I would love to see this fight actually.
But he's in the UFC and Ben isn't.
LOL askren struggled with GSP leftover Jay Hieron . I really cant understand why he talks himself so big . At least colby is a world champion in the world best mma promotion and not like you who fights tomato cans in b-leagues .
Askren dumps Colby on his head at will for a standard UD or TKO on the ground.
Well, maybe. Probably.
I think Woodley would rather fight colby, and not just because he and Ben are buddies.
I don't like either guy but one of them is at least playing with the big boys.
They both just lay n gay. Nobody wants to watch that shit
Thats why i would like to see it. Not because it would be fireworks, but askren(and everyone else) speaks so highly of his wrestling, id like to see him tested with another high ranked, UFC wrestler, to finally put it to rest the criticism of his competition.
Against a striker people could blame the result on match-up and etc...
Ben Askren trying to be relevant.
Comparing colby to askren is a joke...
Askren was on the US Olympic team with Cormier.
He didn't even have a better wrestling career than Woodley ...
Let's not even start on mma
Colby is a poor mans Askren in the cage and a poor mans Angela Magana on twitter.
This. But some people have too much organization loyalty to take off their blinders.
He's right you know.
Colby "RC Cola" Covington
who managed to be WW champ in the ufc? oh ok
The plain reason Ben isn't in the UFC is because of Dana, not because of skill.
He would probably be in the same position as usman and colby now or champion.
Its hilarious when people say this.
Ben Askren had a total of 8 career fights when he fought Hieron. Completely green, and he won. So you understand, Hieron had a total of 4 professional fights when Georges beat him. Context matters.
Askren openly campaigned to be in the UFC and Dana, for personal or financial reasons, refused to sign him, despite him clearly being the most talented free agent in the sport at the time.
You can't blame Askren for never getting a chance to fight in the UFC.
Ben has been in Olympic, Cloby wasn't.
Maia and Rda are way better wins than anyone on Askren’s resume.
Its easier to look awesome in a C level promotion fighting nobodies. Its a different ballgame when you are in the ufc. Lombard, Alvarez, Torres and many others are examples of that.
