    I hated him, thought he was overrated (he might still be - we'll see). Rooted against him in his last fight against Lawler. Was pissed when he won.

    But I can't hate him anymore. He's just being his own weird self, having fun, not taking things too seriously. He was the antithesis of Cejudo's cringy faux-seriousness and was the only entertaining fighter during the press conference.

    Whatever, I guess I kind of like him now. War Askren, or something.

    He's great. Cejudo is fucking awesome too though. Neither come across as contrived.

    I can't like him, I try, I respect his fighting ability but the guy is so cringe his mother must've looked like she was sucking lemons when he was born.
    I look at him and just think "sssshhhhhh please".

    Looks like he finally won Dana over as well. When he ran out at the end and posed, Dana was cracking up.

    He shut Lee down too and somehow did it in the nicest way possible. Lee who loves to talk shit literally had nothing for Askren.

    I've always liked Askren, but I've also always understood why lots of people find him annoying.

    WHOA that was cold! But I couldn't agree more. Cejudo is like a puppet that just says derivative rhetoric like a fucking mook.
