    How do you know Askren is not correct?

    Askren is a snitch, why I'm not shocked?

    This is not "criticism", thread starter. Criticism would be something like "Coker sucks at his job" or "Askren is a loud-mouthed idiot who was badly exposed". And, being subjective, it would be largely protected by law.

    This, however, is a verifiable statement purporting to be objective, like "Ben Askren was finished in his last 2 UFC fights", or "Askren is 5' 11" ".

    If you make such statements while knowing they are false, you can absolutely be sued. Especially when you're a public figure who still ostensibly has a working relationship with a rival company (the UFC) and the plaintiff can prove damages. (In this case, devaluing Bellator's worth as they shop for a new company to stream their content with)

    Coker might have a great case here.

    this. it has nothing to do with being "sensitive". Askren making statements like that literally impacts the company's values if people are dumb enough to believe him.

    Ben is lying and speaking without knowledge. Chatri doesn’t know anything and he’s the least credible person in mma.

    That gif is brutal. It should end all conversations with Askren. He tweets something, anything, gif of him getting brutally KOed.

    Even though the ref called at 5 seconds, he was out in 2.

    It seems that you don't know what the word "Criticism" means

    he definitely does NOT have a good case.

    1. he would have to prove there was financial loss (damages)
    2. he would have to prove damages came as a direct result of Askrens comments (liability)

    neither of those would be remotely easy.

    Not for anything but Scott’s assessment of Ben was on point.....Gave him respect for his skills and didn’t claim he was good at what he isn’t.

    Scott claims to be a boxer? Really?

    So does Dana.....Why haven’t we seen Coker vs. White yet?

    This is probably why Coker thinks about sueing. It's a baseless claim, yet people like yourself think it might be true. That is super annoying, so he should definitely sue Askren to shut him up
