So we all know that Ben Askren survived the most Ruthless of attacks from Robbie Lawler - ex-UFC champ and ex-most violent man in the world - and ended up with a controversial finish... But he has the chance for true combat sport greatness in the coming months. First up is Beat the Streets vs. Jordan Burroughs on May 6. https://www.btsny.org/news_article/show/1011591 No chance he wins, but it's a super fun match up and for a great cause. After that, it's Funky Ben vs. the current most violent WW; Jorge Masvidal on July 6. The winner of that will likely be next in line for a title shot against the winner of Usman/Covington. Who else in the UFC is as funky as Ben Askren?
