    The best thing the UFC has ever done is sign Ben Askren. I was just listening to his interview on ESPN MMA and I was really impressed on how well he communicates. He has already convinced me he has won this fight and he paints Jorge as a mental midget. It's impressive. I think it's safe to say Askren > Connor and he will probably be champion.

    It's a big if, but if Jorge can avoid the wrestlefuckedge and get in a rythym, he could beat Ben.

    Give me Carlos Condit. Never thought a natural born killer could be so well-spoken.

    He's working on the intricacies of maneuvers Brock doesn't even know the name of.

    Nope. Brendan Shaub is, regardless of what Sherdog thinks. He's made a highly profitable career out of being well spoken.

    I wouldn't say Askren>Conor...
    But I do enjoy his style of trash talk. He's a lot of fun

    There’s a lot of them.

    Cruz
    Bisping
    Chael (when he’s being him self)
    Conor
    askren
    Werdum (just not so much English)
    Mir
    Dc

    All come to mind

    He's real about his trash talk. I like that. He also doesn't talk aimless shit....he has specific targets for specific reasons. He unfortunately had to fight Robbie but now he's fighting one of those targets. But Jorge is anti selling fights.

    That's as far as I made it too. We should all have mental midgets. World would be so happy

    Ben has been countered by complete scrubs. He's fighting the best counter wrestler he has yet.... He's kinda jinxing himself.

    Chael is the most "well spoken" even tho he spewed xenophobic trash his entire career.

    It's like nobody knows what well spoken means, or has ever heard of Rich Franklin

    This is better than the thread earlier asking if Askren had brain damage because he couldnt speak and slurred all his words
