Typical Zuffa Zombie logic.

Mike Ricci is the #65 LW in the world LW.

http://www.fightmatrix.com/fighter-p...e+Ricci/19662/

Ben Askren has ALREADY BEATEN 5 top 25 WWs.


Beat Dan Hornbuckle (ranked #15 at the time at 170).
Beat Jay Hieron (ranked #11 at the time at 170).
Beat Douglas Lima (ranked #13 at the time at 170).

Both Koreshkov and Amoussou were #24 at the time of their fights against The Funky One.

Askren doing whatever he can to keep himself relevant while he's off crushing cans in Singapore.

The page I was looking for couldn't be found....oh, and they said they were sorry.

But, honestly, I would like to see Askren crack the top ten. Additionally, I'd like to see the top 20 WW's during each of those fights you mentioned. Jay Hieron being #11? In what universe did this EVER happen? JAY?

Good call.

No. When did I say that?

I can't stand King Mo. He's so stand offish, with the people are out to get me mentality. Man up and take some responsibility, you didn't win huh? How about working and training harder to win next time, instead of dwelling on what is clearly going to be a biased opinion on the past. I've never once heard him say he's learned from a defeat, and is looking to get back to training to improve his game so he can be the best.

Haha...Ricci?

I think Benny just likes to hug men of all shapes and sizes...

He'd destroy Ricci, possibly out grapple Diaz, but Hendricks would put him to sleep.

This has nothing to do actual rankings it includes unsanctioned fights... and shit graphics too.

He needs more reach if he wants to wrestle-fuck someone all the way from China. Maybe he figures if he keeps tweeting it will turn that one-way pass out of town into a round trip ticket?

Poor Askren. If he had dedicated a fraction of the time he spends running his mouth into learning standup he'd probably would not have had to move to a different country. I only wonder how long it will be before his new promotion starts to think his public fixation on the UFC makes it look like he really isnt focused on the job he does have and decides to release him. I know if I hired someone and all he kept talking about was what he could do at the company he interviewed with before me I would give him his walking papers.
