  1. The ease with which Askren was able to manhandle people during his career is truly remarkable. People love to meme him because of his first defeat, but it would have been interesting to see what he might have done in the UFC if he had come earlier in his career.

  2. My terrible prediction: Karl Amousou will be the one to defeat him. Prior to the Askren fight, he seemed to be a ruthless murderer. Then Askren went about his day. Take control.

  3. If he’s already in the UFC at the time, he’ll almost certainly be fighting for a title shot. I don’t think he’ll beat GSP, but he’ll get there, which is impressive.

  4. When it comes to chain takedowns, he and Khabib are really close before they finish it. I’m 100 percent committed to the takedown, and I’m really enjoying it.

  5. Any time he goes for a takedown, you can see his hips giving out. Take a look at the way he throws his punches. He can scarcely transform his body and throw a heavy punch, but there’s almost no weight behind it. I’m not a fan of Askren, but his body is clearly limited, which is unfortunate because it could lead to the assumption that he’s a jerk.

  6. I’d have loved to see this version of Askren in the octagon… I know he doesn’t give a damn, but I feel bad for him because people think he’s a knucklehead when he was a legitimate champion boxer.

  7. It’s a pity he joined the UFC so late in his career, particularly with a fucking hip that needs to be replaced.

    I believe he could have done well in his brief UFC career if he had been healthier and younger.

  8. I know you can’t wrestle in boxing, but Paul’s face when they tie up and he realizes true fighters like Ben are made of steel when you try to move them is going to be hilarious.

  9. Imagine if Askren hadn’t been knocked out by that knee. He would have easily defeated Masvidal and avoided a wrestling battle with an MMA BJJ phenom. Askren could’ve easily been in the lead role.
