    Kamaru Usman, dude has the most smothering wrestling ive ever seen. Khabib, Askren GSP and DC have nothing on his wrestling. He will wrestlefuck Woodley and Askren when they fight.

    You think his previous performances will carry over to guys like Askren or Khabib?

    Put the pipe down and think...askren is far better wrestling pedigree than those 3 but would love to see beeb vs askren

    And gsp vs winner

    Usman can figure it out vs colby after he loses vs woodley

    And usman will need alot more than wrestling to beat woodley who is also a great wrestler

    Division II, not quite A-level enough for Sherdog, OP.

    Maia is a legit top of the food chain win. But It’s a bit early to proclaim him the WrestleFuck messiah.

    Askren is a better wrestler than Usman, but Kamaru definitely has better stand-up and the height / reach.

    Would watch that one just to see how the wrestling played out.

    Have been impressed with Usman... when he is willing to fight and not go straight for a decision. Good wrestling and hands... Been saying for sometime the guy has skills to be a legit contender if he is 100%.

    Usman vs Askren is what I want to see, people argue wrestling credentials but they don't accurately translate into MMA, some of the best MMA wrestlers have out-wrestled men with much better pedigrees. Usman is a monster and it would be a great test for what Askren has to offer.
