    Interview is a lot of fun. The guy is brutally honest about everything while remaining entertaining.

    Agree that Tyron should be fighting Colby.

    Don’t even know who Marty is? Marty Jenetty? Lol

    They gave up their most dominant champion in history for Ben, It's the Askren era now.

    Fuck a 165 lb division, it's dumb to have a weight class 5 pounds away from 170. I thought they would have learned from boxing instead of following in the same foot steps.

    I think they would be moving 170 to 175 if they add a 165

    Truth be told I know very little about Ben, but seeing this I like the guy I find his honesty refreshing. I agree Tyron should be beating up on Colby for our entertainment, fighting Usman is true WW business in this case I want pleasure before business.

    That's what they should do but I haven't seen anything to suggest that they would. Honestly I'm happy with how it is, Askren can fight Woodley, cut to 155 or go up to 185. He has options.

    Lol amazing. You genuinely believe you, not a guy who has had several meetings with administration and execs for the UFC wouldn't know something you don't. Just amazing, thank you though! A good laugh never hurts

    I'm already beyond hyped about Askren just from the media he has been doing and he hasn't even fought in the UFC yet.

    This dude is going to get wrecked, was shocked when I heard he got traded for DJ. I thought he was retired. Glad he's finally in the UFC though.

    Colby and Kamaru both scared of Askren... Both shit talking assholes but neither want anything to do with Ben, pretty funny really.

    Champ of a division that doesnt exist. OK I'm sure UFC told him all their plans for the next 5 years amirite, he's Ben Askren the guy who nodody knows and has the most boring style in mma

    Ben talks shit, but it's true shit. He's honest and don't hold back. I like it. He isn't ducking anyone, and it's great that he will fight any of them. Marty from Nebraska better watch out.. Lol
