    Perry is scheduled to face Vicente Luque In August. Perry more than likely will get whooped and lose again.

    Give Askren a solid 5-6 months of recovery from 239 and you could book this fight as the opening main card fight on the NYE PPV in late December.

    Askren has made fun of Perry in the past insinuating he was not on his level. Now this matchup doesn’t seem that far-fetched. Who do you guys think would take it?

    Ben finishes Platibum in the first round. Sub or even TKO.
    Perry has a horrid ground game, dogshit fight IQ and assuming Ben's chin isn't nuked he ain't KO'ing him.

    I'd prefer Askren not go up against knockout artists. Not because he'll get knocked out, but because we should let the standers and bangers fight other standers and bangers.

    Askren should fight Maia.

    That seems like a gigantic drop in competition level. I don't think Askren is interested in a non top 10 fighter considering he doesn't have many more years left of fighting and he wasn't far from getting a title shot. Till or Wonderboy makes a lot more sense to me.

    Only groundgame Ben's gonna show against Platinum is his head bouncing off the canvas. Perry is the better version of Masvidal.

    This really needs to stop, Askren would demolish this guy.

    The dude is 19-1 and has a win over Lawler who’s arguably fighting for a #1 Contender spot against Colby.

    Askren vs the winner of RDA vs Edwards seems most fitting.

    Yeah, one of those guys makes a lot more sense. That said, any of them (including Perry) have a puncher's chance...but Till and WB certainly have a better chance. Till stuffed Woodley's two TD attempts...if he does that to Askren, the fight probably won't last long. Unlike Woodley, Ben has zero ability to KO Till if the fight remains standing.

    Perry wouldn't prove anything, either. Askren has already beaten low-level, 1-dimensonal strikers in OneFC and Bellator.

    1. Perry fans are ridiculous. They continually ask whether her should fight [insert highly ranked fighter's name], yet the guy can't crack the top 15.

    2. This is the perfect time for Askren-Maia. I believe this is the last fight on Maia's contract, so it would give him one last marquee matchup before sailing off into the sunset. And it would be an intriguing clash of styles.

    Would be a fun fight but they will still most likely give Askren a ranked opponent when he returns.
