    I know this is "media", but feel in many cases that there should be an "Obvious" tag used instead of "Confirmed."

    Will be interesting to see how Askren's first fight goes.

    Nobody really likes Ben either

    They just pretend to be "hardcore" mma fans

    Nobody has really watched any of Bens fights

    Neither of them are. Covington likely whoops Askren if they ever fight.

    You're joking Askren mauls Colby easy only way Colby wins is if he keeps the fight standing.

    Well, yeah. The idea is that Covington would, in fact, keep the fight standing. Askren is a great wrestler with a dominant top game, but his striking is beyond terrible. He's never showcased that he can take and hold down a wrestler and scrambler of Covington's calibre.

    I would love to see this fight. a lot of questions and uncertainty as far as I'm concerned. mostly with askren. he's obviously a crazy talent, but he looked rather human in his brief fight vs Luis Santos. and he hasn't faced much high level talent in general. you could argue that koreshkov and lima weren't "koreshkov and lima" when they fought years ago. I'm certainly not nay-saying that Ben Askren could be a top 3 welterweight. he very well could be. will have to wait and see.... but based off what I know, I think covington would take him

    Ben askren is honestly getting more annoying than Covington at this point.

    I am pretty sure most of you guys don't watch Ben Askren. A lot of you guys are going to post his wrestling is overrated when you finally see he doesn't have a power double or even a shot where his legs touch the ground.
    Colby is exciting compared to Askren. He has wrestling tenacity and he has sucky but effective Jake Shields type of slow striking.
