those Lawler,Masvidal fights were brutal asf , coupled with the fact that he's already well into his 30s and I can see him just calling it a day. Not everyone needs to be a champ in the UFC to prove their dominance and be remembered and Askren is already a two promotion belt holder and legendary wrestler. Another thing that has to be factored in is that his striking skills and athleticism don't really seem to be UF C level and if you put him up against more top guys he could get really hurt, but at the same time he can't just exclusively train those areas the way he would need to cus it would hurt his wrestling . This whole situation is just really strange because he has Had two fights but we don't even know what caliber fighter he is yet . Just curious as to what Sherdog thinks honestly.
