He'll be a Sherdog deity.
Endorsed.

Hopefully Dana has the foresight and the wherewithal to put Askren on this path once he jumps the Bellator ship.

Indeed.

With this forum's collective Sherzheimer's Syndrome, one or two impressive wins over 3-0 TUFers would all but erase Askren's numerous sins committed on the spectators of his past fights.

Give him an Irish accent and he'd be a lock for PPV %'s.

Actually, Jacare's pure BJJ credentials are far better than Maia's. But yeah, Maia has best translated his pure BJJ into MMA BJJ.

Would you fight other Brazilians, like Lyoto and Belfort?
Sure! I don't even know why are you asking me this. Who wouldn't want fight Belfort, a guy who is in a huge evolution, who is knocking everyone out cold? And Lyoto, who is a former Light-Heavyweight champion? Of course I want this fight! Gimme this fight and I'll accept it!

It's always like that when Machida's foes don't take the bait and don't advance careless chasing him.
