has confirmed the welterweight matchup between Ben Askren and Robbie Lawler.


Earlier this month, it was reported by ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that multi-promotion MMA champion Ben Askren would be making his UFC debut against Robbie Lawler at UFC 233.

Very intriguing. I was wondering who the UFC would give Askren first, and who would be willing to sign on the dotted line. We all know Robbie will take on any man. I just don't see it being a high probability that Robbie will walk away victorious. But the UFC bug has been known to bite hungry/new fighters before.

Askren is going to wrestlehump him to death starfish style. Lawler is doomed. I can see the look in Lawler's eyes now as he frustratingly struggles to no avail to get out from under or away from Askren. Great matchup for Ben. Not so for Robbie. Puncher's chance though. Robbie is fairly strong and highly experienced to boot. We'll see. Hopefully. lol You never know if a fight will pan out or not.
