Come on, you have to make it at least a little subtle if you're gonna troll.
That's kind of a silly comparison no? Askren also whooped Koreshkov who dominated Benson Henderson. The Same Henderson who just left the UFC and beat Masvidal in his previous fight.
Styles make fights. If you don't think Lima can hang with the top UFC guys, you're nuts. I'm not saying he would be champ, but there is enough evidence to see guys from other organizations can be top fighters. Also guys leaving the UFC and losing to much "lesser" fighters.
Yeah, because literally no one competed in Pride in the last decade. 2007 was the company’s last year.
Or.... the UFC had a chance to sign him in his prime, in 2013, which was when Dana was doing everything he could to purge any control wrestler who could consistently beat strikers from the UFC. Askren continued to dominate for another four years, retired, and then came back for a run well after his prime, with, apparently, his hip falling apart.
He very possibly was up to the hype, but a fighters prime is not an indefinite time window. They could have signed him when he was 29. The difference for an athlete between 29 and 35 is immense.
So you're saying he's right, right? LOL
Mousasi was not a ufc flop by any standard. He’s just stupid to make that comment,
My favorite example of this used to be Hector Lombard. He was supposed to be a destroyer of worlds, then he came to the UFC and he was just a jacked dude with no footwork.
Askren became a much better example though.
